    Good morning one and all and happy Monday.

    So the Toy Show has been and gone. Time is flying in. The neighbors seem to be catching up with the rest of us enthusiasts and there are now only 3 Mondays to Christmas.

    This week we are joined by the lovely hollister11. Great brand name and great poster.

    So let's kick off. Quality street or Roses? Do you buy the RTÉ guide at Christmas?

    Roses defiantly. My favourite sweet of them all.
    I always get the rte guide, the hunt for this year's starts today.

    Normally Roses , but I'm boycotting Cadbury as since they've been taking over they have gone down hill replacing milk chocolate with inferior choclate, pulling out of the fair trade deal and so on.

    Hollister11: Fake tree or real?

    It used to be real, but I have noticed in recent times years that they lost the "Christmas smell". We were disappointed with the last few real ones we bought, so it's been artificial ones for the last 3 years.

    Favourite Christmas Movie

    Multicoloured lights, my favourite. We even got ones that play music this year. Definitely Brussels sprouts, favourite part of the dinner.

    My favourite Christmas movie. That's tough either home alone or the grinch.

    Early in the morning. Like 8. Even though my younger brother and I range from 16 to 21, our parents still get us up early.

    I don't ink what ever beer is avaliable. Likewise with nibbles Pringles, kimberley and Mikado biscuits. Roses, quality street.

    Wrapped. Definitely, wouldn't be the same otherwise.

    What's your favourite decoration in your house?

    Our crib. It was my grandparents, which they bought in the 60s, my mum still has it and it's used every year.

    How would you rate your wrapping skills? 1 being handing presents over in the bag you bought them in and 10 being an extravaganza of perfectly folded, symmetrical paper, topped with ribbons, glitter and other festive accoutrements.

    Do you have a favourite Christmas advert?

    Tinsel- love it or hate it?

    Which do you like best: Christmas Eve/Christmas Day/Stephen's Day?

    The coke or the corn flakes one. I haven't seen them at all this year.

    I love tinsel, it's a necessity.

    Christmas Eve, the build up, anticipation and prep is just so good.
