What I Love About The Festive Season – The Christmas Tag


I have been asked by my good friend Zena to take part in The Christmas Tag, and had great fun in answering the questions! I tag anyone who is reading this to join in too. Merry Christmas!

The Christmas Tag

What’s Your Favourite Christmas Movie?

Oooooh Can I have several? Love Actually, Deck the Halls and Christmas with the Kranks are awesome. I have to watch the Gavin and Stacey Christmas Special too! At least 5 times!

Have You Ever Had A White Christmas?

Not that I can remember. We had severe snow in something like 1976 but I was only 5! We did have a very sparkly, heavily frosted and frozen one in 2009 – just after I had  moved house, and a little snow before Christmas. Pickle has never seen snow.

What Is Your Favourite Christmas Song?

Oh what a hard one! Erm, ‘I Believe in Father Christmas’ is just beautiful and my guilty pleasure is Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’.

Do You Open Any Presents On Christmas Eve?

No. Well, that’s a fib actually – my sister, brother in law and nephew come over for a Chinese Takeaway and we open each others. This is a tradition we started in 2009 when I had our first Christmas in my new house.

Can You Name All Of Santa’s Reindeer?

Heck no! Ok – Rudolph, Prancer, Dancer, Vixen, Dasher, Prancer, Donna, Blitzen, oooh I didn’t do too badly!

What Holiday Traditions Are You Looking Forward To This Year?

As I have mentioned, our Christmas Eve takeaway, putting out the reindeer food, leaving the carrot and mince pie and this year we are going to leave Santa some Bailey’s 😉 We went to Disney Land Paris on the 19th, and drove home on 23rd so didn’t have much time! I also love going to the Boxing Day swim in Tenby if the weather is ok, having breakfast in town. We do the same in Saundersfoot on New Years Day and then spend the day at my parents. We saw the local village pantomime before Chrismas which has become a tradition too.

Is Your Christmas Tree Real or Fake?

We had a gorgeous real one last year to review and we loved it, but this year we have two new kittens so have had a new fake one.

What Is Your Favourite Holiday Treat/Food/Sweet?

Celebrations and Heros chocs. Baileys. Mint Matchmakers, Guylian chocolate shells and I love a traditional Christmas Dinner and a buffet kind of tea.

Be Honest, Do You Like Giving Or Receiving Gifts Better?

I don’t get many gifts so really love having the ones I do. I LOVE giving – especially to the children and when I know the recipient os going to LOVE the gift.

What Is The Best Christmas Present You Ever Received?

My early present in 1999 – my daughter who was born on 10 December. Next best would be any of my childhood presents – I particularly remember a new radio cassette player!

What Would Your Dream Place To Visit For The Holiday Season?

Lapland with the children. I have always wanted to take them. Disney World is my joint first choice actually. Disneyland Paris was pretty awesome though.

Are You A Pro Present Wrapper Or Do You Fail Miserably?

Oh my gosh. I am a huge fail! I am useless.

Most Memorable Christmas Memory?

I honestly can’t say. Everyone is awesome.

What Made You Realise The Truth About Santa?

What truth?

What Makes The Holidays Special For You?

Being with my family, eating what you want when you want and doing nothing for a few days.

I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Tag answers! Why not answer your favourite question in the comments? Merry Christmas!
