The Christmas Tag #CountdownToChristmas

Hey everyone :) It's December 1st which means we can officially start celebrating Christmas! I am going to be taking part in a blog series called #CountdownToChristmas so you will see lots of Christmas related posts on my blog over the next four weeks. #CountdownToChristmas is a blog series created by Megan (Beautiful Youand Emily (beautybyemily). They have decided to host a blog series that runs from the 1st of December up until Boxing Day. It involves publishing two blog posts a week on Monday and Friday about set topics, these range from fashion to lifestyle to beauty posts. 

The first in the series is this Christmas Tag - I can't wait to read everyones! I also tag all other blogger to take part in this, I love reading all about Christmas :)

1.  What’s your favourite holiday movie?

This is quite a hard question as there are so many I love! I’d have to say my favourite is probably Elf.  This is such a funny, light hearted and feel good film which is just perfect for Christmas. I also love Will Ferrell he plays the character so well.

2. What are your favourite Christmas colours?

I’m quite traditional when it comes to Christmas colours, with the classic green and red being my favourite, these colours remind me of Christmas. However when it comes to Christmas party outfits and nails etc, I love a bit of glitz and glitter so silver and gold are also favourites.

3. Do you like to stay in your PJs or dress up for Christmas?

Definitely dress up. I love any excuse to put a fancy outfit on and do my makeup and Christmas is special so deserves a real effort being made. We also take a lot of photos at Christmas so I prefer to be dressed up.

4. If you could only buy one person a present this year who would it be? 

My parents, (I know this is two people but is basically counts as one!) They do so much for me every year and I am so grateful. I love buying presents for them and showing my appreciation. This year I have bought them an IPod which they have wanted for a while, I can’t wait to see their reaction! They aren’t the best with technology and wouldn’t know where to start with choosing one for themselves, they are going to need some serious lessons!

5. Do you open your presents Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?

Although it can be very hard to resist I always open my presents on Christmas day and it is definitely worth the wait! I like to spread them out over the day and open some in the morning and some in the afternoon.

6. Have you ever built a Ginger Bread House?

I am so excited that this is one of the questions as it gives me an excuse to show off my Ginger Bread House! (See pictures below). Last year my boyfriend and I made one and it pretty much took a whole day. It was so much fun to make, and took a while to put it together but we were so proud of the results. I want to make another one this year but am not sure if I’m going to have time.

7. What do you like to do during your Christmas holidays?

I like to: Spend lots of time with friends and family
Go Christmas shopping
Go to Winter Wonderland
Watch lots of Christmas films
Decorate the house and Christmas tree
Go out for New Years Eve
Listen to lots of Christmas songs
Wear Christmas jumpers

8. Any Christmas Wishes?

I wish that all my wonderful family and friends have amazing Christmas’s and get everything they want. 2014 has been a good year for me overall, so I also wish that 2015 is just as good if not better!

9. Favourite Christmas smell?

My favourite Christmas smell has to be the smell of a real Christmas tree, we have one every year and it just brings such a fresh Christmas smell to the house.

10. Favourite Christmas meal or treat?

My favourite Christmas meal without a doubt is a Christmas dinner – turkey with all the trimmings, I try to have as many of these as I can over the Christmas season! Some favourite Christmas treats include lots of hot chocolates, advert calendar chocolates and other Christmas chocolates (Christmas is definitely good justification to eat lots of chocolate!)

Has anyone else taken part in a Christmas tag? I'd love to see! :)
