Christmas Nostalgia




I find that December is all about looking back at the year more so once we are over Christmas and heading towards New Year. People never really seem to reflect on Christmas I found this tag last Christmas however I did not have time to publish it so I thought I would share it this festive season. 

What's you favourite Christmas Movie?
I think I would have to say that it is the Muppet's Christmas Carol as I have a feeling that this is one of the only ones I have seen, What can I say I am not a massive Christmas movie fan I just watch normal movies throughout the year. 

Have you ever had a white Christmas?
I can not remember one however, they may have been one when I was small which I do not remember. I think I would like one as it would feel very magical but this may just be me and wanting pictures of Jess playing in the snow and posing for Instagram. 

Where do you spend the big day?
I have always spent it at home with my parents for as long as I can remember. Since Jess came into the world it means that I have had to go down south between Christmas and New Year so that we can have another Christmas with Daddy and his family. I can only imagine how much easier it is going to be when we get our own house. 

What's your favouite Christmas Song?
I feel like I would have to say Mariah Carey all I want for Christmas is you, however I do feel like we could do with some new Christmas songs as they are all getting a bit dated now but this may just be me the old ones are the best though. 

Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
No we have to wait till Christmas or after Christmas to be able to open presents. Even if we see people before the big day and get presents we have never been allowed to open them I feel like this may ruin part of Christmas for me if we could.

Can you name all of Santa's Reindeers?
No I know I only know a few - Rudolph, Vixen, Cupid Dasher, Dancer, Prancer

What holiday tradition are you looking forward to this year?
Just been together as a family is the biggest tradition I am looking forward to because there is nothing better than been with family because I feel like we do not spend a lot of time together anymore not really good quality time. 

Is your tree real or fake? 
We have a fake one never have had a real one I doubt we will for a while because of the needles we don't her to hurt herself on them. Maybe when she is more grown up and she knows she has to be careful.

What is your favoutite all time Christmas food?
I would have to say the twiglets which only seem  to come out at Christmas I refuse to entertain small bags or pigs in blankets which I really seem to enjoy as well. 

Be honest do you prefer receiving or giving gifts the best?
I am going to have to say giving because I enjoy seeing the look on other people's faces when they get the gifts which I have purchased. I always find it pretty awkward when I am receiving gifts however we all know this could just be me

What is the best gift you have ever received?
I think back in the day it must have been when I got a new phone however, one Christmas that does standout it was around 6 years ago when I go a laptop without that none of this would have been possible. I only upgraded it around 18 months ago after a pretty good life it did start to die on me. Or last year when Joe paid for me to go to a log cabin in Yorkshire which was super beautiful. 

What would your dream place to visit for the holiday season be?
I would love to visit a log cabin in the snow so maybe in one of the Scandinavian countries lots of good food and lovely log fire which would help to keep us all warm

Are you a pro present wrapper or fail miserably? 
I am not the greatest but not the worst I would say that I am somewhere in the middle. You would not find my wrapping on Instagram at all for either reason

Most memorable Christmas moment?
I would like to say Jess's first Christmas however, this may be because I have been looking back at the photographs recently and this is why it seems to be really vivid for me. It was such a special time I will have to admit been able to get excited about Christmas again because you have someone small for the magic to be real again. 

What made you realise the truth about Santa? 
I honestly don't have a clue

What makes the holidays special for you?
Family and spending time with them some who I do not see for a while but it is always nice to have a good catch up with them
