The 2013 Christmas TAG

First of all apologies for not posting much recently, I've got so much AS Level work to do, especially in preparation for my operation! I'll definitely write up lots of posts this weekend to make sure I can post next week! For now I thought I'd do a quick little tag!

Georgina from Makeup-Pixi3 has once again created a great tag, I loved doing her Autumn one and I love Christmas so I thought why not do this one! It know it is only the start of November but for me this is Christmas season and I've already nearly finished doing my Christmas shopping! I want to get all my shopping done this month so I can just kick back, relax and recover in December. Onto the tag though!

Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?
My family have never actually gotten a real tree, we've always had a synthetic one and I will definitely continue to use a synthetic one as I get older and move out. My grandparents only get real trees and I'm just not a fan!

You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick up?
Probably an Iced Tea if they had it! I'm not a fan of hot drinks, especially not coffee or tea, I will sometimes have a hot chocolate but only at home, boring I know!

What's your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?
We never really have a colour theme, our tree is always really disorganised but I love the way it looks! We basically just chuck on everything we can find. I'd love to have a colour theme one year though, I think red and white would be lovely!

Giving or receiving?
Everyone loves opening presents on Christmas morning but is there a better feeling than when you watch someone open a gift from yourself? I love picking out the perfect presents for friends and family and when you pick a gift that you know they'll love, you can barely keep it a secret! 

To mince pie or not to?
Not to mince pie! I really can't stand mince pies!

What's your traditional Sunday lunch?
Now please don't hate me, I've already said I don't like hot drinks and mince pies! I really am not a fan of Sunday lunches, I'll eat it on Christmas day but I wouldn't chose to have it on any other day! We always have turkey with the traditional veg, sauces and yorkshire puddings, now I do like the yorkshire pudding part!

Christmas day fashion
Usually I force myself to get dressed but this year I'm pretty sure I'm just going to chill in my onesie all day and probably the next day as well! 

What's your favourite Christmas song?
Now this is a tough question! I have a few favourites, I love 'Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree' by Mel and Kim and 'I wish it could be Christmas everyday' by Wizzard! There are so many more that I love though, I could ramble on forever.

What's your favourite Christmas film?
It has to be The Polar Express with ELF coming as a very close second, both are classic films that are a must have watch around the Christmas period!

Open presents before or after lunch?
Always before!
