Blogmas Day 17 – The Christmas Tag

I saw this Christmas Tag on Emma’s blog (go check it out btw, it’s one of my faves!) and thought this is perfect for todays post. Tonight is my last night at Trivia for the year…booooooo 🙁 and I didn’t want to have to worry about getting home to get photos done, edited and a blog post written before getting into a bit of cider drinking, schnitty eating fun at trivia tonight.

Feel free to do this tag as well, on your blog or in the comments! Let’s get festive!

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?

Without a doubt it’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, I watch this every year without fail before Christmas Day, generally on Christmas Eve when I go to bed or while wrapping presents.

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?

Christmas morning. I always have to wait for my dad to get up and have his coffee before we open presents, I don’t mind this so much now but when I was a kid it was agony lol.

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?

Every year putting out some carrots for the Reindeer and a Beer and some biscuits for Santa. It was always exciting waking up in the morning to find the crumbs 🙂

4. Favourite festive food?

Everything! Christmas Ham is always amazing, even though you get tired of having Ham on everything 3 days later. Also, my great grandmothers recipe for Chocolate Rum Balls is the absolute best and I devour approximately 46 of these every year.

5. Favourite Christmas gift?

I would say it was my Macbook Pro a few years ago, still going strong to this day and I pretty much squealed when I opened it. That was also a memorable Christmas because I had to go to Emergency at the hospital because I had one of those two finger rings stuck on my fingers and it had to be removed…not a great morning.

6. Favourite Christmas scent?

Gingerbread, Cinnamon, Spiced Orange – anything spicy and warm (even though I live in a summer climate this time of year).

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?

Every Christmas Eve we have a get together with my dads side of the family, being Italian’s it is huge! We generally have a lot of food and very full bellys afterwards. We used to wait until midnight to open the presents but now we tend to do it a bit earlier since people have a fair way to travel. It’s a great time to catch up with everyone 🙂
8. What tops your tree?

A generic star I picked up from Target, I posted a blog post with my Christmas Decorations earlier this month and as I mentioned in there we only have a small LED tree. One day when we have more space I’ll be able to think of something cool. One of my friends told me about this awesome Groot tree topper, I would love that!

9. As a kid, what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?

I don’t actually remember asking for anything like that, I will have to ask my mum.
10. What’s the best part about Christmas for you?

I love Christmas, the festive feeling when you see decorations about, Starbucks Christmas Drinks, Picking my present wrapping theme for the year… and wrapping presents, Christmas songs (check out my blog post about what i’m listening to here). So many things!
