Are you feeling Christmassy yet?  Our countdown calendar tells me it’s officially 9 more sleeps (although Flump keeps changing it to ‘0’ sleeps – nice try Missy!) I’ve been Christmas tagged by Jane at Maflingo so here are my festive factoids – enjoy!

What’s your favourite Christmas Movie?

The Snowman – makes me cry every time!

Have you ever had a white Christmas?

Probably, but not that I can remember.

Where do you usually spend your holiday?

At home in the morning, then over to the in-laws for a Christmas feast. We then fly to Belfast and do it all over again!

What is your favourite Christmas song?

Christmas Wrapping – The Waitresses

Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?

No but we do a Christmas Eve box with a few treats for the kiddies, new jammies and a DVD.

Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?

Er, nope sorry!

What holiday traditions are you looking forward to this year?

The whole shebang – Santa, turkey dinner and being with the family.

Is your Christmas tree real or fake?

Always fake, far too much faffing around with a real one for my liking.

What is your all time favourite holiday treat/food/sweet?

Massive tins of chocolates and Baileys.

Be honest, do you like giving or receiving gifts better?

Giving, especially when you know it’s something the recipient is going to LOVE!

What is the best Christmas present you ever received?

Mama Snugglebum, here she is!


What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season? 

If it was just me and Himself a nice beach holiday somewhere otherwise a family Christmas experience somewhere like Lapland would be amazing.

Are you a pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably?

I’m pretty good.

Most memorable Christmas moment?

Seeing Santa arrive by helicopter as a kid.

What makes the holidays special for you?

The excitement of my kids – it’s infectious!

  1. I love the vlog Charlie! It’s funny but I seemed to think there was a reindeer called ‘Bob’? I definitely think between us we should have been in charge of reindeer naming!
