Standard Questions:
1.      When do you start thinking about Christmas?
If I am honest Christmas is in the back of my mind all year round but I properly start to focus on it after bonfire night is over. One of the perks of living in a student house is you get to put your tree up as early as you like without any parents nagging at you that it’s too early!
2.      What has been your most memorable Christmas present to date (good or bad!)?
For me my most memorable Christmas present was a lego Disney set I got when I was about 10, it’s memorable because I was so close to finishing it when my puppy, at the time, decided to eat the last piece I needed – I wanted to finish the building but not so much that I was willing to sieve through puppy poop!
3.      Do you have any Christmas traditions?
My parents are divorced so I spend Christmas at each of their houses on alternating years. This means that I basically have 2 sets of traditions! At mums house we get a set of PJs on Christmas eve that we wear all day on Christmas whereas at dads the oldest member of the family reads the night before Christmas on Christmas eve and then on Christmas day every one has to be showered and dressed by lunch time.
4.      Which Christmas film is the greatest of them all?
The Grinch has always been a classic for me! I watch it on the first of December each year to start my countdown to the big day.
5.      You have an empty seat at your table on Christmas Day – who do you invite and why? Can be absolutely anyone!
Either the main man Santa himself or I would love to have my boyfriend over for Christmas because we haven’t been able to do that yet!
6.      Where in your house does your Christmas Tree go each year?
Again it depends on the house! At my mums house it is in the kitchen whereas at dads house it is in the lounge. Plus I always have a little one in my room that I hang Disney decorations on I got when I was a child.
7.      Name the top 3 songs on your Christmas Party Playlist
Anything by Micheal Buble has to be on there – my favourite is probably Holly Kolly Christmas. Then the Fairytale of New York is a classic and Merry Xmas Everybody simply because of the point when “IT’S CHIRSTMAS” is shouted!
8.      Who is the hardest person you’ve ever had to buy a Christmas present for?
Ummmm this is hard but probably my brothers. I love them both to pieces but I really wish I had a sister to buy presents for – so much easier!
9.      When do you eat your Christmas dinner, and what all is on your menu?
At both of my parents houses we eat it at lunch time and we have the whole shebang – turkey, stuffing, sprouts (not that I eat any). My favourite part of Christmas dinner though has to be the pigs in blankets with some cranberry sauce, I am getting hungry just thinking about it!
10.  What’s your favourite Christmas related quote?
He puzzled and puzzled till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. Maybe Christmas, he thought... doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps... means a little bit more!”
11.  Are you a wrapping paper person, or boxes and bags? Or are you a mix?
Wrapping presents is one of my favourite parts of Christmas, I find it so relaxing! I like to put on a Christmas film and grab a hot chocolate (or a mulled wine if I’m feeling spicy) the wrap to my hearts content.
12.  What makes Christmas so special to you?
I think what makes Christmas so special to me is the build up towards the big day. I love all the activities you get up to with family and friends like ice skating and shopping. All the streets get lit up and everyone seems to be in a better mood. I like how for the whole month of December everything seems magical and happy all because of one day. Then when the 25th rolls around you get to spend it with the ones you love.

Your Questions:
1.      What has been your favourite present you have ever gifted to someone else?
2.      What is your favourite festive drink?

Take a break, you’ve earned it! Grab a gingerbread flavoured hot chocolate and a mince pie!
