12 Days of Christmas - The Christmas Tag

Hi there!
OMG Day 11!!! The 12 Days of Christmas is almost over! So perfect time for the Christmas Tag! I love doing Tag Posts So hope you enjoy them too! Let's get started.
What songs really get you into the Christmas spirit?

 Mariah Carey - All I Want for Christmas Is You
Baby Please Come Home
and this year Leona Lewis - One More Sleep
has really been getting me into the Christmas Spirit!

Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?

We have never had a real tree but I do think it would be really nice to go out every year and pick a new tree! But they tend to be quite mis-shaped, when I have a house of my own I'd like a really huge perfect tree haha! That sounds so bad, sorry nature haha!

You're in a Coffee Shop, it's December, what do you pick up?

Skinny hot chocolate with whipped cream! I mentioned in The Sweater Weather Tag that I love hot chocolate but haven't had one for years so now that i've realised that I've been going out of my way to drink more hot chocolate before Christmas! So far I've had 2 mint hot chocolates from beanscene and I had a honeycomb hot chocolate from Costa.

What's your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?

I live at home with my mum and dad so my mum choses the Christmas decorations but if I had my own house I think I would go with red and gold because I love those colours around Christmas time!

Giving or Receiving?

That is a tough one because let's be honest who doesn't love receiving presents! But I do love buying Christmas presents,I just love spoiling my friends and family! To be honest I just love shopping even if its not for me lmao!

To Mince Pie or not to Mince Pie?

Not to mince pie.  I've never tried one but I don't like currents or anything else found in mince meat so I just don't fancy them at all. The little mini ones look so cute though I wish I did like them. They're very festive ha.

What's your traditional Christmas lunch?

Literally everything! ha, we have turkey, stuffing, pigs in blankets, roast potatoes, potato croquettes, yorkshire puddings, roasted veg, gravy. Our plates are literally over flowing with food in our house and every year we make a variety of desserts and after all the dinner no one can ever make it to dessert ha! It is the highlight of me & my sisters year!

Christmas Day Fashion

Last year I went for a festive Christmas jumper but I usually wear something new that I've got for Christmas, preferably something red! This year I have a really cute berry velvet playsuit to wear. Very festive!

What is your favourite Christmas song?

Mariah Carey - All I Want for Christmas Is You

What is your favourite Christmas Film?

I actually watch very few Christmas films in the run up to Christmas I have no idea why not, everyone else seems to haha! But I do love Elf and Jack Frost!

Open presents before or after lunch?

Before! Omg I could never wait till after lunch! Even now that my sisters moved out I still text her and my brother in law to wake them up and go in & wake my mum and dad up so we can all go downstairs together. I literally still jumped on my sisters head to wake her up until she moved out lmao! Don't think my brother in law was too keen on that tradition haha!

Do You Like To Stay in Your PJs Or Dress Up For Christmas?

I stay in my PJ's for most of the morning and my sister comes round in hers haha! We open all our presents and then my mum makes a big buffet fry up for everyone and then about an hour or two before lunch my sister will go home to get dressed and that's when I will get dressed too!

Have You Ever Built a Ginger Bread House?

No but I really want too!! I saw one in Morrisons the other week and really wanted to buy it but my boyriend gave me this really weird look like you are a weirdo your 23 lmao! But I really wish I'd just bought it haha! Boo Nicky!!
This Tag has really got me excited for Christmas! I think this has been my favourite tag yet!
So I tag all everyone who reads this to do this tag too! It's so nice to hear about other peoples Christmas traditions!
Merry Christmas!!!


  1. James will never get used to our Christmas Traditions like jumping on the bed and eating all the turkey in the world haha!! xx
