Christmas photography


1. What is your favourite Christmas movie?
Ooh that's a tough one! I love all the Christmas movies! My favourites are probably Home Alone 1 & 2. They're both incredibly funny and the second one is even better as it's set in New York. I love seeing all of the famous attractions decorated beautifully. Other favourites include The Santa Clause and The Grinch - they're classics and you just can't beat them!

2. Do you open your Christmas presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
We've always opened ours on Christmas morning. I think it's more magical to wait for the morning as it's something to look forward to and the anticipation builds up which makes it even more exciting. I was definitely an impatient child, though, and I would have happily opened them on Christmas Eve *insert monkey with his hands over his eyes emoji*

3. What's your favourite Christmas memory?
When I was a child my Mam used to make us sit on the stairs before we went into the sitting room, and she used to always say that she had to check to make sure Santa wasn't still in there. She also used to put dirt on the fireplace and move some of the coals to make it look like Santa had been. It was so magical and I'll always remember it!

4. Favourite festive food?
Terry's chocolate orange and trifle! Most people look forward to the dinner, but I'm a dessert kinda gal ;-)

5. Favourite Christmas gift?
A few years ago my Grandad gave me a gold necklace with my name on it and I'll always treasure that.

6. Favourite Christmas scent?
Real Christmas trees and salted caramel.... mmm.... droool

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Ever since I was a child we've always watched Home Alone in our pjs with hot chocolate and lots of treats. This year I think we're going to go to a hotel for tea and cake and then we might go for a walk in the park - time to make some new traditions!

8. Have you ever had a white Christmas?
Back in 2010, we had, what we called 'the big snow' (dramatic, I know!). It started snowing a few weeks before Christmas and it was non-stop. It was magical and cosy for the first few days but then it became a nightmare. The whole country came to a standstill! It was still snowing on Christmas day and I remember seeing huge icicles hanging off roofs. 

9. Where would be your dream place to visit at Christmas?
In 2012, my family and I went to New York on the 28th December and we were there for New Year's Eve. That was the most amazing trip I've ever been on and I would definitely go back. There's no better place to be at Christmas time, to be honest. The lights, the decorations, it's just breathtaking!

10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
I love the atmosphere. It's so magical, bright and there's a sense of community. For me I find it takes away my stress and anxiety. I also love spending time with my family and just doing nothing with them.

I hope this post got you into the festive spirit! 
And if you've done this tag let me know - I'd love to read your answers!

Happy Blogmas!
