I am very excited about this post today; a Christmassy tag was calling me. After reading THIS post that Justine from Brighton Dream, she tagged everyone, so here I am!
1. Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?
I love real Christmas trees, however I always have a synthetic one. I suppose it's a little family tradition that we would find sad to stop. I'm not sure that I prefer one or the other to be honest; I just love a fabulous Christmas tree!
2. You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick?
If I am at Costas, I would have a Gingerbread and Cream Latte; I have had too many already. Or I would have a hot chocolate from Caffè Nero with all of the trimmings. Sitting in a coffee shop at Christmastime is really one of the best things. With the busyness warming everything on the inside, a warm drink is a wish fulfilled.
3. What's your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?
I love all of the bright colours: red, green and yellow.
4. Giving or receiving?
I just love the giving aspect of Christmas. It excites me when I've really put thought into gifts and watching them (hopefully) present a genuine smile back to me. That's the best.
5. To mince pie or not to?
I spend my life thinking I'm a "no-no-no-no-ever-mince-pie-eater", but then I have one and I'm pleasantly surprised (especially if a bit of cream is involved) but then I may have one or a few more and I'm no longer a fan.
6. What's your traditional Sunday lunch?
My traditional Sunday lunch is a beautiful concoction of chicken, roast potatoes, mashed potato, carrots, broccoli and cauliflower cheese.
7. Christmas day fashion
Normally, I spend a good part of the morning in my pyjamas and then I change into a dress, some tights and probably a big cardigan to keep my Christmas cosy.
8. What's your favourite Christmas song?
This is like asking a mother to pick their favourite child! Well, not my mum but -*
My favourite Christmas songs (I can't pick one, I just can't) are White Christmas, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Merry Christmas Everybody and I Wish it Could be Christmas Everyday!
9. What's your favourite Christmas film?
Again, I can't choose. It has to be Elf, Love Actually and The Holiday.
10. Open presents before or after lunch?
My family and I spread our presents out over the whole day.
That was super fun and I tag you all (if you would like to do it)! Santa is coming guys!
Snowmen & Snowflakes,
The Girl in the Moonlight.

*Joking; my mum and my dad would choose my brother.
