I have been really getting into the Christmas spirit this year – quite a bit more than usual!

I absolutely love the build up to Christmas, where Christmas songs are playing in the shops, the streets are decorated and lots of people are busy doing their Christmas shopping.

I have recently discovered *this* awesome blog – CasuallyAwkward, and after reading The Christmas Tag on there, I thought I would give it a go myself!

1. What is your favourite Christmas song?

There are some Christmas songs which I absolutely love and could listen to all year round (and other which I really cannot stand and don’t enjoy listening to at any time of the year!).  My favourite Christmas songs are ‘Driving Home For Christmas’ and ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’.

2. What is your favourite festive drink? 

Although I don’t enjoy the typical festive drinks, such as Mulled Wine (eurgh), I do love hot wintery drinks, such as Salted Caramel Lattes and White Hot Chocolate – in other words I love visiting places like Costa and Starbucks at this time of year!

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas film?

I have some absolute favourite Christmas films which I love watching at any time of year.  One of them being ‘Love Actually’ (Colin Firth & Hugh Grant in ONE FILM? Yes please!).  I also remember loving ‘How The Grinch Stole Christmas’ when I was younger!  Reading Christmassy books at this time of year is another thing I really enjoy.

4. What is at the top of your Christmas Wish List this year?

I have always found this question so difficult to answer, as although I can think of a million things I would love during the year, I can almost never think of anything I would like at Christmas!  However, new makeup will always be appreciated!  I also love little gifts that really mean something special from the person giving them to you, such as a present which reminds me of an inside joke we have, etc. (if that makes any sense?)

5. What is your favourite festive makeup or nail art look?

GOLD!  I love wearing gold eyeshadow during this time of year!  As for my nails, I love gold, dark red, navy blue and lots of sparkles at Christmas!

6. What is your favourite outfit at Christmas time? (LBD? Christmas jumper? Pjs?)

I love hanging around in my onesie on Christmas day!  Although I have always wanted a Christmas jumper, I never end up buying one just because I think I would much rather spend my money on a jumper I could wear more often – being a student ain’t easy (I do regret doing this though!)

7. Would you rather play out in the snow or enjoy it inside with the fire and a cuppa?

Definitely a bit of both!  Going out in the snow, then going back inside with the fire and a cuppa is just lovely.

8. Wrapping presents – love or loathe?

I *LOVE* everything about wrapping presents!  From choosing which wrapping paper to use for which presents, to sticking on the last bit of tape and a name tag, then placing the presents under the Christmas tree – love love love!

9. What is your favourite Christmassy food?

I’m not a fan of cinnamon, ginger and that sort of Christmassy food.  However, I do love a roast turkey dinner – yummy!

10. What is your favourite thing about Christmas?

My favourite thing has got to be the build up to Christmas.  I like the fact that family and friends think about each other whilst buying their gifts, and also get to spend more time together.  Christmas parties are fun and a great excuse to dress up in sparkly (ish) outfits!  I also love the decorations and Christmas songs playing on the radio and in shops.  Finally, I really enjoy Christmas day – spending time together with the people you love and enjoying (or atleast trying to enjoy- hehe!) each other’s company.

I hope you enjoyed reading The Christmas Tag and would like to tag anyone reading this to have a go at it!  Please leave your links down below if you are planning on giving it a go on your blog.
