The gorgeous Alli from Mum 2 Four tagged me in this Christmas Meme, I know I am a day late but it is still the Christmas break, I wont tag anyone as we are past the Big Day but do join in if you would like to.
So here are my answers to The Ultimate Christmas Meme:
1. The Christmas song I can even listen to in June is…
If you have read my last post you will know it’s Bing Crosby’s White Christmas, truly beautiful.
2. Hot chocolate, egg nog or mulled wine?
I have never tried Egg Nog or Mulled Wine, both in my head sound horrible, but to be honest I don’t drink either so that also maybe why, but I do LOVE a Hot Chocolate, not just at Xmas either.
3. When do you put your decorations up?
I was always taught to be a traditionalist and do the 12 days, but this past few years to get me in the spirit I changed my mind and I always get them up the 1st week in December before my birthday on the 6th.
4. What are you having for Christmas dinner?
My Christmas has 4 meals, one of the joys of separated families.
Christmas Eve, I cook for my MIL and family, she loves my Shepherd’s Pie, so I do that with all the trimmings and will bake a cake.
Christmas Day – My Mom’s will be Roast Beef (yummy) as we have Turkey at Thanksgiving (Mom’s American).
Boxing Day – AM late fried Breekie courtesy of my Stepmum, PM extended family have a huge party and we all bring dishes, as we are from all over the world its such a feast.
5. What’s your favourite Christmas tradition?
It’s sad but we don’t really have any, we had them as children but since moving out not so much, as both my kids are tiny and do not understand Xmas yet we haven’t made any, my Hubby likes us to open a present Xmas Eve Night but that shall not happen as we can not afford presents to each other this year.
Hopefully as the children grow we shall start some.
6. Have you ever gone carol singing?
Yes – god knows why as I can’t sing, but always did as children.
7. When did you discover the truth about Santa?
Santa is real, but he gets the Mummy’s and Daddy’s to bring the gifts as he is so tired, that’s right isn’t it. I found out quite young due to family issues, but it never lost the magic for me as I made sure my Brothers and Sister did not find out till they were older.
8. How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
I have different trees, the Kitchen has a little Pink Tree with Kitsch and Cute Dec’s.
The main tree is white lights and traditional wooden dec’s and balls etc, no Tinsel here I am afraid.
10. All I want for Christmas is…..
To be able to have somewhere to house my children in the New Year and to make this a Happy Family Christmas.
