Thanks to the lovely Chloe from Nurse Fancy Pants, who tagged me to do this post.
1. What is your favourite Christmas movie/movies?
Home Alone without a doubt. Close seconds would be Miracle on 34th Street (either version, I ain’t picky) and It’s A Wonderful Life.
2. Do you open your presents on Christmas eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas morning!!! What is wrong with you? Frankly I’m slightly suspicious of people that open their presents the night before. I bet they sleep in for half of Christmas day instead of spending it with friends & family.
3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
Waking up at 3am Christmas morning one year, raiding my Christmas stocking at the end of the bed and then trying to carry everything in it downstairs, in the pitch dark. Needless to say I dropped everything, waking the whole house.
4. Favourite festive food
Sausage meat stuffing, mulled cider, mulled wine…..basically mulled anything. Leonidas champagne truffles – a Christmas tradition in our house.
5. Favourite Christmas gift
This one is not so much a particular gift, as a gift giving experience. The first Christmas that myself and my husband spent together as boyfriend and girlfriend (many many years ago), he asked one of my best friends to go with him and give the things he picked out for me the once over to ensure that I’d love each and everyone one of them. I did, and while some might see this as lazy and think he basically got her to pick stuff out and just paid for them, I prefer to see it as him trying really hard to get it right and make me happy.
6. Favourite Christmas scent?
Mulled cider….see 4 =D
7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
We try to have all our Christmas shopping done ahead of time, but still head into town to soak up the Christmassy atmosphere and go for a nice lunch somewhere. After munchkin is bathed and put to bed in the obligatory (in our house anyway) new Christmas pjs, we open a bottle of wine in front of the fire and assemble/wrap his Christmas & Santa presents and arrange them under the tree. Then we watch a Christmassy movie before heading to bed to be up early & see the excitement on his little face when he sees what Santa brought him.
8. What tops your tree?
A very, very sparkly angel. In fairness the entire tree is fairly frickin sparkly, I’m a bit of a magpie.
9. As a kid what was the one extravagant gift you asked for but never got?
Fairly typical of a little girl but….a pony.
10. What’s the best part about Christmas for you?
The food…..and the look on my little boys face on Christmas morning.
