The Christmas Tag ๐ŸŽ„

Last week the lovely Sage nominated me to do The Christmas Tag! I had a look at my past posts and was pleased to see I hadn’t done this tag before. This year for Christmas I am keeping things relaxed but still wanted to do something a little festive.

1. What is your favorite Christmas movie?

Home Alone and Home Alone 2 always make me laugh and never get old! They are some of the only Christmas movies I can watch repeatedly without getting tired of them.

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

Christmas morning. Christmas Eve technically isn’t Christmas yet ๐Ÿ˜› When my brother and I were children we never opened presents early.

3. Do you have a favorite Christmas memory?

In 2002 we moved to the city I still live in now and the first Christmas we stayed with one of my aunts. I remember on Christmas Day itself everyone was awake before me and my brother and my mum were bringing in presents to me while I was still in bed. My brother and I got a Playstation One (which I still have) and another thing I got was a sparkly pink and lime green Barbie vespa. I absolutely loved Barbie!

4. Favorite festive food?

Pavlova for sure! I don’t know why it is associated with Christmas as they can still be bought throughout the year but most people tend to eat it at Christmas. A big slice of pavlova with whipped cream and strawberries and vanilla custard is one of the highlights of my day! Scorched Almonds from Nestle are another favourite; it is literally an almond covered in milk chocolate but so delicious.

5. Favourite Christmas gift?

I must have been about four years old and all year I’d been wanting a Barbie folding pretty house (as it was called) – basically a dollhouse for my Barbie dolls – and I was so excited when I got it. My dad gave it to me and I think that was the first Christmas after he left.

6. Favourite Christmas scent?

Pork crackling. We usually have a roast pork dinner with my mum’s homemade gravy and vegetables but the crackling is my favourite bit! Again, roast pork is available to buy year round but we don’t have it often.

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?

When I was a kid I always used to leave a drink and food out for Santa; either a couple of biscuits or a carrot. My brother and I would also stick name tags at opposite ends of the couch where our presents would go.

8. What tops your tree?

A glittery silver star.

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

As a kid I didn’t really ask for presents, I got what I was given and appreciated it. I don’t think there is anything I desperately wanted but never got.

10. Whatโ€™s the best part about Christmas for you?

The food. Almost every family has a big meal and has food they don’t usually eat throughout the year and buys treats especially for Christmas time. Also, I like not being on a time limit and being able to relax and sleep in and just plod through the day at an easy pace.


How do you usually celebrate Christmas? Do you have any special plans this year?

    Funny I was having the Christmas Eve/Christmas Day debate with my partner because he opened his gifts on the eve as a kid and I did on the day. Glad you’re on the day side! Haha!

    I loved waking up Christmas morning making a hot cocoa and opening presents with my family. Then we’d have a nice breakfast together.

    That’s so cool that you still have your PlayStation One! I loved Barbie as a kiddo, too. โ™ก The Scorched Almond dessert sounds amazing, I’ll have to look up what a pavlova is though! A roast pork dinner sounds soooo wonderful & I agree with your last answer 100%! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I so enjoyed reading your answers to this tag, Chanelle! Thanks for sharing!

    Home alone is such a great movie.
    And when we were much much younger, we opened gifts in the morning of, but when we moved back to the states, my cousins family would do it on Xmas eve, like right at midnight and I always thought it was the weirdest thing. So with my kiddo, we’re switching the tradition to mornings. No one wants to stay up that late lol.
