Musings: All Things Christmas – A Q&A

My take on Christmas and life is generally is a mix of irony, banter and just straight hedonism… 

I was kindly tagged by the lovely Katey over at Femenish where she covers beauty, lifestyle and a little bit of everything else. She’s based in New Zealand and I’m insanely jealous that she gets to experience a summery Christmas. One day… 

A Christmas Tag:

1. Favourite Christmas Movie & Why?

BAD SANTA. Probably an anti-Christmas movie but nothing says Christmas like a little criminal activity… Only joking. There is something about this movie I love, is it Billy Bob Thornton or the boy who constantly wants a sandwich? I’m not sure. All I know, every time this time of year rolls around, so does my urge to watch this movie.


2. Top 3 Songs On Your Christmas Playlist?

Mariah Carey – All I Want For Christmas

Destiny’s Child – Silent Night

and whoever sang ‘Santa Baby’ because there are so many versions.



3. Favourite Christmas Tradition?
I’ll just link to some of my tweets instead…

4. What Is On Your Christmas Bucket List?

To wake up on a beach being waited on hand and foot.

5. Buddy The Elf or Ebenezer Scrooge?

I’m gonna go for Ebenezer Scrooge because I cannot stand the Elf movie.


6. Favourite Thing About Christmas For You?
  • The food.
  • Getting some time off to lie in bed and eat said food.
  • Boxing Day sales.
7. What Is One Present You Asked For As A Child, But Never Received?

A Mr Frosty….

8. Do You Have Any Christmas Eve Traditions?

I think my answer(s) to Q3 covers it, but I love going out in Central London because it’s the one night of the year where everywhere is empty.


9. Which Festive Beverage Tickles Your Tinsel?
Mulled wine. Always.
10. Best Present You Ever Received?
 I’m still waiting for it to be honest…
11. Sprouts on Christmas Dinner?


12. What Would be your ideal Christmas?

I would love to spend it abroad with my family, with no one having to cook and complain about who is washing up etc. Basically I just want us to be spoilt.

I’m tagging anyone who reads this because I’m still not convinced anyone reads my blog…

About Me

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up.  I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
