The Christmas Tag


I've never done a tag before, so I thought what better topic to do it on than Christmas? I'm currently sat watching Miracle on 34th Street and feeling VERY Christmassy - so I'm definitely in the mood to write about my favourite time of year. So sit back, grab yourself a mince pie and enjoy!

Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
Last year my Dad decided that we were going all out for Christmas (he called it XXXL Xmas...). So he bought us all Christmas Jumpers which we got to open on Christmas Eve. However apart from that we have never opened presents before Christmas Day itself. I actually really like the idea of getting matching Christmas pyjamas for the whole family on Christmas Eve - maybe next year...

Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
When we used to live in Portugal, we always had a fake Christmas tree - just as it was easier to get hold of and keep for following years. However ever since moving back to the UK, it's real all the way. The Christmas Tree smell is my favourite thing ever. 

What is your favorite Christmas film?
I can't name one, so heres a list of 5 that I love:
  1. Elf
  2. Love Actually
  3. The Holiday
  4. The Polar Express
  5. Miracle On 34th Street 
Where do you usually spend your holiday?
At home or at my Grandmas up in Hull with my cousins. 

What is your favorite Christmas song?
Again, there is no way I can do one of these, so here 5 that I love:
  1. All I Want For Christmas Is You - Mariah Carey
  2. Driving Home For Christmas - Chris Rea
  3. Santa Tell Me - Arianna Grande
  4. Cold December Night - Michael Buble
  5. Fairy Tale Of New York - The Pogues
What is your all-time favorite holiday food/sweet treat?
My favourite holiday food is pigs in blankets and my favourite holiday sweet treat is Christmas Pudding with brandy sauce. 

What is your favorite thing about christmas?
Since moving to university and living away from home, my favourite thing about Christmas is being with my family and spending time with my little brothers. It's one of my brothers birthday on Christmas Eve which makes it even more special. 

When do you start getting excited for Christmas?
Now this may be slightly controversial but I start getting excited the day after Halloween...so the 1st November - and the Christmas songs and movies start being played mid-November in my flat!

What is the best Christmas gift you’ve ever received?When I was 11 years old, my mum and dad bought me a rabbit for Christmas. I named him Buttons and he still is to this day, my favourite Christmas present. On Christmas morning I found a bundle of straw with red ribbon wrapped around it in my stocking. I then followed a trail of straw out to the garage where Buttons was, in his new cage. He was the cuddliest and sweetest thing I had ever seen, and despite him biting me the first time I held him, I loved him so so much. 

What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
One year, I would love to visit Australia for Christmas. Although I love Christmas in the UK and the cold, I think it would be so cool to experience it in the sunshine and on a beach!

Most memorable Holiday moment?
Last year my Grandma came waltzing down the stairs in a Mrs Clause dress that she'd bought from Primark - it was the funniest thing I'd ever seen!

Do you make New Years resolutions? Do you stick to them?
I try to, but if I'm completely honest, I always forget what they are...

What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year?
I'm really looking forward to the time between Christmas Dinner and pudding. Everyone's had one too many glasses of wine and we usually all just sit around the table, completely stuffed, playing silly games until our stomachs are hurting from giggling so much. I've actually bought some games for us to play this year - one of which involved harmonicas and disney songs (let's see how that one goes down...!).

I hope you enjoyed this little Christmas tag! If you answer these questions, or have done a Christmas Tag before, leave your link down below, so we can all have a read!

Lots of Christmas Love, Katie xo

p.s. 15 days to goooo!
