The Christmas Tag


Hi everyone! I saw the Christmas Tag floating around recently and I never normally do these types of videos however I absolutely love Christmas, I just broke up from university today and I'm feeling all festive so I really wanted to do this post to make me even more excited and I hope it makes you feel excited as well! 

1. What are your favourite Christmas movies?

Home Alone without a doubt is my favourite Christmas movie! Only 1&2 though, the other two are so pointless. I watched it for the first time this year yesterday and it made me feel so happy. The other one I love is so random because it's definitely not a popular one but it's Christmas With The Kranks, it's so weird because I feel like hardly anyone has heard of it but I find it so funny! I have a major unpopular opinion in the fact that I don't really like Elf, I could just never get into it! I've also never seen Love Actually but I'm going to get round to that this year! Also it's just came into my head and it might not seem like a Christmas film but it is actually counted as one and it's Gremlins, it's so cheesy and weird and fake scary, but it still makes me feel like it's Christmas.

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?

Christmas morning always! I know some people do things like open one present on Christmas Eve but I would have to save everything for Christmas morning, it's just so much more exciting that way. I'm almost 21 but you still cannot beat the feeling of going downstairs on Christmas morning and seeing all your presents!

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?

This is going to sound so depressing but I don't really have one that sticks out, divorced parents meant that the past few years I've had to have a Christmas where I have to go all over the place, kind of like spreading yourself too thin so they haven't been too fun. As well this will be my boyfriend and I's fifth Christmas together but for the past four we have hardly got to spend anytime together because we felt like we had to please everyone so we put what we wanted to the side, this year though we decided to just do what we want, I'll still be all over the place but we will be doing it together so I can't wait to finally make lots of good memories this Christmas!

4. Favourite festive food? 

There is so many that I love! I get so excited for my Christmas dinner every year and I'm going out for it this year so I'm even more excited. Pigs in blankets and turkey definitely have to be up there, and stuffing and mash potato, you can get them all year round but they are just so much better at Christmas! I'm really not one for festive starters and desserts like prawn cocktail and Christmas pudding, I actually couldn't think of anything worse but the actually dinner itself is my favourite, I love everything about it! 

5. Favourite Christmas scent?

I don't really have a favourite scent at this time of year, there are a lot of festive candles that get brought out that smell really good but I'm not in love with them, Snowflake Cookie by Yankee Candle comes pretty close though, I'm going to say the smell of Christmas dinner cooking, there is nothing better!

6. What tops your tree?

In my house I actually live with the Grinch (my Dad) so he won't put Christmas decorations up, how rubbish is that! My boyfriend's Mum got me a little tree for my room though, however it doesn't have anything at the top of it so that's a bit rubbish as well, however I'm waking up at my boyfriend's house Christmas day this year and I just helped them decorate their tree this week and they put a star on top, if I had my own tree I'd definitely go for a star as well. 

7. As a child, what was one extravagant gift you always asked for but never got?

This is so easy, I always wanted a puppy but it never happened! This was an all year round thing as well, not just at Christmas, but I used that opportunity to ask again, didn't ever get one though!

8. What is the best thing about Christmas for you?

Giving people their presents definitely, I think I have done well buying gifts this year if I say so myself and I can't wait to see people's faces when they get them! Also receiving presents isn't bad either if I'm being totally honest...and the Christmas dinner! 

I actually had so much fun writing this, I feel so Christmassy now however that will probably end in a couple of hours when I have to go to work...retail life at Christmas, if you work in retail as well then you will know exactly how I'm feeling. If you do this tag let me know in the comments, I'd love to read yours!

  9. Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without Home Alone! :D Also, opening presents on Christmas Eve isn't just a preference thing. In many Eastern European countries, Christmas Eve is more important than Christmas Day - we have a big, 12 dishes dinner and open presents afterwards. :)

  11. I love this tag - especially reading them! It's funny how similar we are Lauren, my parents are divorced too and I feel like I'm continuously running around trying to make both sides happy! It's also mine & my boyfriends fifth Christmas together yet the first one where we're actually spending the whole day together!
