01. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS FILM?
Christmas With The Kranks (because it gives me the best festive feelings EVER. It is everything a Christmas film should be) & The Polar Express. I’ve always enjoyed The Polar Express but this year I have fallen completely in love with it!
02. HAVE YOU EVER HAD A WHITE CHRISTMAS?
I’m 100% sure I have. Especially when I was younger, but I would absolutely LOVE a proper white Christmas. You know like you see on the movies? Especially now we have Teddy, he would be in his element. It would make it so much more magical.
03. WHERE DO YOU USUALLY SPEND YOUR HOLIDAY?
At my mums house! My immediate family all go there for the day and I wouldn’t ever spend it another way. It is my absolute favourite thing ever. Being surrounded by my favourites, the constant laughter and all the food. It’s so relaxed and happy.
04. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS SONG?
The Pogues “Fairytale Of New York”. Easy. Nothing else comes close. Last Christmas by Wham is second.
05. DO YOU OPEN ANY PRESENTS ON CHRISTMAS EVE?
No, never. We were never given the option as kids LOL. Open presents on Christmas Day and that’s it. I suppose the only exception to the rule now is Christmas Eve boxes but only Teddy has one of those. TYPICAL.
06. CAN YOU NAME ALL OF FATHER CHRISTMAS’S REINDEER?
You guys are about to see something REALLLL special. Rudolph, Dasher, Prancer, Dancer, Donner, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Blitzen. I didn’t even need to google those. BOOM.
07. WHAT HOLIDAY TRADITIONS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS YEAR?
Just being surrounded by family. Especially now Teddy is so much older. I am excited to start the whole leaving Father Christmas a mince pie, drink & a carrot for a reindeer (like we did every Christmas Eve when we were younger). I absolutely can’t wait for Teddy to be old enough to run downstairs & check if Father Christmas has been!
08. IS YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE REAL OR FAKE?
Fake, i’d probably kill a real one. I would absolutely love a real one next year though. I need read up on how to keep one alive first.
09. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE HOLIDAY TREAT/FOOD/SWEET?
My favourite savoury item is pigs in blanket. All damn day. Sweet wise? Just all the chocolates. Celebrations, Heroes, Quality Street. Come at me.
10. BE HONEST, DO YOU LIKE GIVING OR RECEIVING GIFTS BETTER?
I’m gonna be one of those twats that says.. BOTH! I absolutely love buying people presents and seeing their reaction to them. But I also LIKE being surprised with something that someone else has put thought into.
11. WHAT IS THE BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT YOU’VE RECEIVED?
A Barbie kitchen & jeep when I was little. Bloody loved Barbie. I also got bought a doll that cried and smelt like white chocolate.
12. WHAT IS YOUR DREAM PLACE TO VISIT FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON?
LAPLAND. I have been to Bruges over Christmas and it was magical but there’s something about Lapland that really gets me excited. I would love to take Teddy when he is older.
13. ARE YOU A PRO-WRAPPER OR DO YOU FAIL MISERABLY?
I’d say i’m pretty pro. I mean I don’t go to town with ribbons and fucking foliage, but I can wrap a present the normal way pretty damn well.
14. MOST MEMORABLE CHRISTMAS MEMORY?
The last Christmas when my Grandma was alive. For obvious reasons. but on a more light hearted note, I remember me & my brother getting bikes for Christmas, they were under the tree and in their own big sack-thing, and we legit pretended we had NO idea what was under them. Like we couldn’t guess buy the size & shape.
ALSO last year, my first Christmas as a parent. It was perfect and surreal.
15. WHAT MADE YOU REALISE THE TRUTH ABOUT FATHER CHRISTMAS?
WHAT DO YOU MEAN THE TRUTH?
I heard my Mum & Dad taking the presents downstairs. I’m still heartbroken and I’ve never forgiven them.
16. WHAT MAKES THE HOLIDAYS SPECIAL FOR YOU?
The whole atmosphere of Christmas & just being around family. I love making our home cosy and festive. I love how everybody gets excited together and enjoys the celebrations.
