Christmas Tag

Thank Nat for the tag and, yes, I do love Christmas........how did you guess LOL!

Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate: Well I've never had Egg Nog so it's got to be Hot Chocolate. Funnily enough, although I'm not a huge fan of chocolate I do love a big mug of Hot Chocolate with whipped cream on top.

Coloured lights on the tree/house or white: White on the house but we've only got a strip of icicle lights out there that hang along the garage and porch. We've got 2 trees, on in the living room that has white and gold lights on it and another in the conservatory that has white and blue lights on it. I don't like the multi coloured lights much as I prefer to stick to a colour scheme.

Do you hang mistletoe: No, don't bother and never really thought to either.

When do you put your decorations up: As early in December as possible, I started putting them up on the 1st this year but they normally take about 3 days cos I'm soooooo slow at decorating.

What’s your fave holiday dish (excluding desserts): I haven't got a favourite, if we entertain we normally have turkey because it's the easiest for me to cook but it's just the 2 of us on Christmas Day this year so we're having beef. But we're especially looking forward to yorkshire puds, roast potatoes and stuffing because we rarely eat those during the year.

What’s your fave Christmas memory as a child: I have lots of fab memories, my mum and dad always made Christmas very special and exciting.

How and when did you learn the truth about Santa: Actually I can't remember when I learnt the truth about Santa. I guess deep down I like to think that he really does exist LOL!

Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve: No, unless it's after midnight, we have done that on a couple of occassions. This year we are having some prezzies on Christmas Eve because my mum is here but she's going home Christmas Eve evening so we'll have our Christmas Day with her a day earlier.

How do you decorate your Christmas Tree: I'm a real stickler for colour schemes and a huge passion for buying more (that we really don't need). The tree in the living room has lights and loads and loads of different baubles and hanging things, all in burgundy and gold but no tinsel. The tree in the conservatory is covered in blue and white and that one does have tinsel.

Snow! Love it or dread it: Love it if I can go and walk in it, but hate it when I have to drive in it.

Can you ice skate: I used to go ice skating as a child, I remember going loads of times but I never mastered it.

Do you remember your fave gift: No, I've been fortunate to have received lots of lovely gifts so I can't think of just one.

What’s the most important thing about Christmas for you: That everyone is happy and healthy and it's fab to ring round the family on Christmas morning.

What tops your tree: A ribbon shaped star thingy.

Which do you prefer, giving or receiving: Well, I'd be lying if I said I didn't like receiving but overall I guess I would prefer giving.

What is your fave Christmas song: Ooh lots of them, they drive Tony mad LOL! I can't think of any to name.

What’s your fave Christmas story: I love lots of Christmas stories, I thought The Snowman was brilliant, especially to that music, walking in the air, or whatever it was called.........isn't my memory just pants LOL!

Right, I'm going to tag Caroline, cos she lurves Christmas too.
