Recently I’ve received a tag into a Christmas Tag by Hilesh over at https://sightswithhsite.wordpress.com
Now if you follow my blog you will know I’m not a really Christmassy person but it would be rude of me not to join in!
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS MOVIE?
I don’t really have a favourite Christmas movie, not something that I watch every year that is. I do however love to record the movies on Christmas24, Channel 5 and other Sky channels to watch over the weekend and Christmas. 📺❤️💋
HAVE YOU EVER HAD A WHITE CHRISTMAS?
Maybe a couple of sprinkles but never a full on White Christmas. I have had a White Thanksgiving though. I love to go to New York 1st time was for New Year and it snowed on New Years Day. Since then I have been 3 times for Thanksgiving and I recall 1 was definitely snow as we didn’t know if we would be flying home. Not that it would have been a bad thing to be stuck in NY!! ⛄️❄️☃️
WHERE DO YOU USUALLY SPEND YOUR HOLIDAY?
I’ve been in my own home for 6 years it’s just me and the pooch, Tinky, my beautiful Staffy cross Jack Russell and we spend the day snuggled in blankets watching TV and eating what we want. I love it and generally go to my parents on Boxing Day joined by my brother, sister-in-law and niece and nephew.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS SONG?
As a huge Mariah Carey fan since my teens it has to be All I Want for Christmas it’s a classic and I just love Mariah.
DO YOU OPEN ANY PRESENTS ON CHRISTMAS EVE?
Nope! Not even on Christmas Day most are usually already at my parents and any I have been given including any Secret Santa’s I’ve done go with me to open Boxing Day.
WHAT HOLIDAY TRADITIONS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS YEAR?
I don’t really have any traditions like most other than no tree, no decorations and staying home on my own with the pooch on Christmas Day. I refuse to go anywhere now as when I lived with parents I was the designated driver and whilst everyone enjoyed a drink and fun I really didn’t enjoy myself. So now I have my own house I do what I want.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE HOLIDAY TREAT/FOOD/SWEET?
I wouldn’t say I have a favourite I just eat the same over the holiday period as I would any other day or week but as I am not a fan of Christmas dinner I usually have Southern Fried Chicken or Ribs for my Christmas dinner! 🍗🍖
BE HONEST, DO YOU LIKE GIVING OR RECEIVING GIFTS BETTER?
I like giving as I know I’m a difficult person to buy for! I have usually bought that things I want/need myself.
WHAT IS THE BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT YOU EVER RECEIVED?
Probably as a child I got presents at that age I really thought were the best but nothing really springs to mind.
WHAT IS YOUR DREAM PLACE TO VISIT FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON?
Well as per the early question about a White Christmas New York is my dream place to go I love how magical it is even for someone that really isn’t into Christmas I well keep going back as much as I can.
ARE YOU A PRO PRESENT WRAPPER OR DO YOU FAIL MISERABLY?
Fail miserably which is why my Mum wraps them all and yes that includes her own, Just to clarify my Mum is as awkward to buy for as I am so she usually gets her present, pays for it and then tells me what I’ve bought her and how much I owe. Usually this is done without my knowledge but it is very hard to find her something.
MOST MEMORABLE CHRISTMAS MEMORY?
Again like best present nothing really springs to mind.
WHAT MADE YOU REALISE THE TRUTH ABOUT SANTA?
Finding all of my brother and mine’s presents hidden on my parents wardrobe!
WHAT MAKES THE HOLIDAYS SPECIAL FOR YOU?
Time off work!! That is if I have any Annual Leave left which I usually don’t. As I am not a huge fan of Christmas I have been known to work it and could possibly be doing again this year. I work full and part time and my part time place of work is open 24 hours 365 days a year so who knows I could work again this year.
