The Christmas Tag

I was tagged for this post by the really lovely Polly @PollysPBook  
who is such a wonderful and beautiful young lady with a fabulous blog  which is a real must follow blog. I have an enormous amount of respect and admiration for Polly so please go and follow this truly lovely girl!

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie

I think my favourite Christmas movie has got to be Miracle on 34th Street. It is such an awesome movie about a little girl who discovers dreams do come true if you really believe. Six-year-old Susan has doubts about childhood's most enduring miracle - Santa Claus. Her mother told her the "secret" about Santa a long time ago, so Susan doesn't expect to receive the most important gifts on her Christmas list. But after meeting a special department store Santa who's convinced he's the real thing, Susan is given the most precious gift of all - something to believe in.

 2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?

It will be and always has been Christmas morning.It is just not the same opening them on Christmas eve! There always was however a stocking left at the end of my bed when i was little with the most amazing cheap toys in it,i always loved this part of my presents!

3. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?

To be honest,not really.Obviously as i got older,things changed.I have usually worked on Christmas Eve! When i get home however,i will have a glass or 2 of wine and just relax!

 4. Favourite Christmas memory?

Was going down early to see all my presents before my parents when i was about 5 or 6,i only did it once and managed to sneak back upstairs again before being caught. I will always remember that.The excitement was unreal but i was disappointed that i didn't see Santa!

 5. Favourite Christmas scent?

My favourite Christmas scent has got to be the scent of the Christmas tree.We always have had a new real tree rather than an artificial one and i just love the scent of the pine! Christmas is not the same without the scent of a real tree!

 6. Favourite festive food?

I just totally love the Christmas turkey with all the trimmings.We always have the traditional turkey and ham (i dont eat the ham),stuffing,mash and roast potatoes,carrots and creamy cauliflower,it's just so delicious. I always look forward to it.

7. What’s the best part about Christmas for you?

The best part about Christmas for me is buying gifts for the people i love. I am kinda abit of a last minute shopping girl but i do put alot of thought into the gifts that i do eventually buy. And spending time with family and around this time,we always play some sort of a game,i hope it's trivial pursuit,i love this game!

 8. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?

It's always real!

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

I will stay in my PJ's until after breakfast and then dress up to my best for the day ahead. I hope to get a new outfit for Christmas so i will look forward to wearing this!

10. Any Christmas Wishes?

I just hope it is a lovely Christmas with no drama's and that all my family and friends have a lovely one too!
