Fifteen Festive FavouritesThursday, November 17, 2016
Fifteen festive favourites was inspired by Naomi at Tattooed Mummy
1. Favourite Festive Food
Marzipan. I love it and it's the only time of year I eat it, I put a double layer on our Christmas cake, and savour every last bite, and Andy's not keen so he gives me his (I married a most excellent man).
2. Favourite Reindeer
Rudolf, she saved Christmas after all.
3. Favourite Day of Christmas
Christmas Eve - everything is done, there is the anticipation of the day to come, and everyone is relaxing and ready to celebrate.
4. Favourite Christmas Song
I can't pick just one. Macy Grey, Winter Wonderland. I love her voice on this song. I also love Stop The Cavalry by Jona Lewie as it always makes me think of my Dad. Finally, I Want an Alien for Christmas by Fountains of Wayne because Andy and I sing it together every year.
5. Favourite Present:
I got a pair of grey Pixie boots when I was 10 years old, I'd pleaded with my Mum for a pair but she kept saying no. So when I opened the box on Christmas Day I couldn't get my slippers off quick enough to get those babies on my feet. Oh, and I guess a marriage proposal wasn't bad either.
6. Favourite Festive Film
7. Favourite Festive Cracker Toy
The spinning top
8. Favourite Cracker Joke
What's the smelliest animal on the farm? The toilet duck.
9. Favourite Christmas Decoration
Christmas Pig, purchased from a Christmas Grotto at a garden centre in Woodbridge. This was for our first Christmas in our new home, and the first time I had a real Christmas tree. He comes out every year, and always gets a prime spot on the tree.
10. Favourite Christmas Candle Scent
Something spicy or figgy
11. Favourite Christmas TV Advert
John Lewis 2012 - The Journey
12. Favourite Festive Tradition
Making a cup of tea and spending hours decorating the tree with Andy. We don't have things that we have to do every year, it was my stipulation that we don't make annual traditions connected to a particular place, day or person. I want each Christmas to be different in some way. Here's why.
13. Favourite Place to Spend Christmas
I don't care were I am as long as I'm with family. One day, just once, I'd like to go away and have Christmas abroad, experience different traditions and maybe a different climate.
14. Favourite Christmas Fact
The reindeer pulling Santa’s sleigh are female, as male reindeer shed their antlers at Christmas. Rudolfa?
15. Favourite Snowman Accessory
His carrot nose, because you can always find one.
Feel free to answer these questions too, it helps get into the festive spirit if you're not already excited like me, just let me know if you do.
