Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Daisy May's first Christmas!
I hope you are all having a lovely Christmas Day and stuffing your faces as you read this!  With a bit of luck, Santa was really good to you all, but that's not what Christmas is about really, well for me anyway.  Christmas to me, is about spending time with my loved ones.  This year we're having our Christmas dinner at about 7.30pm rather than our usual late afternoon dinner so while my Dad is hard at work in the kitchen, I thought I would take some time out to wish you a Merry Christmas and to do the Christmas Tag.  How ever you are spending Christmas, I hope you are enjoying it with the ones you love.  If you do this tag, please leave the link in the comments box below as I would love to read them all.

The Christmas Tag

1. Whats Your Favorite Holiday Movie?

I absolutely adore the film Jack Frost.  I watch it every year, several times in the run up to Christmas.  It makes me cry every time but I absolutely love it.  The soundtrack is awesome too; it features the song Landslide by Fleetwood Mac (written by Stevie Nicks) which reminds me of a troubled man I used to know who had faced many difficulties and sadness in his life.  He first introduced me to the song when I was 17 and I have loved it ever since.

2. Whats Your Favorite Christmas Color?

White and metallics like gold and silver.  I love white at Christmas time, from snow to decorations, we've even got snow on our Christmas tree!  Other than that, I love gold and silver, my tree decorations are gold and it just looks so classy and special.  The gifts that I wrapped up for friends and family were done with gold and black or silver and black foil wrapping paper again, because I think it looks classy and expensive. I love metallics at this time of year.  Ive never really been a lover of the typical Christmas red or green if I'm honest.

3. Do You Like To Stay in Your PJ's Or Dress Up For Christmas?

I stay in my PJs... usually ALL day.  I get new PJs on Christmas Day and I just like to put them on and snuggle up.  We don't have anyone come to our house on Christmas Day, its just me and my immediate family who I live with plus my puppy Daisy May, so I don't have anyone that I have to dress up for.  We stay in our comfy clothes, pig out and watch festive films!  I'm a PJ lover all year round but especially on Christmas Day!

4. If You Could Only Buy One Person a Present This Year Who Would It Be?

Daisy May.  Well, shes not a person, she's our puppy and its her first Christmas this year so how could I not buy her a gift?  We got her some lovely things; a Posh Paws Residence mat for her water and food bowl to go on, a few stockings with treats and toys in, some more treats and a cuddly Rudolph that smells of chocolate!  She's been spoiled rotten today, lots of people got her gifts, the little cutie!

5. Do You Open Your Presents Christmas Eve Or Christmas Morning?

I keep them all for Christmas morning and open them with my family.  I may be 22 but I still do the whole going to bed early so that Santa comes and sneaking downstairs on the morning saying 'has HE been?'

6. Have You Ever Built a Ginger Bread House?

Nope, Ive never even bought one let alone built one.  Id like to, although knowing my luck the sides would probably collapse in on it.

7. What Do You Like To Do On Your Christmas Break?

Over Christmas I love to meet up with my friends, go for drinks and dinner, and meet up with family.

8. Any Christmas Wishes?

9. Favorite Christmas Smell?

Turkey!  My dad always puts our turkey in the oven on Christmas eve and it just smells delicious.

10. Favorite Christmas Meal Or Treat?

I adore my dads Christmas dinner, mainly because he makes this gravy that only my Nana used to make.  Its lovely and thick and totally different to the usual Bisto that I knock up on a Sunday afternoon.  Its exactly the same gravy my late Nana used to make on all of her dinners and its just beautiful.  We only have it once a year and it makes me feel like shes still with us.


Daisy May is so tired waiting for me to finish this!
I tag: anyone else who would like to do this.




I never really wish for any gifts, I always just wish for a happy Christmas
