Just In Time For Christmas

It appears I've had a bit of a blogging break over most of this festive period (life happens), but it's not quite over yet so I think there's just time to squeeze in a little christmassy post before its all over. I was tagged by the lovely Making Life A Camera blog (Thank you) to do the Christmas tag and even though I've done this so many times (I think this is the third time :) I still love doing it every year. I've loved reading everyone's different versions this year, and whilst I'm doing the one I was tagged in, I've added a few questions I liked from others to make it my own. So here is my 2015 version of the Christmas tag.

Favourite Christmas movie/s? 
Hands down Love Actually. Anyone who knows me knows I am OBSESSED with this movie. I watch it all year round, and basically every other day over the festive period, and I'm willing to have the argument with anyone who says it's not brilliant. Other honourable mentions include childhood favourites of The Polar Express and The Snowman as well as Elf and It's A Wonderful Life. I like Christmas movies.

Favourite Christmas Song/s?
ALL OF THEM. The music is one of my favourite parts of this season, and my all time favourites are Do They Know Its Christmas, Merry Christmas Everyone and All I Want For Christmas Is You.

Real tree or fake tree?
I would love a real one, but we always have fake one due to convenience. 

Giving presents or receiving them?
I would be lying if I said I didn't like getting gifts, but I do think there is nothing better than finding something you thinks perfect for someone and watching them open it and love it.  

Do you open your presents Christmas morning or evening?
Morning. Stockings before breakfast and then eat, get dressed and open presents under the tree. The evening in my house is reserved for sleeping and watching Christmas TV. 

What tops your tree?
Currently a ribbon bow. It doesn't sound that festive, and to be honest it isn't, but it looks pretty good.  It is sparkly ribbon. We aren't super boring.

Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?
Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, Rudolph. BOOM. Ten points to Gryffindor. 

What would be your dream place to visit at Christmas?
It's got to be in the snowy mountains like the Alps or somewhere. I've never had a white Christmas and I've always wanted one; it just think it would be so beautiful and so fun. I was about to write I'd love to ski as well but I just remember the previous time I've tried skiing (admittedly on a dry slope),  I ended up falling of the lift and doing the splits and there was much pain. So maybe not that bit but definitely a cold, snowy Christmas.

Handmade Christmas cards or bought?
I wish I had time to make homemade ones but realistically bought ones. One year I do hope to get my craft hat on though!

Do you have any Christmas traditions?
My family and I always go into central London for an evening near Christmas and just wander looking at as many lights as possible. We also always watch Carols from Kings on Christmas Eve by the fire with snacks and its very cosy and festive. 

Merry Christmas
