Christmas quiz

Happy Monday to you!

I hope your day got off to a good start and the bad weather hasn’t hampered any plans you may have had? Today is the first day in a long time that I’ve had no plans in the diary so I’m looking forward to a lazy kinda day, maybe pottering around tidying up. Anyone else get the urge to ‘Spring’ clean right before Christmas?

I love hearing about other peoples Christmas celebrations so I’ve compiled a fun list of 12 questions for you. Just copy and paste the questions at the bottom of this post and leave your answers in the comments below. If you’re a blogger – write a post and leave a link below. I look forward to reading your answers and I hope you enjoy reading mine, too. Do join in, won’t you!

1. When do you put the tree up?

Usually, the weekend closest to 1st December, but this year it went up on November 24th :) Hubs and I both have a crazy schedule right now, and it was the only weekend in a long while when all the family were together on the same day!

2. Real tree or artificial?

Artificial, and it’s huuuuge! We’ve already had to chop it down a little because it was too tall for our lounge. I love my tree and can’t ever imagine having another.

3. What is your favourite Christmastime treat / snack / noms?

Just one? Oh my goodness, I have so many! Do they still sell those little paper-wrapped Neopolitan chocolates? I love those!

4. Tinsel. Yay or nay?

No way, José. I hate the stuff!

5. Do you hang mistletoe?

Yes, but I couldn’t find any nice sprigs this year that didn’t cost the earth. Instead, I’ve bought a lovely felt mistletoe and have it hanging above my office door. It’s like a toll-bridge :)

6. Favourite Christmas tipple?

Baileys on ice. That is so Christmassy to me.

7. Most difficult person to buy for?

In-laws. Help!

8. Do you dress up for Christmas Day?

I like to be presentable because of all the photos that will be taken throughout the day (damn you, smart phones!), but since I’m responsible for all the cooking this year, I think I’ll keep it casual then sneak off to change before dinner is served.

9. Favourite Christmas food?

My mum’s homemade pickle onions and Christmas cake. Nom. Oh, and pickled walnuts. Have you tried them? They look pretty weird but are amazing. I love them at Christmas time with some mashed potatoes, peas and cold meat leftovers. Yum!

10. When do you open your gifts ?

I like to wait until everyone is gathered round and open them all together. In reality, most get opened around breakfast time because the kiddos are too excited.

11. What is on top of your tree?

Um, a stuffed felt dog with antlers. Don’t judge me.

12. What do you want for Christmas this year?

A Canon 18-200mm lens would be awesome since I dropped my last lens *sob!*, some Real Techniques make-up brushes (particularly the foundation stippling brush), and a FitBit .  Oh, and Photoshop Elements for Mac! Please and thank you :)
