The Christmas Tag

Even though I don't agree with the commercialisation of Christmas, I love Christmas and I love feeling happy and getting into the festive spirit - I'm certainly not a Scrooge!  I'm a Secular Humanist but I love getting involved in Christmas activities - I just can't help it!  I love Christmas food, Christmas drinks, Christmas films, Christmas songs, Christmas carols and Christmas events!

What is your favourite Christmas film?
Home Alone 2: Lost In New York.

Do you stay in your PJ's or dress up for Christmas?
I always wear my pajamas!

Do you and your family open gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
Christmas Day.

Favourite Christmas song?
I have so many!  Check out my Christmas playlist here.

Favourite Christmas meal or treat?
I absolutely love Christmas dinner!  I usually have roast lamb or chicken (or both), roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings and vegetables (including Brussel sprouts - yes I like Brussel sprouts!)  For dessert I absolutely love apple pie with vanilla custard - both from Marks & Spencer!

Favourite Christmas drink?
Hot chocolate!  I like the Black Forest Hot Chocolate from Costa and the Honey & Almond Hot Chocolate from Starbucks.

Does it snow where you live?
Yes it does, but I don't think I've ever had a white Christmas!

Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
I've always had a fake tree, and I don't mind it at all.

What tops your tree?
A star or an angel.

What's been your favourite Christmas gift?
I don't have one in particular.  To be honest, I don't get involved in purchasing presents for people because I don't agree with it, and growing up I didn't have people buying Christmas presents for me left right and centre.  However, I love things like gift cards, and last year I received a load of goodies from the editor of a blog that I frequently write for!

What's been your favourite Christmas scent?
I love the Frosted Snowflake candle scent from Primark!  It smells so nice and lush!

Christmas tradition?
Spending Christmas in London and visiting Winter Wonderland!

As a child, what was the one (crazy and extravagant) gift you wanted but never received?
I think I would have loved a trip to Lapland.  It still wouldn't go amiss!

What do you think is the best part of Christmas?
Like I mentioned before in this post, there are quite a lot of things I love about Christmas - Christmas food, Christmas drinks, Christmas films, Christmas songs, Christmas carols and Christmas events - but I also view Christmas as a time to get together with the people you care about and happen to be close to.  I always make an effort to spend time with my friends.  We socialise, eat out, visit Winter Wonderland and explore Central London close to Christmas time.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
