I picked this up from Polka Dots and Lipgloss and thought I’d give it a go. I haven’t actually ever done a tag before, so this was pretty exciting for me.
If you’re a blogger, then you’re tagged to do this, and if you’re not then please feel free to leave your answers in the comments box. Well, here goes!
1. Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?
I love the smell of real Christmas trees, but we have three cats that just love to climb trees, so we had to get a synthetic one. I couldn’t bear to see all the leaves falling off a real one when they jumped on it…
2. You’re in a coffee shop, it’s December, what do you pick?
I know this is going to sound strange, but I’m not that much of a coffee drinker (shock, horror!). Instead, I get a super-deluxe-or-whatever-the-equivalent-is hot chocolate with cream. And marshmallows. And more cream.
3. Whats your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?
Colour scheme?! What colour scheme? We basically just put everything we have on the tree. I’m pretty sure we still have some Winnie the Pooh baubles in the bag.
4. Giving or receiving?
I feel pretty bad for saying this, but it’s probably equal. I love seeing the surprise on people’s faces when you give the, something, but, then again, I do also love getting that item at the top of my Christmas list. This applies to both giving and receiving: I love that crinkly feel and sound of wrapping paper.
5. To mince pie or not to?
There is no question to this. Mince pies forever! Christmas would not be the same without it.
6. What’s your traditional Sunday lunch?
One side of my family are peskitarians (they eat fish but not meat), and the other does eat meat, so we usually have a fish and then a stuffed turkey, plus (I’m struggling to remember, here) roast potatoes, Brussels sprouts, parsnips and the famed Christmas pudding. Mmm, I just love Christmas pudding.
7. Christmas day fashion
Usually pyjamas for a good amount of the time, and then a selection of clothes we have been given/loungewear.
8. What’s your favourite Christmas song?
Oh, this is so hard…probably ‘All I want for Christmas is You’. Or ‘Merry Xmas Everybody’.
9. What’s your favourite Christmas film?
It may be a bit childish, but I still like ‘Nativity!’. It’s hilarious.
10. Open presents before or after lunch?
Before. There’s no way I’d hold out until lunchtime!
Are you all feeling as Christmassy as I am? Let me know!
