I was tagged by the beautiful Rachael at From, Rachael Claire to join in with this lovely little festive tag she created! I do love a good tag, anyway, on with the festivities!
FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS MOVIE AND WHY?
The Greatest Store in the World! By a loooong chalk, I used to watch this film back to back on the VHS copy my family recorded years ago and since haven’t been able to find it online! Boo!
It has Ricky Tomlinson in it so it’s automatically awesome. If anyone knows where I can get hold of a copy, let me know! I will love you forever!
Also Home Alone. The first one (which is clearly the best one).
TOP THREE CHRISTMAS SONGS ON YOUR PLAYLIST
Oh, I can’t choose just three! These are my ultimate top songs which have remained a favourite for so long now I’ve lost count how many times I’ve listened to them over the years:
I also love a good choir, nothing says Christmastime quite like a full choir singing Christmas carols.
FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS TRADITION
All our traditions so far have gone out of the window this year thanks to moving house a few weeks before the big day but I think my current favourite would have to be us going to my Grandma’s house for dinner.
WHAT IS ON YOUR CHRISTMAS BUCKET LIST?
Make Brie and Cranberry Hedgehog Bread. Ben ate half of the loaf I bought specifically for this so it’s going to be a butchered hedgehog.
BUDDY THE ELF OR EBENEZER SCROOGE?
Buddy The Elf with a Scrooge hat. I love the magic, the build up, it’s all wonderful but moving house and general adulting has left a festive hole in my life at the moment!
BEST THING ABOUT BEING A PARENT AT CHRISTMAS?
Seeing the kids get excited, definitely. It’s like revisiting the true magic through their eyes.
ONE PRESENT YOU ALWAYS ASKED FOR AS A CHILD BUT NEVER RECEIVED?
A baby Annabel.
DO YOU HAVE CHRISTMAS EVE TRADITIONS?
Normally I do a little Xmas Eve box but with the absolute craziness of moving house I haven’t got round to it this year. I think I may just make the girls some hot chocolates and sit down as a family and binge watch Christmas films on Netflix.
WHAT FESTIVE BEVERAGE TICKLES YOUR TINSEL?
Shloer, this shit tastes like actual wine. So much so that I had to check. Perfect for when you’re pregnant and can’t drink. Also Appletiser is a good one for the prego ladies.
Starbucks Billionaires Hot Chocolate is also amazing, it’s basically 10 bags of sugar in a cup but the calories are worth it 100%.
BEST PRESENT YOU EVER RECEIVED?
Sabrina the Teenage Witch Brat Attack and Orly’s Draw-a-Story when I was 8 years old.
SPROUTS ON CHRISTMAS DAY? YAY OR NAY?
WHAT IS YOUR IDEAL CHRISTMAS?
Loads of food, ample fizzy drinks, happy faces and a good tree! It’s the simple things.
