As it's Christmas Eve, I thought it would be the perfect time to do the cracking Christmas tag. This tag was created by Becc4blog and Nina so be sure to head over to their blogs to read their answers.

Weirdest family Christmas tradition?
Unlike most families, as soon as you wake up, you can go down, collect the presents with your name on and open them. We don’t sit around the tree and watch each other open them.

It's Christmas Eve, what are you doing?
For the past 2-3 years, I’ve been working and this year is no exception but prior to having a job in hospitality and retail, I would spend the whole day in my pyjamas watching Christmas movies and stuffing my face with whatever food isn’t reserved for Christmas day.

Top 3 Christmas dinner components?
Roast potatoes

When do you decorate your house? November, the beginning of December, the week of Christmas?
Usually a week or two before Christmas. Whenever someone has a day off and fancies going out to our cold garage and digging around for the box of decorations.

Loved and loathed Christmas songs?
I LOVE Darlene love – Christmas and I HATE Band Aid – Do They Know Its Christmas.

One big present or lots of little things to open?
I prefer lots of little presents, it's nice when you can see the thought that’s gone into each gift. As my birthday is on boxing day, I usually get big presents then.

What is your favourite Christmas decoration? (Include a photo if you have one)
My favourite Christmas decoration is this red stocking that we hang on the fireplace that has little mice which sing, “we wish you a Merry Christmas” when you press them. Unfortunately, I don’t have a photo but I'll put one up on my Instagram story or get a shot for my feed at some point over Christmas.

Do you like to have a themed tree or one with a bit of everything?
We’ve had themed trees and a bit of everything trees. I personally prefer a tree with lots of baubles, no tinsel or beads and a classic angel at the top.

Christmas pudding: yay or nay?
I’ve never tasted Christmas pudding before but it looks pretty rank. I’ll stick to my New York cheesecake or angel cake thanks.

What's at the top of your Christmas wishlist this year?
At the top of my Christmas wishlist this year was an Olympus Pen, but if you follow me on Instagram then you’ll have seen that I treated myself to one two weeks ago. So now, I have nothing at the top of my Christmas wishlist. Though, if Santa would like to chuck a Macbook down my chimney then that would fill me with a lot of joy as my current laptop is on its last leg.

What Christmas traditions do you have in your family?
