Christmas Tag 2014

The lovely Beki from tagged me in the 2014 Christmas tag. This is my first tag, nobody had tagged me before, so without further ado, here we go. 

Q1. What are your favourite Christmas Movies?

Oooh, that's a tough one, there are so many, I like the Polar Express and the Muppet Christmas Carol. I also love Disney films, at Christmas there always seems to be at least one Disney film scheduled. 

Q2: Do you open your Christmas presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?

Always Christmas day!

Q3: Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?

Waking up Christmas morning and feeling around at the bottom of the bed to find my stocking. Without fail I would always get a satsuma and a bag of gold chocolate coins at the bottom of the stocking. As a child I always tried to stay away to catch Father Christmas, of course I ended up falling asleep.

Q4: Favourite festive food?

I have a major sweet tooth and love all the chocolatey Christmas treats. I love a good Chocolate yule log with double cream. I also love the roast lunch on Christmas day, no matter what meat it is, the food always tastes better than a normal roast.

Q5: Favourite Christmas Gift?

That is hard to chose. My parents and husband have bought me some gorgeous presents over the years I have been giving some gorgeous jewellery which I call my special jewellery. Items which I wear on special occasions, the type which I would hand down to future generations. 

Q6: Favourite Christmas scent?

Has to be a pomander! A pomander is an orange spiked with cloves, the zesty, citrus scent mixed with the warming smell of cloves, stunning. I also love the smell of real Christmas trees as well as the smell of a roast lunch cooking in the oven on Christmas day. 

Q7: Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?

For the last few years my husband and I have gone for a pub supper with his parents in town. We both usually work Christmas Eve, but we can usually leave work a little earlier which is nice. Christmas day is usually spent with my parents. My husband is one of three and I am an only child. This will be our last year as just husband and wife as our first baby is due in the spring.

Q8: What tops your tree?

This year it a glittery star is on the top of the tree. I always go to mum and dads to help them decorate their tree. They have this really old angel which sits ontop of their tree. The angel has seen better days but it is nice to have an ornament which has some memories and traditions.

Q9: As a child what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?

I pestered my parents for a pony! 

Q10: What is the best part about Christmas for you?

Spending time off work with friends and family and eating lots of tasty food. 

I tag these lovely bloggers for the Christmas tag 2014.
