VlogmasBlogmas: Christmas Blogmas Tag + Giveaway

Thank you to Steph for the Christmas Tag nomination. We do love a good tag and what a perfect one to fit into our #VlogmasBlogmas posts!

What is your favourite Christmas film?

Home Alone

The obvious one, we know, but you can't beat it! Oddly enough, James hadn't seen it until last year. Jessica had to put that one right, and I'm sure we'll be watching it at least once before Christmas comes around this year too!

Have you ever had a White Christmas?

I can remember one Christmas, it was quite a long time ago so I can't tell you the year or anything like that. I just remember opening the curtains and being so happy that it was snowing!

Where do you usually spend your holiday?

Either at home or at my Grandma's. We tend to alternate and this year we are having my grandparents round, made even more special by being able to share my first Christmas with Jessica!

What is your favourite Christmas song?

Santa Claus is Coming to Town. Although I love a lot of them. Check out our Carpool Karaoke video which very much proves that...

Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
For James it has always been tradition to open all of the presents on Christmas Day morning. Jessica however has a tradition to open them as soon as the clock strikes 12 on Christmas Eve/Day. We're not sure what we'll end up doing this year yet!

Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?

Rudolph, Dasher, Dancer, D... yeah that's it.

What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year?

Not so much a tradition, but Christmas lunch/dinner is of course the best part of Christmas! Pulling crackers, telling awful jokes and getting excited because your nail clipper is the best thing that came out of anybody's cracker is quite something.

Is your Christmas tree real or fake?

It has always been real, but Mum has been rumouring a fake one this year which I am not happy about! 

What is your all-time favourite holiday food/sweet treat?

ALL FOOD. Do you not know us?

Be honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?

Definitely giving gifts! I love to watch people's reactions and a good smile is all I need to make me smile even more!

What is the best Christmas gift you’ve ever received?

My Macbook Pro from my parents two years ago has been my companion ever since!
What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
It's not about where it is for me, as long as I'm surrounded by the people that I love, I'm happy.
Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably?
Funnily enough, I have just finished wrapping Jessica's presents, and although they're not perfect, I'm very proud of myself! But yes, normally, I fail miserably.

Speak for yourself James, I am amazing at wrapping!

Most memorable Holiday moment?

I guess you could say spending Christmas in Australia is memorable, seeing tinsel on palms trees and sweating buckets definitely leaves an impression.
What made you realise the truth about Santa?
What are you talking about?

Do you make New Years resolutions? Do you stick to them?

I find it natural to set ourselves goals, actually remember in the beginning of this year, we sat in Golborne Deli, discussing our personal goals, blogging goals and general couple goals - that would be fun to read over and create a new one in the coming year. 

What makes the holidays special for you?

Spending time with family, eating great food and looking back on the past year with hope for the new one about to come!

  1. You guys have to be some of the most generous bloggers I know, always running giveaways!! Thank you for another chance to enter, that cuddly Christmas plush is adorable!

    Christmas in Australia sounds amazing - love the idea of tinsel on palm trees! I'm actually allergic to real Christmas trees (it's like being allergic to fun haha) so it's always a fake one in our house!

    Thanks for sharing!
