Christmas Tag

I've been in the Christmas spirit for a while now and I'm happy today as it's Friday :D so I thought I'd give this Christmas tag that's been floating around a while a whirl :) Don't worry, dogs are involved!

Christmas Tag

What's your favourite thing about Christmas?
I love everything about Christmas! I love getting together with my family on Christmas morning and opening our presents - watching other people's faces when they unwrap their gifts makes me happy :) I love decorating the flat and coming home every night to a sparkling Christmas tree, it cheers me up after a long day. I love choosing presents for people, even though some are far easier than others! I love getting Ted ready for Christmas! I love Christmas smells, especially cinnamon and gingerbread. And I love all the Christmas themed drinks coffee shops do :)

Real tree or fake tree?
I really love the way real trees look and smell BUT they are crazy messy and I'm allergic to the pines. We had a little one when Dan and I first moved in together but I came up in a crazy rash after decorating it - then I realised. So we have a fake one now and it still looks lovely (I think so anyway!) Complete with doggy decorations from Wilkos! Here it is :)


Giving presents or receiving presents?
Definitely giving! I do love getting a present I've wanted for ages but, as I said, I really love seeing other people's faces when they open my gifts. Last year, as stocking fillers, I got my brother and sister matching Labrador tops (like Alan in the hangover) for a laugh, so they posed with the dogs for this shot :) As you can see, we're not really morning people (apart from Bonnie!)

Do you open your presents Christmas morning or evening?
Morning! I don't know anyone with the will power to wait until the evening! Besides, what if I get a gorgeous dress/jumper and I want to wear it on the day?! This is us, first thing on Christmas morning last year at my mums :)

Handmade Christmas cards or bought?
I really like handmade cards but I never have time and I'm very messy! I think we might do a moonpig card with Ted as a pup in his reindeer costume on it this year! :) Does that count?

What's your favorite Christmas food?
My mum's roast dinner - nothing beats it! Pigs in blankets are the best. Although whatever I eat, the dogs will share. Going to try making the doggy Christmas dinner from my Lily's Kitchen cookbook!

That's a wrap folks. What are your favourite things about Christmas? Do your dogs love Christmas? Let me know if you do the tag!
