Jolly Christmas Tag

I have been tagged by the lovely Whitney at Sugar Me Sweet to do her Christmas tag. Don't forget to head over to Whitney's blog and see her original post.

1. What's your favourite Christmas song?

Well it has to be The Pogues & Kirsty MacColl 'Fairytale of New York.' No matter where I am when this comes on, I turn it up and sing at the top of my lungs!

2. What is your favourite holiday drink?

I'll have to be traditional and say Mulled Wine, there is nothing better than putting some of this on the stove and filling the house with the smell of it. Having said that I am really looking forward to trying the Christmas drinks at Costa!!!

3. What is your favourite Christmas treat?

For us Christmas is all about spending time together and enjoying ourselves with lots of lovely food and drinks so we have lots of treats at Christmas, but I have to say you can't beat a hot mince pie.

4. What is on the top of your Christmas list this year?

If you saw my Christmas Wish List post you will have seen a gorgeous coat from River Island that I am desperate to purchase. I popped into River Island a couple of weeks ago to grab one and I couldn't find it anywhere, fingers crossed Santa can find one!

5. Are you doing anything extra special this Christmas?

If you read my blog you will have seen Dan and I have moved in with my parents so this year I'll be back at home over the Christmas holidays. It will be really weird waking up with everyone....I haven't done that since I moved out 5 years ago! The other great thing is that Dan will be off for Christmas Eve which I am so excited about as we have never both been off. I would love to go to a panto on Christmas Eve so as we are both off this seems like the perfect year.

6. What is your favourite Christmas carol?

When I was about 12 I used to be in our village church choir and Christmas used to be my favourite. The church would be filled with candles and we would be able to sing Christmas Carols, it was great. My favourite has to be 'O Holy Night' I love that carol it's beautiful. Now I know this isn't the traditional way it's sung but I love Mariah Carey's Christmas album!!!!

7. What is your favourite Christmas scent?

Last year we had two candles burning around the Christmas time, both Yankee Candle's, one was 'Apple Wreath' and the other was 'Christmas Eve' which both smelt amazing! When we popped into the Yankee Candle shop the other week we picked up some more 'Christmas Eve' candles to burn again this year, so I'll have to go with that one!

8. Do you have a stocking stuffer that makes it's way back into stockings year after year?

Every year my Mum and Dad do a stocking for me and my sister and right at the bottom of our stockings is an orange and a shiny penny!

9. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?

Every since I can remember we have always gone to Alice Holt to get our tree. It's a tradition that the whole family go together. We go for a walk, have a minced pie and mulled wine and then pick up the tree after. They have all the trees out so you can see what they look like....which means we are there for ages picking just the right one!!!!

10. Are you a good gift wrapper?

I'd say yes. Both Dan and I have quite big families so there is always lots of wrapping to do, so I plan my wrapping paper well in advance and set aside a day to get it all done. I always sit down with a good Christmas film on and get cracking......then after a couple of hours I start to lose my patience and they slowly look a mess!!

A big thank you to Whitney for tagging me. Don't forget to check her out and let me know if you do this tag with a link in the comments below.
