The Christmas tag | Blogmas Day 16

I'm not usually a person for tags, but what is Blogmas without a cheesy Christmas-y tag to get in the festive spirit?

tbt to when I worked at a santa's grotto

1. What is your favourite Christmas film?
The Greatest Store in the World! They used to play it on CBBC in the run-up to Christmas, and it's become one of my traditions to watch it at least twice for every December.

2. Have you ever had a White Christmas?
I think I have a couple of times, but not in memory. It's usually a very icy day rather than a snowy day.

3. Where do you usually spend your holiday?
At home with my parents and brother. It's even more exciting this year because I've been away from home for three months!

4. What is your favorite Christmas song?
Anything traditional. Or anything Buble.

5. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
Yes! Christmas Eve is the time to open any presents from friends and my brother. We also give my parents their presents on Christmas Eve.

6. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Comet, Cupid, Vixen, Donner, Blitzen, Rudolph.

7. What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year?
Honestly, just spending time with everyone, eating lots of food and relaxing with my family and friends. I love seeing Christnas markets and doing Christmas shopping - and I always look forward to Christmas dinner.

8. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?

9. What is your all-time favorite holiday food/sweet treat?
My mum's homemade chocolate trifle. So excited for it!

10. Be honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
I love receiving presents because it's very nice seeing that someone has taken the time and money to give you something thoughtful. Over the years, though, I've become such a giver. I start my gift purchasing in September so that I have time to find gifts for everyone that have some thought behind them, then I spend far too long wrapping them to try and make them look presentable. I also really enjoy the looks on people's faces when they open something that they appreciate! Because of that, I prefer being the one giving gifts.

11. What is the best Christmas gift you’ve ever received?
I've been very spoiled by my parents over the years but nothing compares to the year I received my own wendy house for the garden. It was a huge, wooden structure and it was absolutely wonderful.

12. What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
If I had to spend a Christmas away from family, I'd spend it in Disneyland. Imagine Christmas dinner with Mickey Mouse?

13. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
I'm in the middle. I'm definitely not as good at my mum at wrapping, but I spend lots of time on my wrapping to make my presents look as decent as possible!

14. What made you realize the truth about Santa?
My parents told me when I was about eight. The other kids in my class were starting to break the news to everyone, so they told me before anyone else could. I think we all wish that we could have kept the illusion going for a few more years.

15. Do you make New Years resolutions? Do you stick to them?
Yes, I wrote a post about my resolutions here! I suck at sticking to them, but I try every year.

16. What makes the holidays special for you?
Having time to relax with family and friends. Everyone spends so much time working that it's nice for them to get a few days off to enjoy festivities. As I keep saying, it's all much more special this year because I'm living so far away from home. 

Let me know your Christmas traditions and what you're most looking forward to in the comments!
