Hi everyone, welcome to my blog!
Happy 2nd of December and the second day of #Blogmas. For the start of this I thought I’d do a Christmas tag to start it off really simply and start my festive posts. Learn more about my favourite festive things now! If you do a similar tag, let me know!
What’s your favourite Christmas movie?
Love Actually makes me so happy, honestly I think it is the perfect film AND it is set around Christmas so how can you not love it?? Also Hugh Grant.
Have you ever had a white Christmas?
Yep, but not recently, that is what happens when you live in the north. I think I had a few weeks off school once when I was younger which is very fun.
Where do you usually spend your holiday?
At home with my family as a lot of us live very close together, we have quite a basic Christmas and never travel anywhere.
What’s your favourite Christmas song?
I love “Santa Tell Me” by Ariana Grande – which is quite a basic choice but it is a bop! I also love all the other basic ones because they just put me in a good mood and everyone knows them so they have been played constantly in my life.
Do you open any presents on Christmas eve?
No. We have never been one of those families and I always wanted a Christmas Eve box but I have never had one. Last year we got PJs on Christmas Eve which, I guess ,counts.
What holiday traditions are you looking forward to this year?
We don’t really have specific traditions except going to Christmas Mass with the whole family and getting dressed up for it, which is always fun.
Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
We have a fake one which is so much better than a real one because it doesn’t die and it’s needles don’t fall off and ruin the room it is in. The only con about the fake tree, though, is the Christmas tree smell which is gorgeous and missing from our house.
What’s your favourite holiday food/treat/sweet?
Chocolate…. I think I can count that as a holiday treat because I eat so much more around this time ad there is more available. Quality streets, celebrations and chocolate oranges are some of my favourite chocolate ever and they are festive I think. To be honest I love most food – Christmas dinner is one of my favourite parts of the whole festive season.
Be honest. Do you prefer giving or receiving gifts?
I love being spoiled and spoiling other people so – BOTH!
What’s your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
I think everyone would possibly have this as one of their dream holidays BUT I would love to spend Christmas in New York
What’s the best Christmas present you’ve ever received?
When I was younger getting a beautiful pink guitar will always stay with me because I was so happy when I got it. It didn’t come in that handy though as I stopped learning after a little while, whoops.
Are you a pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably?
I am actually awful, I have to apologise whenever I give gifts to people.
What makes the holidays special for you?
It’s just a beautiful time filled with happiness, friendship, love and food. It is just magical and I love it. It is the only good thing about the cold weather. Spending time with loved one in this season is just amazing and the world can get so busy so it is lovely to take time to relax and enjoy it with people you love.
Thank you for reading! If you enjoyed I would love it if you would like this post and follow my blog and come back everyday the rest of December for #Blogmas!!
Love, Niamh xx
