The Christmas Tag!

Having so much time away from blogging recently, Ive find it hard to come up with any decent posts I could do. Cue The Christmas Tag, what could be more festive and simple to ease me back into it!

 1. What is your favourite thing about Christmas?
The whole mixture of everything creating festive cheer. The feeling of good will everywhere you go is really heart-warming  everyone in my family becomes slightly giddy and were all in high spirits. Its the little things like mince pies, hot chocolate with cinnamon, and Christmas themed everything that make me warm inside.

2. What is your favourite make up look for the festive season?
Definitely red lips and simple eye make-up  Also, if you cant do a touch of sparkle at Christmas, when can you? This is the only time I feel its appropriate to whack on the sparkly eye liner for a good Christmas night out.

3. Real or fake tree?
Real all the way. Theres nothing quite as special as picking out the perfect tree then unwrapping it in all its glory in the living room. The smell alone is enough to sway the real vs fake argument. Ive had real trees my whole life, apart from this year we have borrowed a fake one to save pennies...I must say it isnt quite the same!

4. Giving or receiving presents?
Lets face it, its always very exciting receiving presents, and often seems slightly cliche to say we prefer giving to receiving. However I have t say this is definitely true for me, even my boyfriend has commented on how I get more of buzz from giving him his gifts than I do from opening my own. I can get very stressed doing Christmas shopping, but seeing someone get excited over a surprise youve given them is totally worth it.

5. Do you open your presents in the morning or evening?
The morning of course! Weve always been allowed to open just one on Christmas Eve night, along with our new Christmas Eve pyjamas! 

6. Handmade or bought Christmas cards?
Handmade cards are lovely, but Im rubbish at crafts and Im not sure people really appreciate the effort that goes into them, so I always buy my cards but make sure to find nice ones.

 7. What is your favourite Christmas film?
I love all Christmas films, watching them is by far one of my favourite festive things to do. I have to say the original Santa Claus The Movie with Dudley Moore, Ive always watched that before bed on Christmas Eve with my family and its just the best tradition we have. I get just as excited watching this as I do on Christmas day, we still do this every year.

 8. What is your favourite Christmas food? 
Im a big foodie so Christmas is such a good excuse to eat constantly. I do love my Christmas dinner but Id have to say my favourite part of it is pigs in blankets. I literally pile them onto my family make extra just so theres enough for everyone else. Theyre amazing and Im kind of upset I only get them one day a year, but I guess they wouldnt be so special if I had them year round.

Ive seen this tag so many times on loads of blogs so I tag anyone to do it. If you do be sure to link it below!
