Fifteen Festive Questions Tag | Blogmas Day 4

So I’ve been feeling really festive at the moment (well, it is December now) and I decided that I would answer the questions to the ‘fifteen festive questions’ tag, started by Tom Fletcher on Youtube. I think this tag is really cute and a bit of Christmas is always what I want to feel.

 What is your favourite...?

1. Festive food
I would say that my favourite festive treat is a warm mince pie. I think they are really yummy and every year me and dad make our own and they’re always really special.

2. Reindeer
So I thought this question was so cute, but I can’t come up with which would be my favourite. I think Prancer sounds cute, but Rudolf is a classic so I will just have to say that I love them all equally.

3. Day of Christmas
Ever since I was in reception, and I had the grand job of holding up a sign with it on, it’s been ‘5 golden rings’. It’s defiantly the best lyric, which is why everyone normally sings it with so much.

4. Christmas Song
Such a difficult question! Michael Buble’s Christmas album plays on repeat in my life at Christmas, I’ve already listened to it over 20 times and there’s still a while to go before the exciting day!

5. Christmas Present
I don’t know if this means the type of present or the best present I think I’ve ever had. I love getting Christmas presents that aren’t generic and show some thought, but I also love receiving bath stuff/ chocolate. My favourite Christmas present from last year was my camera (nikon coolpix camera l310) which I use all the time for photography and taking my blog photos.

6. Christmas Film
This question is such a personal one because there are so many great Christmas films but everyone prefers different ones. I would say my top three are Elf, Scrooged and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. They are my family’s favourites and are the three that are always on the top of our lists.

7. Christmas Cracker toy
Now I have interpreted this in my own way because I think it’s the paper hat. I love that a simple tradition can persuade a whole family to wear a bright paper hat and the special feeling it holds. No matter what age you are, or who you are, everyone in joined in wearing this crown.  

8. Christmas Cracker joke
Why did Santa's helper see the doctor?
Because he had a low "elf" esteem!

9. Decoration
I love decorating the house, and my room especially, at Christmas time. The tree is the best thing, but I don’t really class the tree as a decoration, more of an essential! My favourite things to put in my bedroom are my cuddly Santa claws toy I won in year 6 and my twinkly fairy lights. Hopefully I will also be doing a Christmas room decorations video this month!

10. Candle scent
My favourite Christmas candle has always been my ‘traditional Christmas’ scented candle from Homesense I bought last year. Sadly it’s just run out now, so I’m going to have to find a new Christmas scent. If any of you have any recommendations, please let me know in the comments!

11. Christmas advert
My favourite Christmas advert of all time was the John Lewis advert a few years ago with the two snowman. Not lying, I cried at it on more than one occasion. I love the way it promoted the message of going out of your way to make someone happy, so festive!

12. Festive Tradition
Recently a big family tradition around Christmas has been a big family board game competition. I love it because we arnt all gathered around the telly, and it’s great because we make our own fun. I feel so happy at those times and it’s always a huge laugh!

13. Place to spend Christmas
Weirdly I would say not at home. I love Christmas with the family, but it’s definatly better at one of my grandparents houses because it feels a lot more special having to travel for Christmas! I don’t think I’ve ever had a Christmas away from family though, I really couldn’t imagine what it’s like!

14. Festive Fact
I found this one online and I thought it was funny- most of Santa’s reindeer have male-sounding names, such as Blitzen, Comet, and Cupid. However, male reindeers shed their antlers around Christmas, so the reindeer pulling Santa’s sleigh are likely not male, but female.

15. Snowman accessory
Isn’t it obvious? It has to be the carrot nose! Every snowman has a different fashion sense; some wear hats, some wear hats, some wear not much at all. The carrot is what makes every snowman joined, and I like the idea that when the snow melts an animal/ creature gets a winter treat of a carrot for tea. Plus, Olaf was always overjoyed with his nose when he got it!

And that’s all of the questions. I want to tag everyone who wants to do the tag, comment your links down below and I’ll read and comment on them. I think it’s such a fun tag and the questions are really fun, I hope your day is full of festive joy,

Social networking-


  1. I agree with not spending Christmas at home--we go into the city to visit relatives! We leave at 6am and get home at midnight. There are a lot of presents and food during the day, but those were the best times. It's a lot of rushing around, but it's so much fun and it's the one time of the year where we get to see everyone we left years ago. (:

    I had no idea about reindeer, though. Females. Wow. Whooa.

    Thanks for sharing your answers! (: I'll opt out of doing them, I feel like the non-US questions are stretching me a bit thin, and there's been a lot of them of late (I know, I'm so uncultured! Well, not really, just not as comfortable with the ideas as I'd like to be). I do appreciate the read, though! Anything to get me into the spirit! ;)

  2. Thanks Kiera! I know the reindeer thing suprised me too! I loving seeing family friends on Christmas, it makes it more special, right? Lydia Eve x
