The Christmas Tag!

Hello! I wanted to do a vaguely Christmassy post for once and have seen this Christmas Tag by  Makeup-Pixi3 so I decided I'd join in! Let me know if you've done it too or have any other tags as I'm struggling to post reviews due to the lack of daylight to take photos!

1.  Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?
Honestly, I prefer real trees, but only if Lee is prepared to clear up after it! Our synthetic one shed loads of fake needles last year though!

2.  You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick?
I've only just got into hot drinks so I'm still a stable Hot Chocolate drinker! Sorry to be boring! The costa coffee cups are amazing though.

3.  Whats your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?
We always used to change it every year when I lived with my Mum but I think from next year when we're back in our own home I'm going to try and keep it red and gold and traditional. Like Monica's off of Friends!

4.  Giving or receiving?
Receiving. OMG I know I'm so spoilt but actually the stress of giving presents ruins it for me, I take over a weekend to wrap them up to make sure that they're perfect, always spend far too much for fear I haven't spent enough, and my heart pounds so hard whilst they're opening it because I'm so nervous! Ah it's horrible! Then I just worry all day that they're just being polite. Oh gosh I'm getting in a tizz just thinking about it!


5.  To mince pie or not to?
Not to, Ming.


6.  What's your traditional Sunday lunch?
We always used to have salmon for lunch as it was easier for Mum to cook and meant that she could spend more time with us on the day! Now we're starting to rotate between all of our houses as we've moved out on our own! Mine would be the stuffing that my grandad and I make from scratch with Turkey, pigs in blankets, cauliflower cheese, Brussel sprouts, swede, broccoli, parsnips, yorkshires, and of course potatoes! Lee and I are planning on doing a 3 bird roast when it's our turn! *drools*


7.  Christmas day fashion
Now we're older we tend to be a little more dressy if possible, but as we have to travel from the in laws, to my sisters, to his sisters, to the pub then back to the in laws it's going to have to be pretty practical! Hopefully a nice dress, some thick tights and my boots!


8.  What's your favourite Christmas song?
All I want for Christmas is you by Lady Antebellum!


9.  What's your favourite Christmas film?
I'm a total Scrooge and I don't like home alone, it's got to be elf for me!

10.  Open presents before or after lunch?
I'm actually pretty restrained and open them throughout the day! The fact that we're travelling around so much will mean that we can stagger them, but the ones from Lee will be opened first thig I imagine! Actually I got one early already haha!


So there's my first real Christmassy post! Link me up to any of your winter or Christmas tags!
