Random Chatter

The Christmas Tag

I saw this tag on Howling Libraries and felt it would be a lovely tag to do!

What is your favourite Christmas movie? 
For all its faults, I really love Love Actually.

I do also love The Snowman. Christmas is not Christmas without it.

What is your favourite Christmas song? 
I will offer one classic and a more out-there choice. So I would say Last Christmas by Wham! and Zombie Christmas by Emmy The Great and Tim Wheeler.

Do you open presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?
My daughter gets a stocking and opens some pressies on Christmas morning. The rest of us usually get some presents under the tree in the afternoon.

What is your favourite Christmas scent?
Mulled wine spices

What tops your tree?
A tacky golden plastic star.

Is your tree fake or real?
For the first time in years we have a real tree this year.

Have you ever gone Christmas carolling?
No no no. I have a voice like an old crow. No one would want to hear that!

White or coloured lights?
Coloured. I like my Christmas world to look like a unicorn has vomited all over it.

Eggnog or Hot Chocolate?
Eggnog is not much of a thing in Europe, so definitely hot chocolate.

Are you a ‘Buddy the Elf’ or ‘Ebenezer Scrooge’?
Somewhere in the middle. I love to give nice gifts and make the house look nice, but being sensible about it.

When do you put up your tree/decorations?
We put them up early December. We got a good deal on a tree, so were a little early this year.

If you could travel anywhere for the holiday season, where would it be?
Just like every year, we are off to England to see my husband’s family for a lovely old fashioned Christmas. I love being there over Christmas! I would not want to be anywhere else.

Do you make New Year’s resolutions?
Yes, but I never take them too seriously!
