Tenth | The Christmas Tag!

So I have had a little bit of bad news today, my SD card actually broke on me, so I can't take any pictures on my camera, hopefully tomorrow I am going to buy one in the morning so I can get the last two posts of my countdown done! I shall have my fingers crossed as I want them to be a good last two posts! So instead of an outfit post today then I decided to do the Christmas Tag (found from Lucy Cole's blog, credit to her)!

What time of the year do you start your Christmas shopping?
Normally November time, I like to do my shopping online to start with as you always find the things that you have in mind exactly and can normally get some pretty good deals. Then closer to Christmas I will brave the shops to find little bits and bobs for everyone.

Do you have any festive recipes for food or drink you limit solely to the Christmas season to share?
I honestly don't normally like all the foods at Christmas like mince pies and Christmas pudding, but on Christmas day night I have heard my family mention we are having some snowball drinks, which is a mixture of advocaat and lemonade, so who knows if it will be good?

Tell me how Christmas goes in your home
Well we wake up at a reasonable time, then all go downstairs to find the pressies under the tree, I then hand them out so we all have one each and we get opening them until they are all gone. We then eat some chocolate and watch some music on tv whilst having a chat. Then we get preparing for a Christmas dinner. Then at night we normally have some family over! Exciting!

Do you have any Christmas traditions?
No not really, just the normal ones I guess with presents and a big dinner! mmm!

Do you have a favourite festive coffee?
I don't like coffee, but I am always after a hot chocolate!

Do you have a favourite Christmas song?
I have to say its got to be either Wham - Last Christmas, or Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas (typical)

What do you do on Christmas eve?
Something different every year, last year we sat and played some card games and this year we are going round to see family, have a meal and play some games.

What's your Christmas wrapping strategy? Do you have one?
My Christmas wrapping always ends up really messy! I try really hard and it never seems to look any good!

What's your dream gift this year?
A PS4 which I already know that I have, cheeky!

Describe your Christmas tree. How tall? Real or artifical? How is it decorated?
Fake, Small, White Snowflake lights and lots of little random baubles collected over the years, it's so cute.

Do you decorate just the Christmas tree or other areas of your house e.g. windows, banisters?
Yes the tree, the windows, the door outside, picture frames and around the tv, all over the place really.

What do you wear to Christmas parties and what do you wear on Christmas day?
On Christmas morning I stay in my pjs for a long long time, until I manage to go upstairs and I normally just wear a very casual outfit, I might put a bit more of something fancy one. For a Christmas party, I would defiantly go for a sparkly dress of some sort! You can't go wrong with that!
