The Christmas Tag

Heard about this on the #LBloggers Twitter chat a few Sundays ago and once I’d seen it of course I had to do it!
Started in November by Makeup-Pixi3, everyone’s invited to join in! 🙂 
The more the merrier, ho ho ho!
1.  Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?

I usually have a fake tree but also have Lily Flame’s Mistletoe Kisses candles which have the aroma of a real tree!

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

Still my soy latte but with a mince pie instead of a muffin 🙂

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

This may shock you all…purple! 

4.  Giving or receiving?

Giving. It gets harder every year as nobody actually needs anything but I enjoy picking things for people that I think they’ll love.

5.  To mince pie or not to?

I would eat mince pies all year round. I stash some in the freezer so I have plenty going into the new year. Love ’em!

6.  What’s your traditional Christmas lunch?

The family usually have the turkey and everything. I have a turkey leg as I only like the brown meat but if my Mum gets a crown then she gets me a lamb chop in. 
Over 40 and still spoilt when I go home!

7.  Christmas day fashion

The year before last I wore a Santa costume for lunch, last year  I was short of time between church and collecting my Great Aunt so it was pretty jumper, long smart skirt and boots. Always boots. Whatever day it is Stella still needs walkies!

8.  What’s your favourite Christmas song?

Fairytale Of New York

Carol Of The Bells

9.  What’s your favourite Christmas film?

Still haven’t seen It’s A Wonderful Life though everyone raves about it! 
I know it’s for kids really but I love Polar Express 🙂

10.  Open presents before or after lunch?

When I was married we did ours before going to whichever parents for lunch but as we’re all grown-ups around the table we wait till after The Queen’s Speech 
and everyone’s settled with a cuppa.


Please join in this Christmas tag if you haven’t already done so, it’s good fun and nice to see how we all do things differently 🙂


thank you for visiting 🙂


  1. This is a GREAT idea – I must get round to doing it myself at some point. I love that your favourite is purple – Ross would do that too if I gave him the chance to!! Thanks for linking to PoCoLo x

  2. Gonna have to keep scrolling up and down for this. Bah Humbug!
    1) synth (no needles)
    2) Coffee. White No froth/not buggered about.
    3) White
    4) Giving. Unless it’s a REALLY good gift on the receiving front!
    5) I’d love to but still low carbing. 🙁
    6) We like to mix it up a bit… haven’t made our mind up yet this year!
    7) PJ’s if they’re coming to us, jeans and a t-shirt if I’m going to them. Lazy, slovenly git!
    8) Christmas wrapping (Waitresses), Fairy Tale of NY, and i’m even partial to a bit of ‘Koylees’ Santa Baby…
    9) Alistair Sims in ‘A Christmas Carol.’ Nostalgiafest
