    My favourite christmas memory from childhood is going in to town to see Switzers window and the street traders on Henry St.

    I would have opted out of christmas day when I was younger but now I love it all.

    Not really but once we all get through it safely I will be happy.

    Do you cook Christmas dinner at home or do you go elsewhere? What's your favourite part of the dinner?


  • Moderators, Education Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 18,860 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Moonbeam


    We will drive to Cork for a huge big family christmas dinner:)
    I cooked dinner once but that because i was too pregnant to travel!

    Christmas pudding is my favourite bit of the dinner:) and all the people sitting around the table happily chatting.

    Do you listen to Christmas FM?

    Do you have a favourite Christmas song?

    Any festive tunes that really grind your gears?

    If Christmas dinner main course could only consist of 2 things, what would they be?

    A tiny bit of ice cream on my pudding. I can't really eat dairy products so it is a tiny amount.

    A lot of my decorations got lost,I had a "cheeky charlie" that I loved,my best friend got some personal decoration made for it and I love them too.

    I have 4 January babies so Christmas and christmas eve had changed alot over the last 5 years:) Usually the kids have a bath,put on their christmas pjs ,watch a christmas film with me,then we leave the food out for reindeer and Santa.
    The kids go to bed with a story.
    This is when we need to start assembling toys and when I make a mess with water and carrots because reindeer are really messy eaters!!

    It was called Christmas:) who could resist?

    The kids leave letters,drawings,treats and a drink out for Santa,D wrote her 1st letter this evening in fact!

    The elf on the shelf keeps an eye on the kids and their bedrooms coming up to christmas,he moves around our house keeping an eye on them. I love the excitement christmas eve when every noise they hear must be santa and they are trying to go to bed all evening because they are so scared that santa wil not come if they are awake:)
    Then of course christmas morning when they get their presents,seeing the huge smiles and the excitement:)

    I have a Rudolph hoodie,complete with antlers and bell bought in Pennys last year:)
    The kids have grown out of theirs so will need to replace them this year.

    1) When do you put up your tree?
    2) Do you to church or anything around Christmas time?
    3) If you could invite anyone, living or dead, to your Christmas dinner this year, who would it be?

    :)

    The tree usually goes up the week before Christmas but only because I try to make it a family event .
    Not unless I have no choice and he is playing music there .
    I am adopted so I think it would be amazing to have my family there .

    What would be in your time machine selection box?

    Modern LED or traditional shaded lights on the tree?

    Do you have a crib?

  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 26,589 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Posy


    Are there any films that aren't specifically festive that you watch every Christmas?

    Do you prefer Christmas eve, Christmas day or Stephen's Day?

    If Mr. Moonbeam won the euromillions, what extravagant gift would you want from him for Christmas?

    I love the toy show:)last year I had to buy a new TV to watch it because ours broke in October but I was not bothered but could not miss the Toy Show! It is the only thing I watch on RTE.
    I have always watched the toy show,they fell asleep last year.
    Yes,we have chrsitmas stockings in grannys house and at home.
    The little girl and santa in the cornflakes ad is so cute and reminds me of my 2nd girl.
    We go to the concert hall to see The Snowman every year since D was born but no other traditions yet.

    Moonbeam! I'm so sorry for the late questions.

    Feel a bit bad for it.

    What's your favourite Christmas tradition?

    Describe your average Christmas Eve/Day?

    What's the most important thing for you at Christmas? Family, food, religion etc?

    What do you feel people sometimes overlook when it comes to Christmas?

    Cheers :)
