Day 1; Part 2.

My earlier post was a lot shorter than I had intended and I thought that was pretty poor of me so I thought I’d give you another post.

I thought I’d look around for some Christmas tag inspired posts. Shoutout to for giving me these ideas. Hopefully a bit more Christmas cheer for you guys.

As a kid, did a sibling ever receive a present that you wished was for you?

Hmm. Now that’s a tricky one. I can’t exactly remember us all asking for the same things. I remember asking for ghds for years and my sister got the hair straighteners she asked for and hers could straighten hers wet. However, when I did finally get them, I got diagnosed with alopecia the following month so couldn’t use them. I still have them though and I can use them every now and again so win win.

Be honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?

Before this year, I’d have said receiving. But I can’t wait to see Luna’s face when she sees what she got so definitely giving.

Do you make New Years resolutions? Do you stick to them?

Every year! Although I am hoping that this year will be different. I want to make realistic goals and make a brighter year ahead.

Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?

We always get to open one present Christmas Eve. And it’s funny because I generally know all my presents so I try to pick one I don’t have a clue about. Until one year I opened a game for a console that I hadn’t got yet. 🤣

Do you visit a poor’s people places on Christmas day?

I used to. But not so much anymore. I want to change that when Luna’s a bit bigger. Make some new traditions for her.

Have you ever made a snowman?

Yes! And the last time I made one I sang along with Frozen! Disney is life so I kinda am not surprised.

How many gifts that you received on Christmas?

I don’t know? I don’t make a habit of counting my presents.

How you decorate your house on a charismas day?

Well, we haven’t really been at home when we had one for Christmas so we didn’t see the point in getting decorations. But as soon as we’ve got our own place, it’ll be a different story.

Is your Christmas tree real or fake?

It’s twigs with bulbs? It’s fake. My brother is allergic to them so we go for a more unconventional tree.

Most memorable Holiday moment?

Last year. Bringing Luna home Christmas Eve!

Tell me about a person who makes your Christmas day very special?

I think my mum has always tried to make it special for us. She makes up for so much but we appreciate her. She’s incredible.

Tell me which celebrations you like the most that are the birthday celebration or Christmas celebrations.

Call me vain. Gotta be birthdays, it’s all about me. But Luna’s birthday is more important than Christmas this year so 🤷🏼‍♀️.

Use one noise to describe how excited you are for christmas.


What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year?

Making new ones with Luna. But more to come on them later on in Blogmas!

What is the best Christmas gift you’ve ever received? What is the worst present you’ve ever received? What is your favorite Christmas film? What is your favorite Christmas song?

These will also be answered in future Blogmas posts. Keep your eyes pealed!

What is your all-time favorite holiday food/sweet treat?

Erm probably Ferreo Rocher 😍. I get them every year from my mum. By far the greatest!

What is your favorite thing about christmas?

Spending time with my family! It’s the only time I really see some of them so it’s nice.

What makes the holidays special for you?

Again. It’s family. I’m very family orientated.

What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?

Disney World Orlando Resort, Florida. Don’t know why. Maybe because it’s the most magical place on earth and Christmas is the most magical time. They go well together.

What you like the most you stay in home with your family or traveling with them on Christmas?

Staying in because I know some of them can’t handle travelling.

When do you start getting excited for Christmas?

As soon as Christmas24 comes on my virgin box! I love it. From half way through October through to January it’s the only channel I really watch!

You have been granted one Christmas wish…what will it be?

That every person in my life receives happiness and love around them at this time of year. It’s the most magical but also the loneliest. It’s the time to get people involved. If you know someone whose alone this Christmas, invite them round! No one deserves to be alone this time of year.

So thank you! Thank you for reading and I hope you know a little bit more about me and Christmas time. Merry Blogmas Readers🎄⛄️❤️
