song of the day - Santa Baby by Kylie Minogue
This is something I have said multiple times, but I cannot wait for Christmas. To get fully in the mood I thought I'd do the Christmas tag. This tag has been floating around for a while now, so here we go!
1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
The Muppets Christmas Carol, hands down. I love it so much! Gonzo and Rizzo are just perfection. "Oh, there goes Mr Humbug, there goes Mr Grim...". Then of course there's Home Alone, and Jingle All The Way.
2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas Eve, we (and by 'we' I mean my family and I) eat around 5/6, then after that we'll hand out the gifts and open them. We do our main meal on Christmas Eve too.
3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
Not really. I remember one year when my Grandma got one of mine and my brothers presents mixed up and so he got my tights and I got his socks.
4. Favourite festive food?
Poppyseed cake. I love the stuff, but my Grandad would only make it for Christmas, so I'd look forward to it for all of December, then finally after our main meal I could have some.
5. Favourite Christmas gift?
I don't think I have one. As a child I loved a little kitchen that I got. I remember playing with it all the time, and using salt and pepper as pretend food in the pots.
6. Favourite Christmas scent?
Does 'warmth' count? Like, after you've been out all day, and you get inside and that heat immediately hits you, and the air kind of smells 'warm'.
7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
As I mentioned above we celebrate on Christmas Eve rather than on the day itself, so I guess that's kind of a tradition.
8. What tops your tree?
For the last few years a Star.
9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
I honestly don't know. I can't remember ever asking for a Christmas gift, or wanting something really badly. I probably did, but nothing stands out.
10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
The three Fs. Food, family, and friends.
