Christmas Tag 2016

Christmas is definitely my favorite time of the year and so I had to do the Christmas Tag 2016.  I'll be doing a Q&A on my Christmas favorites this year as I've been tagged by another blogger.

What’s your favourite Christmas Movie?
There are so many great Christmas movies my favorites from when I was a child are Miracle on 34th Street and Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas.A more recent film I love is Arthur Christmas. 

 Have you ever had a white Christmas?
I can vaguely remember one year when I was little building a snowman in the back garden of my Nan and Granddad's house. I think it was Christmas day but can't be 100% sure. 

Where do you usually spend your holiday?
Since having Blake we usually spend Christmas Eve and Christmas Day the 3 of us having family time and then Boxing day we usually go over to spend time with Stuart's family.

What is your favourite Christmas song?
This is a really tough one I love Micheal Buble White Christmas, but I also love classics such as Last Christmas by Wham. 

Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
No, as a child I use to open one on Christmas eve before bed but it's not something I do anymore. 

Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
Ok, I'll give it ago: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen and Rudolph. 

Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
Fake, I'd love to get a real tree one day but would have to be when Blake and any other children we may have are older. 

What is your all time favourite holiday treat/food/sweet?
Gosh Christmas there is always good food though. I love pigs in blankets and Mince Pies are a must. 

Be honest, do you like giving or receiving gifts better?
I do love receiving gifts especially when someone has put great effort into their gift for you. However I do love seeing people open the gifts we have got them, more so since having Blake and seeing his face light up and get so excited. 

What is the best Christmas present you’ve ever received?
Other than 2014 when Blake was born 9 days before Christmas,it has to be a bracelet I got from him last year. It was such an unexpected gift and Stuart and Blake chose well. 

What would be your dream place to visit during the holiday season?
A lot of people have said New York but for me it would be somewhere like Lapland or even Iceland.

Are you a Pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably?
Fail miserably I hate wrapping presents especially ones that are odd shapes. 

Most memorable Christmas moment?
Opening my presents Christmas morning with my Sister and parents when younger it was always magical and a memory I will never forget. 

What made you realise the truth about Santa?
I was about 4 I think and I had decided to sneak downstairs to see if Santa had been and caught my Mum and Dad putting presents into our sacks and stockings.  

What makes the holidays special for you?
Spending time with family relaxing, watching films and just generally having lots of fun together. We also do a Christmas eve basket which we fill with fab stuff for Blake to do with us during the day/evening.
