all i want for christmas is you

xmas is getting ever closer and i'm just not feeling xmasy enough yet, so i thought maybe this might help change my mood.....

1. egg nog or hot chocolate?
if i’m totally honest, i don’t really understand what egg nog is and nothing beats a hot chocolate on a cold winter evening.

2.does santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
the elves at the north pole wrap them and santa delivers them with his reindeer drawn sleigh. everyone knows that!

3. coloured lights on tree/house or white?
i prefer white lights because i think they look more sophisicated, plus they go with the decor of any room.

4. do you hang mistletoe?
i always get some with the intention of putting it up but i always seem to forget to hang it anywhere...

5. when do you put your decorations up?
whenever we can find time towards the beginning of december. when i was younger we would all put on the xmas cds and dance around putting all the baubles on the tree.

6. what is your favorite holiday dish?
my daddy always buys lots of little canapes around xmas time so although not officially a holiday dish they are just so amazing and i always associate them with xmas. another thing i love has got to be sausages wrapped in bacon!

7. favorite holiday memory as a child?
 one year i woke up particularly early and ran downstairs to find my mama already preparing the turkey. i spent about 2 hours trying to look through the french doors into the living room to see my presents and sat at the bottom of the stairs singing xmas carols in an attempt to wake everyone else up!

8. when and how did you learn the truth about santa?
one xmas my cousin and i decided to watch a movie into the early hours and my mum came upstairs so angry at me, clutching my sack and screaming 'well now you know! you've ruined this for yourself!' it was super sad.

9. do you open a gift on christmas eve?
goodness gracious no! my parents used to get so angry if i asked.

10. how do you decorate your christmas tree?
my mama has a selection of gold and red based xmas baubles etc that she has managed to collect over the years that we use for the main tree in the living room. the tree up by mine and my brothers bedrooms is just covered in decorations we have made over the years, from cardboard mangers to clay bells!

11. snow! love it or dread it?
love it for the first few days. but when i stops me from doing anything i just get a bit annoyed. non of my friends live within walking distance so i can't see anyone. i spend all my time inside either sleeping or catching up on work!

12. can you ice skate?
i used to be pretty good. some of my friends have ice skating lessons and they tried to teach me to do jumps and skate backwards! saying that the last time i went skating i was so amazingly awful you would think i'd never been before.

13. do you remember your favorite gift?
i think it would have to be the gold charm bracelet my daddy got me. it's got 52 charms on it and is just so unbelievably beautiful! i only wear it on special occasions because i'm so scared i'll break it and it's so special to me.

14. what’s the most important thing about the holidays for you?
 spending time with friends and family. its the one day a year my family manages to go without arguing.

15. what is your favorite holiday dessert?
oh goodness me! i've never been a massive fan of xmas pudding so normally i have some jelly and ice cream followed by any chocolate i was lucky enough to get that year!

16. what is your favorite holiday tradition?
 i love xmas morning at my house. i get awoken by my brother super early and we each pick a present from our sacks to open in my bedroom. we then drag all the sacks downstairs and open our presents whilst drinking hot chocolate in our pyjamas. breakfast is scrambled egg and smoked salmon on toast quickly followed by opening our stockings by the fire. i then go off to work until late afternoon and come home for a delicious xmas dinner!

17. what tops your tree?
a big golden star!

18. which do you prefer giving or receiving?
anyone who says they don't like recieving gifts are totally lying. but there is something so exciting about picking out a present you know someone will love, wrapping it up beautifully and seeing the look on their face when they open it.

19. candy canes: yuck or yum?
yum, yum, yummy!!! and they are just so cute looking!

20. favorite christmas show?
 i don't really have one? but i always get excited by all of the xmas specials, especially dr who!

21. saddest christmas song?
 are there any sad xmas songs? most xmas songs that sound sad are merely reflective so i don't really find any of them particularly tear inducing.

22. what is your favourite christmas song?
 i absolutely love carol of the bells! we sang it in my choir last year and it just so amazing. the harmonies are so beautiful and it makes me feeling so christmasy!

how are your xmas preparations coming along?
