Hello…. welcome to day 8 of my blogmas series. Today is all about the Cracking Christmas tag that the lovely Becca has set up and kindly tagged me in. Thank you Becca!! I am pretty much ready for christmas… well I like to think so anyway. ALL of the presents are brought [organised me] I have the wrapping paper, tags and bows/ribbon all to match. And I have brought some lovely cards to write [I was going to make my own but exam revision got in the way. BOOOO.
Below you will find my answers to the 10 questions within the Cracking Christmas Tag:
– Weirdest family Christmas tradition?
We don’t really have a weird christmas tradition, however a board game is a must at christmas in the family household. And everyone gets very competitive….
– It’s Christmas Eve, what are you doing?
I tend to spend christmas eve making some festive snacks, such as christmas cookies or mince pies. Usually get the vegetables prepped for christmas lunch. I then head to the pub late afternoon/evening and spend time with school friends… a big old catch up with everyone who comes home. It’s a merry occassion.
– Top 3 Christmas dinner components?
Pigs in blankets
– When do you decorate your house? November, the beginning of December, the week of Christmas?
Normally the 2nd weekend in December [depending how it falls] but I am not one of those people who put their decs up in mid November. Everyone is different and I would never ever judge anyone who does though.
– Loved and loathed Christmas songs?
I love Band Aid ‘Do they know it’s christmas time’ it’s very upbeat and really gets me in the christmas mood. One song I loath over is ‘The Thelve Days of Christmas’ it grinds on me… not sure why!
– One big present or lots of little things to open?
I am a big lover of lots of little things to open. I’d much rather open things like makeup, jewellery over a big present like a laptop. I’d much rather buy the bigger items myself in the year.
– What is your favourite Christmas decoration? (Include a photo if you have one)
My favourite christmas decoration is a handmade wreath which comprises of dried fruits and christmas smells!
– Do you like to have a themed tree or one with a bit of everything?
It has to be themed. Gold, Red and Green… Christmas colours, right? Everyone is different and prefers different coloured trees and decorations. However I am very ‘boring’ and traditional in this sense. Simplistic I’d call it.
– Christmas pudding: yay or nay?
I am not a fan of christmas pudding. Give me a chocolate yulelog, chocolate pud or even cheesecake anyday though!
– What’s at the top of your Christmas wishlist this year?
I haven’t asked for much for christmas this year. Moving into my own place next year, all going well! So i’d much rather have vouchers to spend on the house/furntiure etc. Sounds boring I know!!
I hope you enjoyed reading my answers to the FAB Cracking Christmas Tag.
