Hello lovely people!

Its the 1st December!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can hardly contain my excitement!!!! I absolutely love Christmas and today I plan on spending the day watching Christmas movies with some mulled wine. I have some really exciting things planned for this blog over this Christmas period so stay tuned. However I thought there would be no better way to kick of the month then with a Christmas tag blog. I got the idea to do this blog from MakeupSavy, so here goes...
1. Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?
When i was younger we used to have a real tree every year. I love the smell of real christmas trees, but they are always a hassle to clear up. We have two cats at home and they would always brush against the tree so there would always be leaves everywhere. Then we got a synthetic tree and actually it is pretty good. So after having both i prefer the synthetic, with some christmas tree yankee candles lit.
2. You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick?
I am always a massive fan of a mocha from starbucks and they have just brought out a orange mocha which i really like. If you like Terry's chocolate orange, then you will like this. So I would have to order that.
3: What's your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?
I have always been very traditional when it comes to Christmas and that includes decorating so I always go for the green and red theme.
4. Giving or receiving?
As much as i love opening presents from the people I love, I absolutely love giving presents. I love shopping for people and giving them something that they may not be asking for but completely sums them up as a person.
5. To mince pie or not?
Definitely to mince pie! I absolutely love mince pies and have been finding really hard to resist buying them until December.
6. What's your traditional Christmas lunch?
Turkey with all the trimmings. My dad does this amazing recipe with the Brussels sprouts where he adds bacon and walnuts and lemon juice, it is just amazing. Christmas lunch is probably my favourite meal of the entire year and I normally get through about 2 plate fulls! Greedy I know.
7. Christmas day fashion
Start the day off in pj's, but for Christmas lunch I will probably wear a Christmas jumper and a skater skirt, or a pair of leggings with some boots. Then I will wrap up warm with some wellies for a walk after lunch with the dog.
8. What's your favourtie Christmas song?
'All I want for Christmas is you' by Mariah Carey. This song mostly involves me dancing round my room in pj's and singing into a hairbrush!
9. What's your favourite Christmas movie?
This was easy, Muppets Christmas Carol! 'Tis the season to be jolly and joyous, fa la la' that is my attempt as singing. I literally watch this movie about 50 times over christmas.
10. Open presents before or after lunch.
Definitely before! We have this tradition where we have a stocking at the end of our bed every year, that has little bits and bobs in, which we open when we wake up. Then we open the main presents from each other before lunch. Then after lunch we tend to open presents from friends who have given us presents.
Just doing this tag has made me so excited! Please feel free to do this tag, I would love to here your responses.
