Time for a Christmas Tag I think, everyone loves a random tag.
Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
Rudolph, Prancer, Dancer, Donner, Blitzin, Comet, Cupid.. no although I checked after doing this from memory and can’t believe I missed out Dasher when it’s so close to Dancer and managed to remember Blitzin but not Vixen.
Be honest, do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
Honestly I love giving gifts more now. As a kid I definitely loved receiving them more but as I have gotten older there is something amazing about seeing someone open their present that you have spent your time picking out for them.
Do you make New Years resolutions? Do you stick to them?
I’d say they are more goals than resolutions. Resolutions always make it sound like you need to give something up whereas goals is more something to work to. Saying that I do give myself things to work on for the year to follow and at least in the past couple of years I’d say I have stuck to them.
Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
No never! I know a lot of people do this and normally have a little traditional of opening Christmas jammies but nope everything gets left until Christmas Day.
Have you ever made a snowman?
Suddenly feel really bad for younger me because I honestly don’t think I have ever made a proper snowman.
Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
I think I am getting better and to be honest I would say I am pretty good, some look better than others. Then I compare my presents to the ones my sister-in-law wrapped and I am put to shame (she is an absolute pro).
Do you wake up early in the morning on Christmas?
Yes, doesn’t everyone?
What is the best Christmas gift you’ve ever received?
I have been fortunate enough to always receive amazing presents from both my family and my friends but I am a sucker for sentimental presents and that would mean my favourite one is the Disney print I got from my niece at her first Christmas.
What is your all-time favorite holiday food/sweet treat?
Favourite food has got to be either pigs in blankets or stuffing, I absolutely love stuffing. Not sure about sweet treat, do Christmas coffees count since they have all sorts of syrups in them?
Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
Fake, never had a real one
What is your favorite Christmas film?
Aww this is tough because I am kind of going to cheat and say two. The Santa Clause is probably my favourite to watch but I can’t get excited for Christmas without watching Flintstones Christmas Carol on 1st December every year. I’ve watched it for as long as I can remember.
What is your favorite Christmas song?
I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday by Wizzard.. it isn’t Christmas until I have heard that song
What is your favorite’s Christmas smell?
Not sure if it is a major Christmas smell but I always remember it from when I was younger and it’s an apple type of smell. Spiced apple or something like that and honestly it really is just lovely and warming.
What makes the holidays special for you?
As cliche and sappy as it sounds, without question it is the people I love most that make Christmas Day and the entire build up to it so special. I love having a time where everyone focuses on all those they love most and it’s just great to have that time set aside when visiting and spending your time with your loved one is expected. Best time of the year.
What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
Has to be Disneyworld! I seriously need to be there at Christmas time at least once.
When do you start getting excited for Christmas?
I start getting ready as early as October but I don’t get properly excited until the end of November
What you like the most Christmas day or a New Year?
I am definitely a Christmas Day girl through and through. I always find New Year quite sad whereas I am up early and raring to go on Christmas Day.
Where do you usually spend your holiday?
I spend pretty much all day at home but over the past couple of years I go up to my brother’s house in the morning.
You have been granted one Christmas wish…what will it be?
For this year as selfish as it sounds I would wish for me to be able to reach my goals for next year and get a better paid job and move out in 2019. Putting that to one side and as cliche as it sounds I would genuinely just want to be happy and for those I love to be happy too.
A little bit of fun so would love to hear anyone else’s answers who decide to go a Christmas tag.
