Christmas meme

It’s about that time…let’s break out the Christmas meme!

1.What do you really want for Christmas but you know nobody will get it for you?

Last year I put “an iPod”. I have one of those now 🙂. This year I’d really like a cosy dressing gown (perfect for cold winter evenings and mornings) and cuddles (I should get them, they’ll just be a bitty delayed) and time with the people I care about (WIN! I have loads of that coming up in the next few weeks!)


2.What do you not want for Christmas but you know that somebody will get it for you?

Unless any of my friends decide to get me marmite or a Paris Hilton biography, we’re fine. I’m pretty easy to buy for I think – I like shiny stuff, fun stuff, food stuff, wine, books, movies….

3.When do you open your gifts (Christmas Eve or Christmas morning)?

Christmas morning, around 9ish. I may have bucks fizz again, because that was genius last year!

4.Do you prefer gifts wrapped or in gift bags?

Wrapped, pleased. I LOVE unwrapping presents!

5.Did you regift anything this year?

I don’t tend to, but many of the chocs and the wine I’ve been gifted will be shared with friends and family!

6.What’s your favourite Christmas movie?

Where to start? ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’, ‘Love, Actually’, ‘Die Hard’, ‘Elf’ and ‘The Muppet Christmas Carol’ all do it for me.

7.What’s your favourite Christmas TV special?

Father Ted & Doctor Who! And on DVD I love the West Wing Christmas eps!

8.Do you like egg nog?

I have never tried it! Is that wrong?

9.Real tree or fake tree, which do you prefer?

As it’s just me and I travel a lot over the holiday, fake. I LOVE real trees though.

10.Would you actually use one of those fireplace DVDs if you don’t have a fireplace?

Hahaha, no. On my tiny 14 inch TV it would look uber-tragic!

11.Are you sick of Christmas music yet?

No, I love the stuff. I have hours and hours of it on my computer!

12.Are you getting up early to wait in line to do some Boxing Day shopping?

Not this year I think – I have plans for a long lie, a long walk, and then ,hopefully, a long evening in the pub with friends 🙂.

13.When was the last time you sat on Santa’s lap?

I actually can’t recall!

Christmas is well and truly on its way 🙂!

    Is this the Christmas meme I wrote last year? It is, isn’t it? Wow. I can’t believe this thing lasted a whole year.

    Is there a Paris Hilton biography? I shudder to think there is. I love Elf! “I just like to smile, smiling’s my favorite!”

    Thank you for commenting on my dog in snow photo! I think it is a little wrong that you haven’t tried eggnog. I like the soynog. 😉

    Good list. Eggnog is so good, but in moderation…

    No, it’s not wrong that you’ve never tried eggnog – it’s yucky stuff 🙂

    One of my father-in-law’s favorite Christmas movies is Die Hard as well. Glad to see your Christmas season is going well!!

    >"And on DVD I love the West Wing Christmas eps!"The missus got me season 5 of West Wing on DVD for Christmas, so we spent a few hours cozy in bed watching episodes.As for Christmas movies, the wife and I always watch "The Ref" before dealing with the family. It really prepares us for the craziness. "Mary, gag your Gramma."
