Lifestyle: The Christmas Tag

Merry Christmas Eve, what better way to celebrate than with "The Christmas Tag".

What's Your Favourite Christmas Movie?
I couldn't possibly whittle it down to just one, I have way too many favourites! So here are my top four: Love Actually, The Holiday, Home Alone & Elf. They are all Christmas classics and are amazing!

What's Your Favourite Christmas Colour?
We are very traditional in our house so there's lots of red, gold & cream. Classic rather than quirky. Though I do love a good multi-coloured glitter for my nails. Why in every post do I always bring it back to nail polish? haha I think I need help!

Do You Open Your Present On Christmas Eve Or Christmas Morning?
Always Christmas morning. I don't think it would feel the same on any other day.

What's Your Favourite Christmas Smell?
Oddly enough coffee, my mum makes a Bavarian coffee cake every year and the smell just takes me back. Though cinnamon is my ultimate "Christmas" scent, ahhh.

Receiving Or Giving?
If you had asked me a few years ago the answer would have probably been a little different, but now I'm older I can't think of anything nicer than buying gifts for other people. Giving definitely gives me so much more joy, especially if they love the gift.

Favourite Christmas Song?
I'm definitely old school when it comes to Christmas songs, I still love to listen to all the songs from when I was younger, you can't beat a bit of cheesy Wham. Though a bit of Buble is mandatory of course haha.

Favourite Christmas Drink?
Hot chocolate with the full works, whipped cream & mini marshmallows in the obligatory festive mug. Yum! As you can see I have quite a few to choose from.

Candy Can Or Gingerbread Man?
I'm sad to say I don't like either, I'm not a fan of mint or ginger so I would have to say umm, celebrations, it's the only time of the year I have them so I definitely indulge.

What's The Most Important Thing About The Holidays?
Family! Spending time with family and friends. It's of the few times when everyone's in the same place, in great moods and it just feels so special. I have so many lovely memories, if I could bottle that feeling, I totally would!

I hope you enjoyed this tag, I love reading about different family's traditions and how they celebrate, so if you do this tag please leave the link below so I can have a read.

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas!
XOXO Claire
