Christmas Tag!

Oh Hey! 
December is upon us which means Christmas soon!!!!
Nothing better than to do a Christmas tag :)

What time of year do you start your Christmas shopping?
Now I'm one of those people who leave presents to the last minute! (worst habit ever). Though this year I have already managed to get my brother something already but I'm on the lookout for something for the parents now.

Do you have any festive recipes for food or drink you limit solely to the Christmas season to share?
 In my house we don't so much have any certain 'festive recipes' or 'drinks' for Christmas. I always am excited for having turkey though!!! Its defiantly a fav of mine during the Christmas period. 

Tell me how Christmas goes down in your home..
Christmas is so different from when I was younger! I used to have a personal Santa stocking that sat at the end of my bed and I used to wake up so early Christmas morning and open all the presents that Santa delivered.
These days we wake up between 8-10am and then have breakfast which is usually croissants and jam! (oh so good!)  Then we sit by the Christmas tree and take turns (My dad, mum, brother and myself) opening presents. We don't really see any extended family so we then start to prepare dinner. Christmas dinner is probably the best part to be honest! We pop Christmas crackers put on the dickie hats and eat until we weigh twice our original weight. Now i'm hungry...... 

Do you have any Christmas traditions?
No not really.

 Do you have a favourite festive coffee?
 No, I'm from Australia so it's usually pretty hot during Christmas and coffee really isn't our first choice..

Do you have a favourite Christmas song?
I have two favs which are covers!
Last Christmas - The Collective
All I Want for Christmas - Michael Buble

What do you do on Christmas Eve?
When I was younger during Christmas eve in our town Santa drives around on the back of a fire truck throwing out lollies to all the kids as he drove by... Now that I'm older I just watch ;p
Then I just usually watch what ever Christmas movie is on TV.

What's your Christmas wrapping strategy? Do you have a strategy?
 When I wrap it looks like a 2 year old did it.. and yes I'm that annoying person who uses WAY to much sticky tape.

What's your dream gift this year?
I already have most of what I want so i'm not really fussed.

Describe your Christmas tree. How tall? Real or artificial? How is it decorated?
Mine is artificial and is about 5'4. Our tree is just a mess of everything which I love! First I cover it in lights and tinsel then put decorations all over it. We have old wooden ordainment's, balls, and decorations that my brother and I made when we were younger.
There is this one decoration I made in primary school out of cards that has the bottom half of a naked baby Jesus.. Makes me laugh every time!

Do you decorate just the tree or other areas of your house e.g. windows, bannisters?
 We usually pop a few lights around out side and put decorations in our windows but that's about all!

What do you wear to Christmas parties and what do you wear on Christmas day?
I've never really attended a Christmas party, and on Christmas day I just wear whatever I fancy on the day :)

Feel free to do this tag yourself!
