BLOGMAS Day 18- Christmas Tag

We have been reading lots of Blogmas posts this month and we keep coming across the ‘Christmas Tag’ and decided we had to take part!

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS FILMS?
Annie- One of my favourite Christmas films is called ‘The Greatest Store in the World’. It’s not a very well-known film but we used to watch it all the time when we were younger!
Rachel- The Holiday has to be one of the best Christmas films, however if we can pick 2 then the other will be Love Actually

HAVE YOU EVER HAD A WHITE CHRISTMAS?
Both: I believe the year we were born it was a white Christmas! That’s the only white Christmas we have had but unfortunately we don’t remember it!!

WHERE DO YOU USUALLY SPEND YOUR HOLIDAY?
Annie: At home with my immediate family, we sometimes see some friends at the pub as well.
Rachel: At home with my immediate family

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS SONG?
Annie: Last Christmas by Wham- I love it!
Rachel: I love Justin Beibers Christ,as album – sorry not sorry!

DO YOU OPEN ANY PRESENTS ON CHRISTMAS EVE?
Annie: No we save them all for Christmas day
Rachel: We open one present on Christmas eve and its always pj’s – so nice to have a new pair of pjs for Christmas Eve/Day

CAN YOU NAME ALL OF SANTA’S REINDEER?
Annie: Prancer, Dancer, Blitzen, Rudolph…. I think I’ll give up there
Rachel: not even going to try! I only remember, Donna and Blitzen

WHAT HOLIDAY TRADITIONS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR MOST THIS YEAR?
Annie: On Boxing Day we all go to a local pub and watch my dad Morris dance then it’s back to our house for cold turkey and party games.
Rachel: This year is a different one for me as I am making the most of the many bank holidays and going travelling around SE Asia for 3 weeks. I will be waking up on Christmas Day in Bangok in a 22 bed dorm in a hostel before the adventure begins. However my favourite holiday tradition is going to a Carol concert with my family, it gets you into the Christmas spirit.

IS YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE REAL OR FAKE?
Both: we both have real trees!! Real trees smell so good and remind us of Christmas.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE HOLIDAY FOOD / SWEET OF ALL TIME?
Annie: Chocolate Orange! I cannot get enough of them especially when they are always on special offer this time of year. I didn’t get one in my stocking last year and I was gutted!
Rachel: every year for Christmas me and my mum make homemade fudge, I would say that is my ultimate sweet treat of all time at Christmas.

BE HONEST: DO YOU LIKE RECEIVING OR GIVING GIFTS BETTER?
Annie: I love giving presents so much more than receiving them. You cannot beat seeing someone’s reaction when they open your presents.
Rachel: 100% giving, I am like the child in the old John Lewis Christmas advert. I absolutely love choosing presents for my family and seeing their reaction when they open them!

WHAT WOULD BE YOUR DREAM PLACE TO VISIT FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON?
Annie: I would love to visit America, in films Christmas in America always seems so magical!
Rachel: somewhere hot – not really fussed where to be honest. Or would love to visit Disneyland Florida for Christmas.

ARE YOU A PRO PRESENT WRAPPER OR A PRO FAILURE?
Annie: I used to be a pro failure, until I worked at Fortnum and Masons once Christmas in the gift wrap department.  I wouldn’t say I massively enjoy wrapping presents but I still like to make them look pretty!
Rachel: LOVE wrapping presents and making them look pretty, so would say I am a pro wrapper. I also wrap up for my family too as they hate wrapping!

WHAT MADE YOU REALISE THE TRUTH ABOUT SANTA?
Annie: I actually cannot remember I believed Santa for so many years, but then being the nosy child I was I spotted one of my presents hidden away- I was gutted.
Rachel: I was such a scaredy child so my parents had to tell me he wasn’t real as I wouldn’t sleep. I didn’t like the thought of  a stranger entering the house and wouldn’t sleep on Christmas Eve. My parents had to tell me at a VERY young age that Santa wasn’t real!

DO YOU MAKE NEW YEARS RESOLUTION, AND DO YOU STICK TO IT?
Annie: One year I made a resolution to go to the gym twice a week- it’s safe to say I stuck to it as I definitely go more than twice a week now days.
Rachel: One year I made a resolution to have my nails painted with nail varnish for everyday of the year, so weird I know! However I stuck to it!
