The Christmas tag!

I’ve seen a few varities of the Christmas tag floating around the blogosphere recently, so I’ve decided to jump on the bangwagon and do this one I found. It was a lot of fun and it’s nice to do one final festive post before the big day!

What time of the year do you start your Christmas shopping?
Normally December, I’m super unorganised but this year I had an excuse, I had mocks the first week of December so I was forced not to think about Christmas until those were out of the way!

Do you have any festive recipes for food or drink you limit solely to the Christmas season to share?
Not really! Although, mum will always get out the goose fat to roast the potatoes in on Christmas day!

Tell me how Christmas goes home in your home
I wake up super early, but we end up having to wait until 10ish because my brothers are crazy and seem to have no excitement in them. We then all get a cup of tea and cook mums homemade sausage rolls for breakfast and crack on opening the Sack presents from Santa Clause! We then chill for a little while and go round my Nan and Step-grandads to say hello. Then we go back home, the big dinner is cooked and both my grandparents come round and eat! We’ll then either open the tree presents after that or the next day once all the men are sobered up! Although this year we’re doing this on Boxing day because my mum and brother are working on Christmas day! Boooooo! 🙁

Do you have any Christmas traditions?
We always have homemade sausage rolls for breakfast on Christmas day!

Do you have a favourite festive coffee?
I’m not a coffee drinker, but I love Costa’s honeycomb hot chocolate!

Do you have a favourite Christmas song?
Urgh, please don’t make me choose!! I love all of them!!!

What do you do on Christmas eve?
We used to go to church however we’ve kind of moved away from that in the past few years, I just tend to watch Christmas movies now!!

What’s your Christmas wrapping strategy? Do you have one?
Stick the paper and the present together using sellotape before wrapping to get a really tight wrap. If all else fails get mum on the case!

What’s your dream gift this year?
Waking up to find The Wanted under my tree wouldn’t be too bad.

Describe your Christmas tree. How tall? Real or artifical? How is it decorated?
Fairly tall, artificial and decorated with lights and lots of little decorations we’ve collected over the years, so every one is special!

Do you decorate just the Christmas tree or other areas of your house e.g. windows, banisters?
We decorate the whole front room with a banner, candles, ornaments and more! We also have a Christmas table cloth and tend to put up some dangly lights and a flashing ‘Merry Christmas’ sign!

What do you wear to Christmas parties and what do you wear on Christmas day?
Is it bad that I don’t think I’ve ever been to a Christmas party?! On Christmas day it has to be PJ’s at first, then obviously something you’ve just opened for the rest of the day!

I hope all my lovely readers have a brilliant Christmas, I’ll see you in a few days! Merry Christmas! Love,
