One of the best things about blogging so far has been connecting with other bloggers and entrepreneurs. It’s always a joy to be given a shout-out, asked to guest post, or invited to participate in an activity. As a new blogger, it’s been particularly rewarding as it definitely helps me to build my confidence and keep going when my motivation drops. Recently The Yorkshire Dreamer tagged me to participate in a Christmas Tag. Definitely go and check out this lovely Yorkshire lasses’ content!

The Original Questions
1 – When do decorations go up?
I usually put the decorations up a week or two before Christmas. My birthday is at the end of December, and growing up we usually didn’t put decorations up until at least 2 weeks before Christmas, and that has stayed with me as an adult
2 – Who is the Scrooge in your family or friendship group?
I wouldn’t say anyone is a scrooge but if I had to give it to anyone I’d probably say me. I like aspects of Christmas but it’s a tough time of year for me with my parents gone, being on my own, and three family and animal bereavements around the holidays.
3 – If money were no object, how and where would you spend Christmas?
I would spend Christmas either at Disneyland or in New York City, and treat myself to lots of presents and pampering.
4 – What Christmas film do you HAVE to watch every festive season?
The Snowman. For as long as I can remember I have watched The Snowman every year, and it is just not Christmas without it.
5 – Who do you find hardest to buy presents for?
I’m great at wrapping presents but I’m rubbish at buying them. I tend to rely on wish lists and hints from friends. There are only a handful of people I can buy for easily.
6 – Would you rather buy lots of little presents for a hamper, or buy one big/ main present?
I think it’s much more fun to buy lots of little presents.
7 – What did you leave out for Santa when you were a child?
I used to leave out a mince pie for Santa and a carrot for the reindeer. I think I used to leave out a glass of milk or something stronger as well.
8 – Where did you spend last Christmas?
I spent last Christmas alone in my apartment in Vancouver
9 – Which Christmas song makes you cringe?
Mistletoe & Wine by Cliff Richard. It makes me cringe, but it also makes me smile because it brings back memories of my mom who was a big fan of Cliff Richard.
10 – If you could be a character in a holiday movie, who would you be and why?
Bridget Jones isn’t an obvious holiday movie necessarily but I would be Bridget because I am like her in so many ways. Or I would be Iris, the heartbroken British woman in The Holiday who goes to LA for the holidays. If you combined Bridget and Iris you’d get me to a large degree.
Yorkshire Dreamers Questions
1- What is one festive tradition you do every year?
I always buy or make at least one new Christmas decoration, usually a tree decoration, every year.
2 – Would you rather have a white Christmas or spend Christmas in a warmer climate?
I’d rather have a white Christmas but I think it would be fun to experience Christmas somewhere hot one year.
