The Christmas Tag!

Hey guys! I cannot believe how soon it is until Christmas! I feel like this year has flown in. I can't believe this time last year I was getting ready to go to New York for New Year (& getting engaged!)
I actually remembered that Laura done this tag a few years back so I wanted to do a little festive tag!

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
Home Alone for sure! Then Home Alone 2, Elf, Scrooged and the Grinch!

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
I have never really done the Christmas Eve present thing, normally my mum gives us new jammies to wear on Christmas Eve so I guess that sort of counts? But we tend to stick to Christmas morning for presents.
 
3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
Family is a massive thing for my lot. Too the extent people think its weird how close we are. One year, when my cousin lived in OZ, she was due to come over for two weeks for Christmas and New Year. A week before she was due to arrive, she walked through the door and I have never been so happy. Christmas is all about family and every memory I have with them is cherished but that slightly beats it to the post.

4. Favourite festive food?
Stuffing! I never used to like it but I am now obsessed and could eat plates full! I love nearly everything from Christmas dinner which is unusual as I am normally quite fussy. Also, shout out to quailty street toffee fingers!

5. Favourite Christmas gift?
I am crazily lucky when it comes to Christmas gifts and have gotten some amazing gifts over the years. But again I'd need to say my cousin coming home was the best present I have ever got. You can never put a price on the gift of time.

6. Favourite Christmas scent?
Merry Christmas Cookie by Bath and Body Works!

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
When my Gumps was still with us, he would take us out to either George Square in Glasgow or into Edinburgh for the Christmas Markets, have lunch some where then at night, we would drive around Glasgow, finding the best christmas lights. It was away to get us out the house so my mum and dad could wrap presents and get everything ready, with out us seeing and ruining Santa for us. It was wonderful. When he sadly passed, that christmas, I was 18 and could drive. My cousin was 5 and I wanted to carry it on for him. Now we just go a drive for some food and to spot the best lights. This year Sam and I are going to the christmas move drive in at Loch Lomond again on Christmas Eve and I will be back to take my cousin out.

8. What tops your tree?
We always have a star! As its Sam and I's first Christmas in the flat, I bought our star the other day. It is from Tesco, it is silver, glittery and lights up. I love it!

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
In all serious, I never really asked for anything seriously over the top. I have recieved some extravagant gifts but never asked for them. Lord bless my extremely generous parents. What I would do when I was younger would be to circle things I wanted in the Argos Catalouge so I probably went over the top and asked for too much and didn't get everything but I never asked for anything wild!

10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
Again for sure family, to all have some time off together and to spend it with each other. There will be 16 of us at my mum's this year and I am so excited for it.

If you are a Christmas lover like us here at Tartan Fairytales,
let us know what your favourite things about it are by doing this tag!
Have a great one guys!
