The Christmas Tag 2014


I've seen these questions around on other blogs and so I decided to give them a go.

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
This is actually a very difficult question for me because I watch tons of Christmas movies every year and it's a bit difficult to choose one. Most of the movies I watch are romantic comedies (coz I'm that kinda gal) so if I had to mention a few that I really liked, I would choose the following;  

Christmas in Boston (Instant Message)

 Oh Christmas Tree,

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Love Actually

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas morning. I wouldn't want to open any of my presents before Christmas. I just think it will ruin the surprise. However, I wouldn't want to wait till after Christmas lunch to open them though. So definitely in the morning.

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
I don't have a very specific Christmas memory but I remember many Christmases when I was younger (back in Cameroon) when my siblings and I would wake up on Christmas morning, go out of the house and scream "Merry Christmas everyone" at the top of our voices so our neighbours would wake up :D I also really loved the general Christmas atmosphere back home.

4. Favourite festive food?
I'm not really into Turkey but I really do love the African food we have on Christmas day.

5. Favourite Christmas gift?
Hmm thinking about all the Christmas presents I've ever had, I don't think I can pick a favourite.
6. Favourite Christmas scent?
I don't really have a specific Christmas scent but I love the smell of food at Christmas. Any kind of food.
7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
My siblings and I love watching Christmas cartoons on Christmas eve. We also cook some of the food so I usually help my mum out in the kitchen. I think doing things together helps to keep the whole excitement going.
8. What tops your tree?
To be honest, we haven't really bothered much about topping the Christmas trees.


We did have a star this year but for some reason, it didn't fit so we haven't bothered really.

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
I never asked for any extravagant gifts believe it or not. I literally hardly ever asked for anything. I'm one of those people that literally don't know what they want even when you ask.
10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
Ah I really love the days time leading up to Christmas. I love the lights, the carols, the general atmosphere. Most importantly I love spending time with my family, the singing, dancing, all the food and just generally being thankful and celebrating the true meaning of Christmas.


Those are all the questions guys but before leaving you guys, I wanted to share the fifth song on my Christmas playlist.
Oh Holy Night- Celtic Woman



Thanks for reading.
1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
Ah, there's SO many, I love National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, Home Alone, Elf, The Santa Clause etc. but one that I watch every year, without fail is The Snowman on Christmas eve. I absolutely adored the Snowman and The Snow dog. My dad bought me the little plushie last year, so cute.

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Always on Christmas morning (usually whilst scoffing Christmas chocolate) We usually get new Christmas Pyjamas on Christmas Eve, but we save the present opening for Christmas day morning.
3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
My parents always used to go all out at Christmas. We'd come downstairs to presents, balloons, reindeer prints made out of glitter, red and white tape for the north pole, it was so magical as kids! 
4. favourite festive food?
Aside from chocolate...Roast potatoes during Christmas dinner, so many roast potatoes.

5. Favourite Christmas gift ?
I can't remember how old I was, but it was the year of the Furby. I'm sure there were small riots amongst the shelves in Toys R us. My parents pretended they couldn't get me one but then it was hidden behind the sofa! (anyone else hide theirs in the wardrobe at night, they were so creepy!)

6. Favourite Christmas scent?
Christmas dinner cooking, mmm or the smell of the Christmas tree! 
7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Just that it's family time, we'll usually all have wine, the fire on, lots of yummy food and sit down in our new pyjamas to watch Christmas films.

8. What tops your tree?
For years and years it was a little gold vintage angel, my dad always lifted me up to put it on the tree, when I was a kid... at the very end of decorating everything. She was always kind of wonky and worn looking, but it was tradition. These days it's a big gold glittery star.

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
Not in an ungrateful way. I mean, I used to circle half of the Argos catalogue!But every year I would ask for a dog, without fail. One year my parents brought it a huge box, with holes in and something was moving. I was certain it was a puppy...it was a rabbit ha ha Still one of the best pets I've ever had though. Then last year, I finally bought myself my own Christmas puppy :) Oscar on the 21sr of December. He was certainly worth the wait.

10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
Spending time with my loves ones, friends and family, after eating Christmas dinner, watching Only fools and Horses episodes that we've seen ten times already. Watching the snow fall and generally having a lovely time.
