    Morning :)

    I think Roses just about have the edge over Quality Street… My favourite chocolate from Roses is the hazelnut caramel one, favourite from Quality Street would have to be the green triangle!

    Since I’ve been living with my boyfriend, we established a tradition of putting the tree up on the night of the Late Late Toy Show! However this year I won’t be at home on the actual night, so it’ll be going up over next weekend at some stage.

    After Christmas dinner, we normally go out visiting relatives (once we’ve come out of the food coma!). Christmas night, we’d watch TV though, and I’ll have a glass of Baileys in hand. :)

    I normally get up at around 9 or 10 on Christmas morning these days. I don’t have my own family yet, so no kids waking up at the crack of dawn! And I’m lucky enough to have a Dad who looks after the entire Christmas dinner so I can have a lazy morning! : )

    Ha! Yep, dinner is normally around 2 and the early evening is spent visiting. Always a relief to get home and flake out though! (And get into the Jammies!)

    I am a fairly careful wrapper - not perfect but i try my best :)

    Favourite part of the dinner would be either the sausage meat stuffing, or the potatoes roasted in goose fat.... Drooool!

    Favourite Christmas film has to be Elf! I'm going to see it in the Sugar Club next week, can't wait!

    My earliest Christmas memory is finding a toy shower for a Sindy doll under the stairs. Rather than becoming suspicious of any Santa related shenanigans, I just went to my mother and made enquiries as to whether or not I could have it!

    My favourite Christmas memory... Getting a Sindy shower! Ha! I think any memories from childhood are all mixed up in one big ball of excitement and anticipation. The relief of waking up on Christmas morning to realise that Santa had been!

    My favourite Christmas tipple is Baileys, with lots of ice. Yum!

    I have a fairly generic Christmas jumper, red with white snow flakes. I bought a better one about two years ago and promptly lost it! If I remember correctly it had a penguin skiing on it. I think I have a pic, I'll have a look! : )

    Describe your perfect Christmas eve.

    What are you hoping to find in your stocking this Christmas morning?

    White lights or coloured lights?

    Do you have a crib/wreath or both?

    Is there any part of the Christmas dinner that you'd happily leave out?

    What is your favourite Christmas television advert?

    Did your mother let you have the Sindy shower or did you have to wait until Christmas?!

    :)

    My birthday falls on Christmas Eve, I think it might be one of the reasons I'm so mad about Christmas!

    My idea Christmas Eve would be no work (although to be fair I usually only ever have to work a half day). I'd open my birthday presents then go for brunch with my fiancé and stuff my face! Then we'd head out to Swords and I'd spend some time with my parents, and go visit my Nanny. Have something lovely for dinner (probably from the Chinese takeaway!) Then that evening, I'd meet up with friends in a local pub, drink wine and listen to Christmas songs!

    I just sent on a list of "suggestions" to my other half today - hopefully some of them will end up in my Christmas stocking! I think I'm quite an easy person to buy for - any sort of make up or beauty products and I'm happy as Larry! Some of this year's suggestions are Dermalogica products, the new Urban Decay palette and some bits and bobs from Benefit!

    I'm actually gonna be singing carols in a choir with work this year, we'll be singing at a Christmas market in Dublin! I wouldn't mind going to a carol service though - I must look into that!

    We have white lights in our house, but the rest of our decorations are a mush match of all different kinds of colours!

    I actually don't have a crib or a wreath - I'm a show! I would love a wreath so I must see if I can pick one up!

    I'd have to leave the brussel sprouts out of the Christmas dinner! Everything else can stay!

    It's a tough one but I think the old school Penney's advert is my favourite - for the jingle alone!

    I *did* get the Sindy shower! I ended up being given it for my birthday!
