Wishing you a Merry Christmas
What’s your earliest Christmas Memory?
Staying at my grandparents' house for Christmas, with my younger sister and parents. Their house was in a small circular 'Place' that had a grassy area with trees in the middle. This year we had snow - sooo exciting for us kids! - and I remember looking out the bedroom window and watching for Santa to land in the snow outside. It was like looking at a mini forest just feet away and the snow seemed to increase my belief that I would see Santa. But, sadly, I didn't!
Do you have any special Christmas Traditions?
Not now, although my grandparents did. Like the coins hidden in the Christmas Pudding which, miraculously, all ended up in the children's portions.
What’s your favourite festive carol or song?
Do you have a favourite festive film?
Love is All Around
What’s your favourite festive read ?
A Christmas Carol - of course!
Are you organised or do you leave everything until the last minute ?
Oh dear, I have to admit that these days I'm a last-minute type of person. Didn't used to be, but find it harder these days to plan ahead. Story of my life
Christmas Tree – real or artificial?
Real - I hate the dropping needles but love the smell!
Tinsel or Glitter?
Gingerbread Latte or Orange spiced Hot Chocolate?
You know, I've not tried either! Does this mean I haven't lived?! Both sound yummy so if anyone would like to make me one I'd be happy to try
Mince Pie or Yule Log?
Probably mince pie served with brandy cream
Christmas Dinner – Traditional Turkey or something Different?
Turkey every time
Christmas Tipple – Bucks Fizz/Mulled Wine or something stronger?
Bucks Fizz, please. Cheers!
A fun game of after dinner charades or more chocolates and the television?
We're not a 'charades' kind of family so it's likely to be messing about with the children's toys or watching television.
Will try to avoid the chocolates
