Blogmas Day 1!

This is my first post in my little blogmas series! I am so excited to be doing this this year as I always watch the vlogmas videos on youtube! Anyway.. I was tagged by Robin to do this tag and seeing as I am OBSESSED with everything to do with christmas I decided to complete it! 

Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic? 
Every year since I was little we have bought a real christmas tree on the first weekend of December. This has become some sort of tradition for us. I also love the smell of a real tree!
You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick up?
At the moment I am loving the Honeycomb hot chocolate from costa. 

What's your favorite color scheme for decorating the tree?
We don't really stick to a scheme in our household. I always decorate the tree every year and just put on the decorations that we have bought for a certain reason/occasion first then fill the spaces! We go for the mismatch element ;)

Giving or receiving? 
Giving most defiantly. I make things for my family and get so excited to be able to share them with people! 
To mince pie or not to?
I love mince piesssssssssssss! My brother is also a big fan of them and eats them all year round. They are a big deal here in the uk!
What's your traditional Christmas lunch?
Turkey, Potatoes, Broccoli, Brussel sprouts, Parsnips and Stuffing. The whole lot. 

Christmas day fashion
I usually wear either something that I have bought prior to christmas or if I am lucky enough to be gifted anything in the morning then I will wear that. I love a good christmas dress! 

What's your favourite Christmas song?
Jingle Bells or Let it snow!

What's your favourite Christmas film?
At the moment I am loving Arthur Christmas. But my old favs are the grinch and elf! 

Open presents before or after lunch?
 In the morning once everyone in the family are awake,(There is a lot of waiting for my brother to wake up and come downstairs).

I am not going to actually tag anybody in this but feel free to complete it and let me know your replies!
