The Christmas Tag

Hello everyone! Now that it's well into December I'm starting to get super excited for Christmas. Last year my prelim exams were at the start of December so it took me a while to get into the Christmas spirit but this year I am raring to go. I've seen this tag, started by Makeup Pixi3, on loads of blogs so far and I've enjoyed reading all the posts so I've decided to give it my two cents.

1. What's your favourite thing about Christmas?

I love the atmosphere of Christmas. All the lights and decorations in the shopping centre, the hustle and bustle of the shops, the smell of Christmas markets and the feeling of sitting inside on a cold snowy day drinking hot chocolate. I also love giving people presents, I love planning everything and trying to find people things that they didn't even know they really wanted.

2. What's your favourite make up look for the festive season?

In the past I've never really swapped up my make up much for Christmas. This year I plan to add a lot more gold to my eye shadow looks and sport a dark red lip a lot more often.

3. Real tree or fake tree?

To me it's definitely fake. When my mum made the transition from fake to real she also decided that she'd change over all the decorations. I always thought that the decorations held all the memories. I hate the real trees with their alien silver and blue baubles, it's not the same.

4. Giving presents or receiving presents?

Definitely giving! Giving means wrapping. I love the planning involved in buying presents for people. Around the end of November I always sit down and write a list of who I want to buy for and what I want to get them and it just gets me in the best Christmassy mood. Not going to lie, I also do love receiving presents, especially ones that have had a lot of thought put into them. I remember talking to someone about tarrot cards at a party a couple of months before Christmas and when they bought me a pack for Christmas it felt really nice knowing that they'd remembered.

5. Do you open your presents Christmas morning or evening?

Morning! Who can wait until evening, that's madness?!

6. Handmade Christmas cards or bought?

When I was younger I used to make cards for my parents and grandparents but now I just buy them.

7. What's your favourite Christmas film?

I hate to admit this on my blog but the only Christmas film I've ever seen is Elf. I did really like it though! I really like to watch Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, I love the bit where he runs down the stairs on Christmas morning in his wee stripy pyjamas.

8. What's your favourite Christmas food?

Roast potatoes, chocolate oranges and mince pies.

That's all from me on this tag, I tag everyone who wants to do it! And if you do send me a link :)
