Favourite thing about the holidays:
I love the Christmas Holidays! One of my favourite things has to be moving back home from university, to see the family and family friends. Also, I don’t say no to the cooking and company!
Favourite holiday tradition(s):
Our one ‘tradition’ that I like doing, is visiting family & friends on christmas eve to deliver their presents! I really enjoy this because some years, we don’t get to see certain people until Christmas Eve – so it’s great to finally catch up with everyone!
Favourite holiday decor:
I basically love every bit of christmas decorations! Tinsel, lights, ceiling hangers, just everything!
Although, I love all of them – I don’t think it would be christmas without candles and our coal fire being lit!
Favourite holiday food:
There’s nothing better than Christmas Dinner, mainly as I don’t eat too many ‘Sunday Roasts’ throughout the year – so that makes me ridiculously excited for Christmas Dinner! They ALWAYS has to be trifle, as that’s my favourite desert!
But, on the christmas theme, I love it when my mother makes gingerbread biscuits and mince pies (although, I have jam instead – as I don’t like mince pies!)
Favourite holiday movie(s):
I have two completely different films, which I’d say have a genre for themselves. The first one would be Jingle All The Way – I loved that film when I was younger and I watch it over and over, all year round! The second one is a definite classic – Meet Me In St Louis, it’s a film that makes me feel so homely. It reminds me of family, especially my grandfather who I miss a lot. It’s such a beautiful classic family film, with really catchy songs! If you haven’t seen it, then you must!
Favourite holiday song(s):
This is a hard one! I have so many favourite christmas songs – classic ones and the more modern. One of the newest songs would be Coldplay – Christmas Lights, it’s so beautiful and makes me well up every time! Then, for the mainstream christmas songs, I would say either Elton John’s ‘Step Into Christmas’ or Shakin Stevens’ ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’! And lastly, for the classics, there’s a few artists more than songs, I will be listening to Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland and Doris Day on repeat!
