The Christmas Tag!

This is my first Christmas in the blogging world and I'd thought I'd join in with the Christmas tag! Also, thank you to Carolyn (x) for tagging us!

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s? 
I usually watch the Christmas movies that are on t.v but I love watching Home Alone. I also love watching Bridget Jones and Harry Potter at this time of year. 

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
 Always Christmas morning. I always get up really, really early just to open my presents as I'm just so excited! I still feel like a little kid on Christmas morning!

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
There are so many! I think every Christmas new memories are made. Nothing beats Christmas when your little though. I think my favourite memories are from when I was young and when I still believed in Santa. Oh, and Christmas mornings were always the best too!

4. Favourite festive food?
Roast dinner! I love them sooo much. Mince pies, chocolate selction boxes, the chocolate tins and just eating until I feel sick! Haha. I never liked Christmas pudding though. I wish I did but I just never have!

5. Favourite Christmas gift?
I love getting new clothes to wear on Christmas day and I always love getting little bits of expensive make up at Christmas too. I really like it when my Mum and Dad surprise me with something I had no idea about too!

6. Favourite Christmas scent?
Well, ever since I got Versace perfumes for Christmas two years ago they have always reminded me of Christmas. I'm actually getting Crystal Noir by Versace this year.They all smell so rich and stay on all day too.

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Putting on a new pair of cosy pyjamas and slippers at night and just waiting for Christmas morning while watching all the festive programmes on T.V!

8. What tops your tree?
It used to be an Angel but now it's a sparkly silver star.

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
Hmm. This is a tough one! Probably a toy called Baby Wee Wee (don't ask)! But I probably ask for more expensive presents now that I can't afford. Like right now I really want a new guitar! A girl can dream... :)

10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
I absolutely love it when I first wake up and think ''oh my God! It's Christmas!'' but I love spending the day with my family and having a nice realxing time. I do also like going on a nice festive walk, all cosy in my hat and scarf and seeing all the Christmas lights at night.

I don't know about you but I'm feeling super festive right now! I can't wait for Christmas to come. I wish it would come quicker!

I tag anyone who would like to do these questions so if you would like to do this tag, please do! I'd love to see all your answers.

What's your favourite part of Christmas?
Love Leah and Rachel, x

  2. Christmas is better when you're younger! More exciting for sure. Although you do start to appreciate it for different reasons when you get older, such as getting to see family you don't always see during the rest of the year!

  24. omg I totally forgot I used to put an angel on top of the tree on Christmas when I was younger. I use a star now too. I wonder what happened lol. I've definitely seen home alone so many Christmases and roast meals are so good! All of my family likes lamb though except me which is annoying but I get stuffed with the pavlova mmmm. Good job with this Christmas tag!! :) xx

  30. Been really enjoying reading Xmas tags at the moment, as I've been feeling very festive. Home Alone is a classic. I used to watch it every single year growing up. And I actually managed to watch it the other day on TV. Now need to watch Elf and Muppets Xmas Carol. lol :D
