The Christmas Tag

On Sunday I saw Adele from PalettePale post this tag and I couldn't resist- I love a tag! I have to say some of this was quite hard to answer, I guess I'm not that much of a festive person. I've asked my mum to help me out with a few and ended up talking about a good few memories :)

1. What is your favourite Christmas movie?

Gremlins! It's not explicitly a Christmas movie, but it comes on the TV at that time so I'm including it! Who doesn't love Gizmo? Especially in Gremlins 2 when he makes a little boy and arrow. You go, Gizmo!

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?

My brother and I used to get to open one present on Christmas Eve and open the rest in the morning. As I've gotten older I've bullied my parents into letting me open more, since I stay up until after 12 any way ;)

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?

When I was little, I used to always sook up to my grandad because I knew he'd feed me! After Christmas Lunch, I'd go and sit on his lap and he'd continue to feed me.

4. Favourite festive food?

Roast Tatties! There's just something about Christmas that makes them taste 100x better. Or the Costa Orange/Brownie Hot Chocolates. I've literally had on every day before or after work since they came out.

5. Favourite Christmas Gift?

I've been pretty lucky with gifts- I've always been spoilt rotten and gotten really thoughtful gifts. I've always kind of known what I've wanted and just asked for it.

6. Favourite Christmas Scent?

I'm not a fan of spicy Christmas smells, so probably Peppermint or Cookies, like the Yankee Candles that smell of Cookies!

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?

Not really, just annoy my parents into letting me open a gift!

8. What tops your tree?

Up until 2(ish) years ago it was this little toilet roll tube fairy that either myself or my brother made in school that my mum always always always put on the top of the tree. I don't know why she persisted for so long, as it's honestly one of those hideous things your kid brings home (soz mum) and you have to pretend to like! But, it's incredibly sweet of my mum to to and I suspect I'll end up doing something similar when I've got kids. Right now nothing tops our tree, as the star we bought is too heavy and tips it over!

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?

I used to constantly ask my parents for a puppy for years, so probably that. For a time is was more specific and I wanted a Dalmatian.

10. What's the best part of Christmas for you?

The magic of Christmas Day. I love the effort that my parents put into making lunch and we set up a bigger table in the living room to have lunch on, Every second year my Grandma comes to us too. There's just something about that table all set up, with all the food, the drink (shloer mmmm!) napkins and cracker that makes me smile. Even just the thought of it!
