The Christmas Tag!

Source: Catsparella

I was kindly tagged by Grace to take part in this tag, thank you so much Grace! It has certainly helped me get in the mood for the festive holidays as I found myself listening to Christmas tunes on YouTube after writing this.
What is your favourite Christmas film?

My favourite Christmas film has to be The Snowman; it's on every year without fail thank goodness! I used to really like this when I was younger and I've grown up watching it each year since so it's a bit of a tradition for me. I also like Jack Frost even though it's actually pretty darn sad.

What is your favourite festive colour?

I did a post just yesterday all about silver which I simply adore however I'm not 100% sure how 'festive' it is therefore I'm going to pick gold just to be on the safe side. I like the white gold hue that you get off fairy lights, a bit like the picture above with the cute kitty cat.

Do you open your gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?

Morning! We have never been allowed to open presents the night before, despite how much we may have wanted to with them sitting under the tree.

What is your favourite winter fragrance?

I think my favourite would have to be Stella McCartney Stella as this is the deepest scent I own and definitely the most appropriate for this winter weather. 

What is your favourite Christmas scent?

My favourite scent would have to be the pine scent from choosing and picking up the Christmas tree from our local Forestry Commission, it is amazing! I also like coming downstairs in the morning as the room smells of fresh pine, it's really rather nice.

What is your favourite holiday drink?

I find myself coming across as rather unadventurous here, I don't drink alcohol really so I guess just a plain old hot chocolate.

Candy Canes or Gingerbread Men?

I don't really eat either to be honest I find Candy Canes pretty as decoration but rather quite boring to eat therefore if I had to pick it would be Gingerbread Men with a nice cup of tea.

What is your favourite Christmas song?

My favourite Christmas song is Stop the Cavalry. I've always liked this song, take a listen below if you haven't heard it before.




Have you ever made a snowman?

Of course, many of times I found myself in the back garden with my brother and sister making snowmen. If we have some snow this year I might make another, I might even let him borrow my scarf.

What is the most important thing to you about Christmas?

For me the most important thing about Christmas is being at home and seeing your family. Being away at University for the last three years meant I missed most of the build up to Christmas at home, this year it will be nice to fetch the tree with everyone and decorate it.


I tag everyone that reads this to take part, let me know if you do it as I would like to read all of your answers.

  6. I love this post! It's making me feel a lot more festive, which is hard sometimes considering I live in Australia where it's so warm. I love the smell of pine too :)

  8. Nothing wrong with a plain ol' hot chocolate - sometimes they are the best! It's always strange to read these Christmas Tag posts from someone who always celebrates the holiday season in summer :p I'm not all that Christmassy so I've never had a a tree but decorating it and having the smell of pine around the house sounds really nice :)
