Estelle from letmegoxo tagged me to do The Christmas Tag and since there is just less than a week till Christmas there couldn't be a better time to do it.
What are you up to Christmas Eve?
Well this year I'm working on Christmas eve but after I'll probably get something to eat with my family, head to Christmas mass then come home and watch The Polar express. We also open one small present that evening just to get into the festive spirit.
Who do you spend Christmas day with?
Usually in the morning we see some of my aunts and uncles from my dads side then come home and eat the greatest meal ever with mam, dad and my sisters. We chill out for rest of the evening then later go and spend time with my mams side of the family.
Do you enjoy giving or receiving gifts?
I love giving gifts. I think it's so nice to see someone else be happy with what you picked out for them. Receiving gifts isn't all that bad either though. Who doesn't like getting presents?
What does your outfit consist of on Christmas Day?
For christmas I think it's really nice to dress up. Not all out fancy but something nice. I usually go for a dress or skirt and a nice pair of shoes. This year I ordered a monochrome split sleeve dress from Boohoo.com which I am so excited to get. I'll probably match it with a pair of black wedges as well.

Do you enjoy shopping for your loved one's gift?
Now to be honest I do and I don't. I like going down when I have ideas of what I'm going to get people but sometimes I have no clue what to get and then I get frustrated. This year was actually a lot easier and I have all my shopping done. Hopefully everyone likes their gifts.
Have you ever received a gift you disliked and pretended you liked?
I don't think there is anything I have gotten that I really didn't like. One thing I get a lot are the little gift sets with different shower gels and body butters which are always usually left in the box. Oops.
What would your ideal Christmas be?
One Christmas I would love to visit New York. There is something so nice about New York at Christmas and I love to go and see it for myself.
What's your least favourite thing about Christmas?
Coming closer to the actually day when your in town is kind of annoying just because people are crazy and rushing around trying to finish their shopping. Don't get me wrong sometimes it can bring great Christmas spirit but some people can be rude running around thinking they are the only people looking for present.
What is the best gift you have ever received?
Oh goodness, this is actually a really hard one because I always get such nice presents! Although a few years ago I got tickets to Westlife's last concert and considering I have loved them since I was about 5 years old it was pretty exciting.
If you could choose one person to spend Christmas day with who would it be or why?
I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a celebrity or something but I'm just going to give the most obvious answer and say my family. I love spending it with my family because everyone is always in high spirits and it's just one of the best days.
It was really fun to do this tag as it really puts you in a festive mood.
and anyone else who reads this and wants to take part.
Till next time.
