The Christmas Tag 2014

It's Christmas Eve and I'm writing this post whilst listening to Band Aid! The seasonal cheer is officially in full swing and it's time to take a trip down a rather festive lane to talk all things Christmas. Don't forget to take a look at the lovely Lottie Pearce's blog where I first found this tag!

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
Either The Holiday or The Muppet's Christmas Carol, though in all honesty I'll watch and love absolutely anything if it's remotely festive!

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas morning! I can't imagine cracking into my gifts the night before. Besides, Santa wouldn't have put them there yet...

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
I don't really have one specific memory, I more love the general festive atmosphere of the Christmas season! Though one of my favourite festive days was definitely going to the German Market in Birmingham for my first official date with my boyfriend three years ago, it always holds a special place in my heart!

4. Favourite festive food?
Stuffing! I only realised this year that stuffing wasn't solely a Christmas food but I still associate it with the big feast. Being vegetarian I also adore a good nut roast, and as a chocaholic any Quality Street kicking around are more than welcome.

5. Favourite Christmas gift?
I actually can't think of any one gift! I tend to ask for and receive several smaller bits than big main presents as such but I much prefer that anyway. I am such a fiend for pretty little bits and pieces that I can use regularly so anything along that line is well-loved! I also adore giving people gifts, especially people that don't often buy for themselves - I'm looking at you Mummy - so Christmas is the best time of year for that!

6. Favourite Christmas scent?
If you've been reading for a while you'll know this one; the Sparkling Spice Winter Warmer by The Country Candle Company! Beyond divine.

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Rushing around with my Mum like a pair of lunatics delivering presents to family friends! Though we've started a tradition this year that as we watch The Holiday all year round and it is our absolute favourite film, we're now going to have a 'Christmas Fettuccine' each Christmas Eve, just like Cameron and Kate. Creamy white wine pasta may not be festive, but it sure is scrumptious.

8. What tops your tree?
A little gold wire reindeer.

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
I just asked my Mum and she couldn't recall anything too wacky, but I distinctly remember wanting the black PVC thigh high boots that Christina Millian wore in the Dip It Low video when I was 11. Such a shocker that she didn't buy them for me. #slutchild

10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
The films, the food and the family! I am such a festive person and adore getting cosy and really into a holiday, and am also a massive foodie. Plus my Mum and I are super close, so spending the day with her indulging in all of our favourite meals and watching cute films is as good as it gets for me!

I just want to wish everyone who reads my blog the Merriest of Christmases, and a massive thank you to all of you for reading and commenting.
Have a wonderful festive period and I'll be back very soon!
