It’s so close to Christmas and I’m excited! Although it will be very different this year, I’m most looking forward to relaxing, spending time with my family, and all the great food/drink. To get more into the festive spirit, I’m going to answer some fun Christmas questions.

The original questions

When do your decorations go up?

I normally wait until 1st December and like to make a big thing about this day. I’ll get my decorations out and put on my Christmas playlist (check it out here). This year, I like I actually did it at the end of November because 2020 is strange so I’ve given up my usual Christmas rules!

Who is the Scrooge in your family or friendship group?

Nobody is particularly against Christmas but if I had to choose one person, it would be my Dad. But even he enjoys most of Christmas!

If money were no object where and how would you spend your Christmas?

It would be so cool to go somewhere cold and snowy, like a ski resort, and stay in a cabin with a log fire and huge Christmas tree. I’ve never been skiing but I can picture it being very festive.

What Christmas film do you HAVE to watch every festive season?

Elf. It’s definitely my top Christmas movie of all time. I tend to leave it to really close to Christmas too. I’m also obsessed with Love Actually and watch that every year too.

Who do you find the hardest to buy presents for?

My mum. She likes perfume and jewellery but I can never afford nice ones, so that’s a struggle. It’s also her birthday on Christmas Eve so thinking of so many presents at once makes it even more difficult.

Would you buy lots of little presents for a hamper or buy one main big one?

Lots of little presents because that’s what makes the best hamper! Food hampers are definitely my favourite!

What did you leave for Santa when you were little?

A mince pie and small glass of sherry for Santa, and a carrot for Rudolph. We still do this now, even though the youngest member of my family is 22….

Where did you spend last Christmas?

In Newcastle with my family, as I do pretty much every year (I’ve only had 1 Christmas not here).

Which Christmas song makes you cringe?

There’s not a single song that I can think of but I hate listening to the newish Christmas pop songs (maybe within the past 5 years?). None spring to mind because I just skip them when they come on. They just don’t have the festive charm for me.

If you could be a character in a holiday movie which would you be and why?

Carol/Mrs Clause in The Santa Clause 2. Imagine living a normal life then all of a sudden you fall in love with a man who then turns out to be Santa? And THEN you get to move to the North Pole and become Mrs Clause. Seems like a sweet deal to me. There appears to be unlimited cookies and hot chocolate there too.
