December 5th – A Christmas Tag

December 5th

As if my magic I have been tagged to create a Christmas themed post – very convenient for Blogmas! I was tagged by Louise over at Mindful Millie who asked the following seasonal style questions*

Whats your favourite thing about Christmas?


Food and time off work.

Food, time off work and an excuse to wear party dresses!

What movies do you like to watch at this time of year?

My favourite are the various versions of A Christmas Carol – with the Muppet one being the best, followed by Scrooged with Bill Murray and then the musical – Scrooge – with Albert Finney

I defy you to not feel Christmassy after watching this!

I have been recommended a film called ‘Bernard and the Genie’ which stars Lenny Henry, and is all but impossible to find.  Maybe I need to petition the BBC.
I will, however, most definitely, not being watching Elf, because it just annoys the pants off me!

Do you have a favourite Christmas song?

Do I ever! There is a whole 5 of them here – on my #TuesdayTunes link – and I will be adding 5 more tunes every Tuesday until Christmas.
Although, it is no secret that ‘Wonderful Christmas Time’ by Paul McCartney is the greatest Christmas song of all time.

Do you have a Christmas tradition?

We have the ‘Advent Tree‘, who is currently lounging in the kitchen while I make some room in the actual lounge…

We have our Christmas Eve Tradition of new PJ’s and a Hot Chocolate Station – which I will be blogging about later in the month.

And the grand tradition of planning NEXT Christmas by buying currently too big clothes for the boys for next year…

Do you have a Christmas outfit?

Not generally, but I currently have a lovely blue dress which had an outing at a Christmas do last weekend, and will be worn on Friday for a Works party…I must get some more photos and may update this post as I get some.


*It also called for a new header, and while I was going for enigmatic, I feel it looks more ET!


So how about you? I am supposed to tag people, but I am so slow to do these Tags that everyone has probably already done this or shared their answers online somewhere else.  If you feel like answering them though, let me know in the comments!

Would really like to know more about everyone, so let m know your answers.
