Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?
I've never had a real tree! I'm not even sure where I'd go to find a real tree where I live, I'll have to look into it one year just for the experience factor. I do love my fake tree though, I bought it about three years ago and always look forward to getting it out; it's a 6ft tall bushy green number- it's amazing.
You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick up?
It's not often I find myself in coffee shops unless I'm with a friend who really wants to go in. I'm not a huge fan of hot drinks and hardly ever have them (diet coke is my vice!) Probably a hot chocolate or caramel latte.
What's your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?
The last few years I've done my tree in bronzes and golds to match the neutral decor of my living room, but my mum does hers in pale pinks, silver and fluffy white baubles and it looks so pretty I definitely prefer it to mine. I wanted to switch up all of my decorations this year but sadly the tree has taken a back seat where there's a million other things to do with moving out.
Giving or receiving?
Both! I love choosing out gifts for people, I absolutely love creating custom hampers filled with things I know the person will really like. I do still like receiving presents too though, very much!
To mince pie or not to?
A dry old crusty mince pie doesn't do it for me, if you're going to have something sweet then it might as well be something with chocolate right?
What's your traditional Christmas lunch?
Always turkey. Doesn't everyone have turkey for Christmas dinner?! It's my favourite meat anyway so it suits me fine. My mum always sneaks a couple of brussels sprouts onto my plate every year and they always end up being chucked away- those things are evil.
Christmas day fashion
Pyjamas, dressing gown, fluffy socks and no makeup- dressing up on Christmas day just isn't an option for me. I usually get all dressed up on boxing day and go out in the evening though, which is always fun especially if you have new makeup and new things to wear.
What's your favourite Christmas song?
As soon as the old classics by Wizzard and Slade are on I start feeling festive. I also love The Pogues Fairytale of New York even though it's probably the most depressing Christmas song ever!
What's your favourite Christmas film?
I don't really watch films (people think I'm weird when I tell them this) so I don't have a favourite Christmas film. Maybe I'll try watching a few this year, let me know if you have any recommendations.
Open presents before or after lunch?
Before! I struggle to believe that anyone is patient enough to wait until after lunch to open their presents. Even at twenty five I get far too excited about treats under the Christmas tree, it's bad enough waiting until the big day to crack them open let alone prolonging it even further.
