The Christmas Blogger Interview - Bamm Boo

Next to be interviewed on my Christmas Blogger series is Beth from

1 - Do you have any family Christmas traditions?

Loads! We rarely spend Christmas day at home so the build up for Christmas is really important to me. We have an activity advent calendar and we do a christmas themed activity on most days in December. We usually put up a very small tree early in December and put any homemade decorations on it as they are made.

2 - What’s your ultimate Christmas movie?

I would have chosen Miracle on 34th street but we watched Home Alone a few days ago and my almost 8 year old was in total hysterics so I think that’s going to be a firm family favourite.

3 - What 3 songs would be top of your festive playlist?

Mistletoe and Wine, Last Christmas and Fairytale of Newyork

4 - Are you an online shopper or do you go to the actual stores?

I really love going to the stores at Christmas, I love the hustle and bustle and all of the beautiful decorations but for practicality I mainly shop online

5 - Do you make shopping lists or buy things when you see something nice?

I have lists of lists! Although, this year I seem to have bought a lot of random things so I need to get it all out and decide what I still need to buy

6 - Do you send Christmas cards?

No - I say it’s because I’m being kinder to the planet but mainly I’m far too lazy. I love receiving them though even though it makes me feel a bit guilty for never sending them

7 - Do you have an elf on the shelf? What do you do with it?

No - I think the advent stuff is plenty to do.

8 - Do you have chocolate advent calendars or something else?

We have ‘Advent Activity Jars’ - I put an activity, a piece of chocolate or a toy in each jar. I tried to get out of it last year because we moved house mid-December with a 6 month old and a 7 year old but my oldest was desparate to still do it.

9 - Do you do a Christmas eve box? If so what’s in it?

Yes - although it isn’t actually a box - it’s a bag. We put new PJs (not necessarily Christmas themed just nicer ones than I may buy anyway; a new Christmas themed book; and bath toys/smellies. The main aim is to encourage the kids to go to bed!!

10 - Do you make any gifts?

I often sew some of my gifts. One year I only gave homemade gifts to my 11 nieces and nephews but that made it all a bit stressful so now I sew if I feel like it!

11 - Do you do any Christmas crafts?

Yes, I usually get my son to make something for his grandparents. Last year we decorated mugs.

12 - If you could only eat 3 things from your Christmas dinner, what would they be?

Roast potatoes, pigs in blankets and christmas pudding

13 - What’s your favourite festive tipple?

Mulled wine

14 - Where are you spending Christmas this year?

We’re having a big Christmas party with my side of the family just before Christmas and spending Christmas day with my inlaws

15 - If you could go to any Christmas market in the world where would you go?

I have no idea! I used to really like Manchester Christmas Markets when we lived there. I think the Uk are pretty good at doing Christmas markets and I wouldn’t particularly want to travel abroad too close to Christmas - it would be nice to have some snow though!

Thanks for taking part Beth. You can find her blog on the following social media channels:


  1. Lovely post. I would have Last Christmas and Fairytale of New York on repeat up until Christmas if my family would let me :)

  2. I love reading about other bloggers. The advent activity jars are a great idea!

  3. My favorite xmas movie is Father Christmas. I've always liked it and think its great x

  4. Fab interview. I tend to shop online, but I did go into town this year and actually really enjoyed wandering around the shops, although I wish I had someone with me to carry my bags!
