If you have been following me for a little while (especially on instagram - @Gracies_x) you will of noticed that christmas is my favourite time of the year by a mile! you just cant beat cosy night in with fairy lights and a hot chocolate!
I stumbled across this tag online and i just couldn't resist, so lets get started....
1. What is your favorite Christmas film?
It has to be The Grinch i grew up watching this film at christmas so for me its not christmas without it
Alot of people i know haven't seen the film and i keep telling them they're missing out! i absoultley love it i just think its such a clever film how it written and directed and Jim Carrey is the perfect Grinch i know it off by heart but everytime i watch it i still laugh out loud, its a film i would highly reccomend to anyone!
2. Have you ever had a White Christmas?
When i was at school i used to wish for a white christmas and i remember a few years ago we had alot of snow in the UK just after christmas but i dont think its snowed on christmas day in the UK heavily
3. Where do you usually spend your holiday?
Normally my family and i go to Center Parcs for Christmas i think i've been there more times than i have been at home, its our little tradition we go with some of my dads side of the family and were all really close so its lovely to spend time with everyone as i wouldn't see them on christmas day unless we go there! we're going again this year and i think we've all been looking forward to it since febuary!
4. What is your favorite Christmas song?
I love all the classics such as White Christmas and Driving Home For Christmas you know the standard ones that are on christmas CD's but i do love a bit of Buble!
5. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
I think i have only ever opened a christmas present on christmas eve if im with a friend who i might not see on christmas day just so we can see each other open the present we got each other but other than that nope!
6. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?
Funny this question is on here, the other week i went to see 'Father Christmas' in his grotto with my cousin and her son and he asked us if we new his reindeer so first of all we said Rudolph and he said that Rudolph isnt one of the original ones! so then we were stuck, i remember Vixen, Dancer, Prancer, Dasher, Donner? is the correct? i think i'm just making them up now!
7. What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year?
Like i mentioned earlier im really looking forward to Center Parcs, the bowling and badminton and swimming always go down well!
8. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
In our house we have 3... yep were christmas mad! i have a fake small one in my bedroom we have a very tall fake one in the hall and we have a real one that goes in the lounge, if you want to see how i decorate my bedroom for christmas i uploaded a Festive Room Tour video to my youtube channel the other day
9. What is your all-time favorite holiday food/sweet treat?
I quite like Stollen also a box of celebrations goes down a treat in our house anything chocolate is always a winner!
10. Be honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?
Honestly i prefer to watch people open theirs as much as i get excited that i have things to open i much prefer giving people gifts and wrapping them up pretty and seeing them open presents
11. What is the best Christmas gift you’ve ever received?
Tough question i honestly couldn't say i always recieve lovely things, i love the beauty products i tend to recieve because its a huge passion of mine and i know that thought has gone into that but i do also like sentimental things that perhaps i haven't mentioned i'd like such as a nice photo or things like that, i'd like to think i'm still waiting for my best christmas gift in the best possible way it makes it more exciting!
12. What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
I would love to go to new york around christmas maybe early or mid December but i wouldn't like to be away for christmas day as i would feel i'm missing out on the usual tradition, as long as its colder than the UK i'd enjoy it i couldn't imagine spending christmas in a hot country
13. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
I love wrapping presents i like to go all out and stick pretty lables and bells and curling ribbon and sometimes small tree decorations on the presents i love it!!
14. Most memorable Holiday moment?
Again all of mine are at Center Parcs we tend to go swimming on christmas eve at night as late as we can and i love doing that so thats probably my most memorable moment i suppose
15. What made you realize the truth about Santa?
I honestly cannot remember i think i just thought about and thought theres no way he can do all that in one night, however i do remember being about 8 or 9 laying in bed on christmas eve and hearing bells jingle we were at centre parcs at the time and i thought for a second maybe he is real and thats rudolph and that i should probably be asleep! i doubt my mum or dad remembered to even take a bell or something but to this day i still can't explain what that was!
16. Do you make New Years resolutions? Do you stick to them?
No and no i dont really see the big thing why do we decide to do it every new year and being honest it only lasts a few days! then everyone goes back to eating chocolate a meat! if theres something i want to change or achieve ill just do it starting from the point i've thought about it!
17. What makes the holidays special for you?
This is the easiest question the answer....Family, making memories with people who i love thats what life is all about for me!
