I came across this tag when I was looking for some Blogmas inspo and another blogger that goes by the name makeupsavvy did a thing called The Christmas Tag where they answered questions about the best bits about Christmas, traditions and what they get up to. I thought it would be fun so here we go! Also, welcome to day 6, nearly a week in and I am on time, who would have thought.
What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
I am stuck between 3, the top one has to be The Grinch, second is Nativity and third is The Flinstones Christmas Carol.
Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
We open 1 on Christmas Eve, most on Christmas Day and then 1 on Boxing Day.
Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
If I am honest, there’s been some iconic Christmas Days within my family. One year, my dad fell asleep, left the oven on and completely cremated our dinner.
Favourite festive food?
I just can’t help but eat mountains full of chocolate over Christmas, Pringles are also a ‘Christmas’ food to me too but you cannot beat a turkey dinner. With pigs in blankets, cauliflower cheese and stuffing! Oh now I am hungry, I can just taste it as I type this out.
Favourite Christmas gift?
That I have ever received? Easily my Mac from my lovely mum and dad. They bought it for me when I was making a lot of film in college. As a kid, it would have to be this Bratz dollhouse they bought me, I was OBSESSED! I got this when I was about 7/8 so we are going back about 13/14 years ago.
Favourite Christmas scent?
Has to be the smell of pine or fir, the smell of a Christmas tree. Cranberry is a beautiful scent around this time too and can I say the smell of a Christmas dinner is another one of my favourite scents?
Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Our Christmas Eve traditions usually involve preparing everything for work the next day as all my family work in the food industry, on Xmas day we seat around 200 people in 3 hours so it’s hectic! Once everything is prepped we usually sit around in front of the tv, hot drink in hand and have a chat. It doesn’t sound much but it’s special to us.
What tops your tree?
Usually, my mum puts a really vintage doll on the top, sounds creepy, it is. But she decorates it every year so it’s only fair she adds her own touch to it.
As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
I don’t want to sound spoilt but I have never been disappointed, one Christmas I asked for a dog and my dad walked in the door with Jake in his arms!
What’s the best part about Christmas for you?
Everything, from the build up tot he big day. I try and cherish everyday of december.
Feel free to recreate this post and copy the questions, I hope you have enjoyed Blogmas. Posting every day has been hard, I have had to delete about 5 posts and start them from scratch but I wanna be consistent and deliver! Take care – Beth x
