The Christmas Tag - (Blogmas)

It's 5th December 2013 & my Christmas spirit is in full-swing so for today's 'Blogmas' I've decided to do 'The Christmas Tag' which has been done by many other bloggers.

  1. Favourite Christmas Song:
    Usually when it actually gets to Christmas Day I am tired of Christmas songs as they are EVERYWHERE in December - in the shops, restaurants, on tv etc. 
    My favourite would have to be 'The Pogues & Kirsty McColl - The Fairytale of New York' because it's my Dad's favourite and he plays it every year.
  2. Favourite Christmas Drink:
    I've never tried Eggnog or Mulled Wine before! I don't drink coffee either so I haven't tried any of the coffee shop's festive specials.
    In winter I love hot chocolate or just a good old glass of sparkling white wine.
  3. Favourite Christmas Film:
    I love chick-flicks and romcoms, so Christmas is the perfect time to snuggle up with a cheesy romanctic film with my loved-ones.
    My favourite has to be 'The Holiday' with Cameron Diaz and Jude Law, but I also love 'Love Actually' and 'Bridget Jones Diary'.
    The Holiday is my favourite festive movie.
  4. At the top of my Christmas List this year ... :
    There's nothing big or special I want this year. I just would replacements of all my favourite day-to-day beauty products to keep me going.
  5. Favourite Make-up or Nail-Art Look for Christmas:
    Smokey eyes and red lips are a must (Although I'm a fan of the smokey eye all year round)! Red nails are glamorous and festive too.
  6. Favourite Christmas Day Outfit:
    I like to stay in my pyjamas for as long as possible on Xmas Day - although a full face of make-up is essential if any photographs are being taken! Around lunchtime I like to put on a nice frock - usually a LBD - with some black tights and some festive accessories. 
  7. Play Outside in the Snow or Sit Inside by the Fire:
    Both! I love to play out in the snow; build a snowman, throw some snowballs and take some wintery photographs. Afterwards it's lovely to cuddle up inside with hot chocolate and watch a movie.
  8. Wrapping Presents - Love it or Loathe it:
    Wrapping presents is one of my favourite Christmas activities. I love giving gifts and trying to make them look as pretty as possible. I pride myself on my extra neat wrapping ;)
  9. Favourite Christmas Food:
    Lebkuchen! German food is my favourite and my Oma (Grandma) used to send us a big parcel each year filled with all the yummiest treats. I scout Xmas Markets for anything traditionally German to take me back to my wonderful childhood memories.
  10. Favourite Thing about Christmas:
    Spending time with my family. I know I am so lucky to have such a caring, loving and supportive family, so I do feel sad at Christmas time thinking of all of those less fortunate.
So there you have my Christmas favourites. If you decide to do a Christmas Tag also, leave the link in the comments section and I'll be sure to check it out :)

Happy St Nikolaus Tag to everyone in Germany & Holland!
Love & Kisses,

Vicki xoxo

  1. Oh my gosh I remember when the parcels used to arrive from your Oma, they were always stuffed with Christmassy chocolate! It made me wish I had a German granny! Xx
