December 2013


The lovely Luchessa from BeautyExpression by Luchessa kindly invited me on Twitter to take part in this tag and being a HUGE fan of Christmas, I jumped at the chance. I hope you enjoy it.

1. Do you start your Christmas shopping on Black Friday or wait until the last-minute?
Every year I decide that this will be the year I get organised. So every year I start buying presents in September. I then feel smug and relax until mid December when I realise how much I still need to do and join the throngs of last minute shoppers yet again.

2. If you could be in any Christmas movie what would it be?

I would DEFOS be a toymaker in Elf.

3. Which do you like better: Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
I love Christmas Day but for me Christmas Eve is just so special. The feeling of excitement and anticipation everywhere you go. I absolutely love it. 

4. When does your family put up your Christmas tree and who decorates it?

The Christmas tree always goes up the first week in December and we all help with the decorations.

5. White lights or coloured lights?
We have a green tree with gold twinkly lights – pretty.


6. Are you guilty of peeking at your presents or do you like the surprise?
I find it very hard to resist peeking but for me the surprise is the best bit so I always force myself to resist.

7. Would you rather live in a gingerbread house or in Santa’s Workshop?
Oh what a lovely question. I love gingerbread so the house is very appealing but the Elves live in the workshop, right? And they can make anything cos they’re magic, right? Even lipstick, right? So no choice really!

8. Tell us your Christmas Eve traditions!

Oh last minute shopping then the family get together, we get a Christmas Eve present, usually new jammies and then we all curl up on the couch and watch Christmas movies with a glass of Mulled Wine.

9. If you could be under the mistletoe with anyone who would it be?
My lovely hubbie of course.

10. What tops your tree?
A golden star.


11. Can you name the 12 days of Christmas?
They have names? No, sorry, no idea!!!

12. Have you ever gone Christmas carolling?
Never, its not really something that happens in Glasgow.

13. Do you countdown to Christmas? If so, how many days are left?
Course I do. I have a Santa with a day counter and every day I change it. Today it reads – 02. YAY!!!!

14. What are some foods and treats you can count on having every holiday season?
Mulled wine is what I look forward to, it is so delish. Oh and the cheeseboard is always epic!

15. How has Christmas kept its magic for you as you’ve grown older?

To be honest I love Christmas every bit as much now as when I was younger. The sense of unity, everyone excited about buying gifts that will make their loved ones happy. I will never get too old to love it. 


I am not going to tag anyone in particular. Its Christmas. Anyone who wants to do it can do. I hope you all enjoyed reading it and all have a wonderful Christmas. God bless.
