The Christmas Tag

[image- weheartit]
I've seen this tag on a couple of blogs recently and have really enjoyed reading them. Since I'm not feeling very Christmassy at the moment, I thought i'd do it to get me in the mood!

1. What is your favourite thing about Christmas?
My favourite thing about Christmas is Christmas day, all my family get together and go to my Gran and Grampa's for dinner. It's so nice having all the family together at once, there's usually about 14 of us all round the table!

2. What is your favourite makeup look for the festive season?
I love the usual bright red lips at Christmas time, its so festive! However, recently I tried a smoky eye makeup look Tanya Burr did a tutorial on using MAC's Club and Cranberry eye shadows and I absolutely loved it, its my new favourite! You can watch the tutorial here.

3. Real or fake tree?
This year we have a fake tree, but we've had a real tree before and I prefer them because they're more traditional. The only downside is that they're a bit of a pain when all the needles fall everywhere!

4. Giving or receiving presents?
Giving! I love Christmas shopping for my family and friends and seeing how excited they get when they open their gifts. Receiving gifts isn't too bad either though ;)

5. Do you open your presents in the morning or evening?
I open presents from my mum, dad & sister in the morning and I usually get dragged out of bed at 7am because my mum's so excited!! Then later on, after dinner we open presents from the rest of the family when we're all together.

6. Handmade or bought Christmas cards?
 I'm not really a fan of cards, but homemade ones are much more thoughtful. I'm so bad - I don't give out Christmas cards to anyone!

7. What is your favourite Christmas film?
Since I was a wee girl my favourite Christmas film has always been Miracle on 34th Street, I still think that's the real Santa in it.

8. What is your favourite Christmas food?
There's so many Christmas food's I like! I love anything that has brie and cranberry on it and on Christmas Day my Grampa makes an amazing paté that I love eating with Cranberry sauce. Ok, I'd say Cranberry sauce is my favourite Christmas food!

I tag everyone! If you do/have done this tag please link me it below :)
