my lovely friend Laura over at Musings of a tired mummy has tagged me in The Christmas Tag. I am so excited for this tag- really sad I know , but  I love Christmas! :) Okay so there are quite a few questions so let’s get answering.

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie?

Okay so my favourite film to watch with the girls is definitely Home Alone or the Grinch - they are two classics in our house . If it was me alone in bed after the girls had gone to sleep then I would snuggle up with a cup of tea and watch polar express or the Christmas carol, Jim Carey version :)

2. Have you ever had a white Christmas?

I can remember a white Christmas when I was younger , but we are talking a good 20 years ago! It’s been snowing recently so I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed for a white Christmas this year!

3. Where do you usually spend your holiday?

At home with Scott and the girls - honestly I wouldn’t want to be any where else other than home. We do visit my parents in the run up to a Christmas , they live in Great Yarmouth, but for Christmas Day it is at home .

4. What is your favourite Christmas song?

Oh god there are so many ! I love the Christmas band aid- all versions , Fairytale of New York and all I want for Christmas is you

5. Do you open presents on a Christmas Eve?

No we don’t open presents on Christmas Eve , we do celebrate Yule on the 21st of December , which is a pagan holiday and we each have a Yule present to open :)

6. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeers?

Oh no! I tried to do this question in my Christmas tag video on youtube - dasher dancer ,prancer vixen, comet Cupid Donna blitzen and Rudolph? Is that right? Sorry Santa! :(

7 .What holiday tradition are you looking forward to ?

I love our Christmas Eve buffet - we watch movies first then put Christmas songs on and have a huge spread and be merry, the girls absolutely love it!

8. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?

Very fake. I would love a real one but a few years ago my friend had told me that her real tree was riddled with beetles so I think I’ll stick with fake ha!

9. What is your favourite holiday treat?

Where do I start? ... savoury would be gherkins and twiglets , oh and the cheese board and crackers . Sweet would be the mince pies ,obviously , the ones from Sainsbury’s are so good! Oh and hot chocolates with candy canes and whipped cream, perfect for movie nights ,yum!

10. Be honest , do you like receiving or giving gifts best?

Being a Mum, seeing the girls open their presents and be so happy with what they have makes me happy , cliche? Probably but it’s true

11.what is the best Christmas Gift you have got ?

It has got to be last year when Scott got me the Estée Lauder set I wanted , He played it down for weeks pretending he had forgotten what it was called and I really thought he hadn’t got it ! I could not believe it when I opened it ,and my face on our video footage says it all , his a keeper

12.What is your dream place to visit for the holiday season?

Honestly, just home :)

13. Are you a pro wrapper or fail miserable?

I am the bees knees when it comes to wrapping the first 20 presents, then i am so fed up with it, they look a disaster afterwards.

14. Most memorable Christmas Morning?

I use to love opening our presents then getting dressed and all the family would go to my Grandads - they were the best!

15. What made you realise the truth about Santa?

What truth? I have no idea what you are talking about ..... ;)

16. What makes the holidays special for you?

Having children! - christmas would suck without my girlies!

That is me done! Now i tag Steph, Charlie and Kaiden :)
