15 Festive Favourites

The lovely Louise from Confesstionsofasecretshopper tagged me to do this, so here I am being all festive - the only thing missing is a Christmas Tree, twinkling lights and some mulled wine, but hey ho.

01. Favourite Festive Food
I love a proper Christmas roast and I even like Brussell Sprouts and would quite happily eat them all year round. I also love Christmas Pudding with Brandy Sauce, Mince Pies but really really detest any Christmas cake which has marzipan on it - rank!

02. Favourite Reindeer
Vixen - Rudolph gets far too much publicity for my liking, so I am choosing Vixen to be my fave!

03. Favourite Day of Christmas
10 Lords are leaping - I always cackle when it gets to that bit meaning I am either drunk, can't remember the words or someone got it wrong!

04. Favourite Christmas Song
The Pogues with Kirsty McColl - Fairytale of New York. Such a classic. Just add into the mix, I cannot stand Mariah Carey, all I want for Christmas is not you Mariah, or your high pitched wailing, thank you!

05. Favourite Present
Well as I got Married on Christmas day in Vegas, I should be saying my husband, I didn't have one before I got married and haven't had another since, so he is quite unique.

06. Favourite Festive Film
Santa Claus the Movie, ELF, Bad Santa, Home Alone and it isn't Christmas without a bit of National Lampoon

07. Favourite Festive Cracker Toy
I once got one of those handy keyrings with a screwdriver, scissors, tweezers and mini corkscrew on it which was quite handy, I haven't got it now, but it was probably the best thing I ever got.

08. Favourite Cracker Joke

How does Good King Wenceslas like his pizzas?

One that's deep pan, crisp and even!

09. Favourite Christmas Decoration
The Angel which sits on our tree, it belonged to my Nanna who sadly passed away a few years ago.

10. Favourite Christmas Candle Scent

I haven't got any Christmas scented candles - that needs to be recified! I do have a bit of a thing for Yankee Candle Midnight Jasmine right now though.

11. Favourite Christmas TV Advert
well it isn't christmas until this advert comes onto the telly! Even now I still get excited when I first see it and then everytime after

12. Favourite Festive Tradition
We always open a present at midnight, more to celebrate our wedding Anniversary than anything else and I really love doing it.

13. Favourite Place to Spend Christmas
As long as I am with Beautykinguk, I am happy wherever I am and doing whatever we do. As we have no small people, we have just ourselves to please, unless we are visiting family.!

14. Favourite Christmas Fact

All the gifts in the Twelve Days of Christmas would equal 364 gifts!

15. Favourite Snowman Accessory

It isn't a snowman unless there is a carrot for a nose - fact!
