Yesterday, I received a comment on one of my posts from a lovely blogger from the Girl Enters Blog asking me to do the Christmas Tag, but not just any Christmas Tag, it is completely original. Obviously, I couldn’t refuse, because I am a Christmas fanatic.

Here we go!
Do You Like Christmas?
Do I like Christmas? Really?
I absolutely ADORE Christmas! I have been watching Christmas Movies since October and pestering my friends about it for just as long. I am persistent but only because it makes me ever so happy!
I’m always so sad when it’s over though.
What Do You Enjoy Most About Christmas?
Can I say just everything? If not, I would have to say being with Family and friends because I am very much a people person. However, I am a huge fan of wrapping presents. I find it so relaxing and enjoyable, especially when I have some Festive songs on in the background.
Do You Travel At Christmas Or Stay At Home?
We tend to just stay at home, although in the past we have been known to spend the holidays in Wales or Cornwall.
Do You Send Out Christmas Cards?
I do! I haven’t started yet though. Thanks for the reminder.
But yeah, I always try to. It was easier when I was in School because they would give you a list of names to write for, but now I just have to think of everyone off the top of my head which means I usually forget someone without intending to do so.
I hope I don’t do that this year!
Do You Go To Any Christmas Parties?
Not really. If anything I go out for meals with friends. I’ve just never been the partying type.
What Tops Your Tree?
A star! I remember when I was younger me and my brother used take in turns, year after year, to see who would be the one to put it on the tree. You have to love memories like that.
When Do You Put Up Your Christmas Tree?
Most years it will be about the 12th. However, last year it was the 5th, as we brought a real tree from a Church near us. It was an amazing tree. I hope we get a real tree again this year.
How Long Do You Leave Up Your Decorations For?
Usually until 12 days after Christmas.
Which Do You Prefer – Giving Or Receiving Presents?
Don’t get me wrong there is nothing like receiving a present, especially when it is just what you wanted, but I think I love giving gifts that bit more. I just get over excited when I see people about to open the present I brought for them. In a way, that feeds my happiness!
When And How Did You Learn About Santa Clause?
I don’t remember my exact age, but what I do remember is, my Brother was the one who let me know the news. I was pretty heartbroken by it. It’s not like I wasn’t fully aware but I just felt like if I definitely knew, the magic of Christmas would be gone. Thankfully, it wasn’t like that at all.
Flash forward a few years, and I have now realised the true meaning of Christmas as a Christian so that has reinvigorated the magic.
What’s Your Favourite Thing To Eat During The Christmas Holidays?
Well, I’m not a fan of Christmas Cake. So it’s not that. I would have to say Maltesers, and although I eat them all year round, I feel it is more accepted to eat box after box when it’s Christmas.
I think I would also go as far as to say, they are the key to my heart.
Once again, thank you for the tag. Now, I have to choose who to tag.
I am tagging:
I’m not sure who else to tag at the moment but if you want to do this tag, please do!
