The Christmas 2014 Tag


This is the last Christmas Tag that I am taking from last year. I hope you are enjoying the replies to the questions and please let me know in the comments below if you are taking part.

Its hard to believe its that time of year again. It literally just feels like we did this yesterday. I am super excited because I have discovered that Michael still believes in Santa or perhaps he is just humoring me. I always worry that this will be the year he tells me he doesn’t.

I have tagged ALL of you guys to do this  so don’t forget to do this tag and then comment below with a link so I can read it! I look forward to seeing your replies to the questions.

Have fun and Merry Christmas.

1. Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?

I prefer a real Christmas tree. Growing up we always had a real tree so that is all I really know. I love the smell of it when it comes in and throughout the Christmas holiday. Plus getting a real tree allows us to spend the afternoon with friends as we go and cut down our tree. The place we go to actually shows you how to cut the tree so that it will continue to grow which is amazing. Plus our trees don’t go into the garbage in the New Year our city has a pick up date and they mulch it.

2. You’re in a coffee shop, it’s December, what do you pick?

I would probably get a hot chocolate (depending on where I was) otherwise it would be the Starbucks Carmel Brulee latte or Chestnut Praline Latte. I love both of those drinks.

(this is our tree last year and I tend to decorate it the same way each year)

3. Whats your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?

For the past 15 years we have used multi colored lights on the tree but next year I am going for white ones because I would love to do my tree in white and red. I love that color scheme for a tree.

4. Giving or receiving?

I love giving presents at Christmas. I think everyone deserves to get a little something during the Christmas season no matter what it is. Its the thought that counts.

5. To mince pie or not to?

OMG I love mince pies. I make them every year. This was something I grew up with and to this day I continue to make them every year. Christmas isn’t complete without them.

6. What’s your traditional Sunday lunch?

I  would think you  are talking in reference to Christmas day. We don’t go to my in laws until dinner time so we tend to have a brunch which consist of eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, toast with fresh baked buns with orange juice and coffee and a bowl of fruit.

Christmas dinner is the whole works of turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, salad, potatoes and desserts.

7. Christmas day fashion?

We go to Christmas eve mass so we always dress up. Christmas day I always wear something new that I bought for the holiday. Not sure what it is this year as I haven’t really found what I am looking for but we always dress up Christmas day.

8. What’s your favourite Christmas song?

My all time favorite Christmas song is “Last Christmas” by Wham although I do like all versions of it. I love Christmas music and nothing beats the classic songs of the holiday season.

9. What’s your favourite Christmas film?

We have so many favorites from the classic cartoons to Miracle on 34th Street.

10. Open presents before or after lunch?

Christmas presents are opened before lunch. I have a child so there is no way he is going to wait much longer to open them up. When he was much younger we could literally do half before lunch and the rest after lunch but as he got older they are opened rather quickly.

I hope you enjoyed reading my replies and I look forward to yours.
