Fairytale of New York

The Christmas Tag

I saw this Christmas Tag over on Hannah Louise’s blog Paint Me a Smile and thought I’d get into the spirit of the season and take part too.

What is your favourite Christmas Movie?
The Muppet Christmas Carol! I haven’t watched it this year (yet) but I do love it. I like the story and how Michael Caine gives it his all even though he’s acting with puppets, the songs are great too and Gonzo and Rizzo are my favourite Muppet’s so I like how it’s them two telling the story.

What is your Favourite Christmas Song?
Fairytale of New York by the Pogues and Kirsty McColl. I just love this song.

Do You Open Presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?
Christmas morning. We always open presents in our PJ’s before breakfast, it’s really chill and nice.

What is your Favourite Christmas Scent?
I don’t know if I really have a favourite Christmas scent. While I don’t like drinking it, I do like the smell of Mulled Wine.

What tops your tree?
We’ve got Father Christmas on the top of our tree! It sounds weird, but he’s got a big beard and the Christmas lights shine through it.

Is your tree real or fake?
It’s fake. We’ve had a fake trees all my life. Our current fake tree is about 16 years old so it’s doing pretty well.  (more…)

My Favourite Christmas Things

Now in my family we don’t have many traditions or anything when it comes to Christmas. This is probably because my family is ridiculously small – if we don’t have friends round for Christmas dinner it’s just me, my mum and my gran. But there are something’s I love about Christmas even if it’s a small affair.

Putting up the Christmas tree
This has always been “my job” at Christmas. Even when I was little I’d always decorate the tree. When I was at Uni, my mum would do it because I’d only get home a few days before Christmas but the last few years I’ve been home I’ve done it and putting together the tree (we have a fake one) and decorating it is what makes me feel all Christmasy.

Favourite Christmas Film
We don’t have any Christmas films we have to watch each Christmas but the one that I will stop and watch if or rather when it’s on TV is The Muppet Christmas Carol. Michael Caine is great in it, Rizzo the rat is my absolute favourite and the songs are so catchy.
