Christmas Tag!

Hi Guys,

This is my second Christmas post! Writing this really helped me get into the holiday spirit! I decided to do the Christmas tag as you can probably tell from the title. I'm really terrible at intros so let's just get started!

1) What's your favourite Christmas film?
The Muppet Christmas Carol! My family watches it on the first weekend of December, without fail It's still funny, after what feels like the 1000th time. Another favourite is Elf, but after being in the musical, it's kind of lost it's sparkle!

2) Have you ever had a white Christmas?
To be honest, I can't remember one! I must have, though, because there was one in 2010. It was pretty recent too, how did I forget?

3) Where do you usually spend the holidays?
I've never actually spent Christmas anywhere but my house. I think Christmas is a time for family so it just feels even cosier if it's in your house!

4) What is your favourite Christmas song?
Don't make me choose! My sister thinks it's weird that I like 'Underneath the Tree' by Kelly Clarkson and 'One More Sleep' by Leona Lewis. They're not the most traditional songs but I love them! I'd say that my favourites are the first 20 on 'Now That's What I Call Christmas'!

5) Do you open any presents on Christmas eve?
Most people open PJ's but I've never done that: I don't even get pajamas for Christmas!

6) Name Santa's reindeer...
Okay, there's: Dasher, Dancer, Donner, Vixen, Blitzen, Cupid, Prancer and Rudolph. The only one I missed was Comet! I'm actually really proud of myself!

7) Do you have any holiday traditions?
Every Christmas Eve, we walk to our local Costa. It's about an hour away but it's so much fun. It started about five years ago and my family have been doing it ever since! My sister is working on the 24th this year so I hope we'll still be able to make it!

8) Is your tree real or fake?
It's fake. We put it up this morning actually. The amount of baubles we managed to stuff on to it is unreal!

9) What's your all time favourite Christmas food?
Chocolate. Enough said.

10) Giving or receiving gifts?
When anyone does this tag, they always say giving. Of course, I love the feeling of sharing and giving...but! Everyone loves to be given to! I'd say it's a draw!

11) Dream destination to spend the holidays?
Probably New York. Whenever they show New York on TV it always seems so wintry! 

12) Are you good at wrapping?
I'm alright. It's not really my strong suit but I've got the basics down. If I ever want something to look good, I'll always get my Dad to wrap it for me. But remember, if in doubt: stick on a bow! 

13) Do you stick to your New Years Resolutions?
I will have a post coming about this so make sure to follow my blog so you're notified when that comes out!!

14) What makes the holidays special for you?
The atmosphere! It has to be illegal to be unhappy on Christmas day! I'm normally a pretty lively person so Christmas feels like the one day a year where people catch up to me with excitement levels! The amount of exclamation marks I'm using really illustrates my point!

They're all the question's I'll be answering this year. I presume that this is the point that you tag people: anyone who hasn't already, please do this tag! I had a lot of fun thinking about Christmas! Please don't forget to add me to your circles on Google +. Have a great day!

Thanks for Reading

November's Essay...

I haven't been feeling very well this month. I took my first day of school- in a few years- on Monday because of how bad it was. Physically, I had a cold. No, I'm not one of those people! (Side note...) It always irritates me when people have a bit of a sniffly nose and then take two weeks off from school. There's just no need! My moto is: have a bit of lemsip and get over it. I'll drag myself into school practically unconscious with a bus stuck in my side and still plaster a smile onto my face. This month, however, I finally admitted there was something wrong.

A day was spent under a blanket with Gossip Girl on. In the end I put 'After Laughter' on and woke up two hours later, confused, wondering why the music had stopped. Even though I felt awful the next day (I always get massive colds!), I went back into school. That day at home did me good though because it was nice to spend some time resting and not being stressed. That's something that I don't do …

A Zillenial on the Eighties...

Now, let's throw it back to the glorious year of 2004. Shrek 2 was hitting our screens, Jeremy Clarckson was hitting Piers Morgan in the face and Maria Julia Mantilla was being crowned 'Miss World' over in China. I, a bit closer to home, was enjoying the early years of life. However, across the sea 'Bowling for Soup' were releasing '1985': a bop that I would only come to appreciate about twelve years later. The song contains references to many pop-culture focal points that I have never understood... until now! It's time for me to explore the eighties! 

First off is 'Whitesnake'. For the past few years, I've thought that 'Whitesnake' was one person (a rapper or something? I don't know!) but it turns out that they're a band! The were a British hard rock band who rose to fame in the 80s, originally formed in 1977. Another band that I believed to be a single person was 'Blondie'. My friend recently went to see them, althou…
