Christmas Tag ♥

I've seen a few of these circulating around so I wanted to join in the fun :)
Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?
Definitely hot chocolate especially when its covered in marshmallows and made from one of them machines they use in coffee shops, I can never make them as good as they do.
Although my dad makes a good hot chocolate :)

Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
I wrap them and then hide them, I have a fiance that likes to poke and feel to see what he's got, its like having a kid sometimes!lol! 
But on Xmas eve we put all of our presents together under the tree so it looks like we have loads :)
Then get all excited about opening them the next day
.


  
Coloured lights on tree/house or white?
Coloured mostly, but I do love the blue flashing ones as well, i have some on my tree atm and they make it look really pretty :)

Do you hang mistletoe?
I've never done that if I'm quite honest, maybe that should be a sure sign to get some this year just as an excuse for a special kiss.

When do you put your decorations up?
If i had it my way the very 1st day of December, its took alot of effort to put them up this year as I was unsure of what tree I wanted to use since we now have a cat that likes to climb anything he can't!
So this year they've been put up a little later, but better late than never ey!
 What is your favourite holiday dish?
  Mince Pies, its one of the best thing about Xmas, its a good job they only come out once a year as I eat that many i tend to be sick of them by Christmas day, till a whole year later, I love them with condensed milk when there hot, ohh and you can't forget the good old tin of Quality Street, and Xmas roast dinners!


Favourite Holiday memory as a child?
So many, my favourite ones has to be when the decorations were up at Xmas time as a kid, my parents used to go all out in the living room, it was the same every year but I just used to love the cosy feel of Xmas time as a kid and being all excited for Christmas day, I'd literly count down the days, now its not the same as when your a kid but it still excites me :)
Oh and the best memory I had as a kid was when i got a Sindy Jeep for Christmas, complete with a new Sindy, i even got a Pocahontas that Xmas too that had a dress that changed colour in the sunshine.

When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
I never really found out he didn't exist, I guess I kinda just put two and two together, I can never remember getting upset he didn't exist, I was always a smart kid so i figured it out pretty quickly.


Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? 
No, that's just torture, that's like having one pringle from a tube of pringles.
and having the rest the next day!lol!

 How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
With matching baubles and tinsel :) I love anything gold, pink and blue, i try to stick to that theme when I'm decorating my tree!hehe!

Snow! Love it or Dread it?
I love it, but not when I fall on my bum, that doesn't half hurt, and i hate how long it sometimes takes to build a snowman.
I'm going to say love, but this could all change if I'm driving by next year!lol!


Can you ice skate?
Not for toffee, I spend most of the time clinging onto the sides, I went a few years ago and warned my boyfriend to not drag me, what did he did, drag me, i fell over and he fell down with me right on his back!haha!he wanted to go home after that!

Do you remember your favourite gift?
I've had loads of fab gifts, the best ones where when I was younger, I had Sindy's, Furbies, Dolls, you name it, and them sorts of presents are always amazing when you get them as a kid as you really want them but don't have any money.


What’s the most important thing about the Holidays for you?
 Family time, I lost my mum one Christmas ago, this is my second without her, so i really cherish every Christmas I spend with the people I love.


What is your favourite Holiday Dessert?
  Mine Pies, you know this :)
& my auntie makes this amazing trifle to go with a buffet later, its incredible.


What is your favourite holiday tradition?
I like to watch a really xmassy film on Christmas Eve to really get me in the mood and feeling like a kid again, my favs are Home Alone, The Grinch, Santa Clause,
Last year I watched Jingle All The Way, Love that film!lol! 


What tops your tree?
 Nothing unusual, this year I've just got some pointy thing I got with my decorations. 


Which do you prefer giving or receiving?
Giving by far, I love seeing the look on peoples faces when I get them something they really like for Christmas :)


Candy Canes: Yuck or Yum?
There not my first choice of sweets but I do like them :)


Favourite Christmas show?
Will most probably have to be the Royal Family, I love there Xmas specials there so funny, and kind of remind me of my family.


Saddest Christmas Song?
I can't answer this one since Xmas songs are meant to get you in the spirit aren't they?

If you've read this I tag you :)
