The Christmas Blogger Interview - Twinderelmo

Next on my Christmas blogger interview is one of my blogging besties, Beth who writes at

1 Do you have any family Christmas traditions?

We kick off Christmas with putting the tree up just before Charlie's birthday and a trip to the pantomime has become part of the build up. Everyone usually comes to ours on Christmas Eve for a takeaway and everyone goes to bed in new pjs.

2 What’s your ultimate Christmas movie?

I love Home Alone and Charlie too has fallen in love with them. It reminds me of being young and my sister watching them on loop thanks to her crush on Macauley Culkin!

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

A Fairytale of New York as it always reminds me of my Dad belting it out in the car as kids! I also love Do They Know It's Christmas and Slades Merry Christmas. I love the old ones

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

Online all the way for me but my sister and I always have an annual trip at the start of November as she's old school and likes to go to the actual shops so that's the only time I really go.

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

I never make a list, totally just wing it and buy as I spot stuff.

6 Do you send Christmas cards?

Oh definitely. This year I've sent some from the girls to their nursery classmates too.

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

No luckily we've got away with it but I've friends who do it and it sounds far too stressful!

8 Do you have chocolate advent calendars or something else?

We still have chocolate advent calendars but they've not seemed that bothered this year so I might not bother next year.

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

No I don't do them. I like to save all the gifts for Christmas Day as we once let Charlie open a present on Christmas Eve and it occupied his complete attention so his attention was diverted on Christmas Day!!

10 Do you make any gifts?

I am the worst crafter EVER so for everyone's sake I don't embarrass myself.

11 Do you do any Christmas crafts?

Assembling a gingerbread house was about as crafty as I can muster

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

Pigs in blankets, turkey and (controversially) Yorkshire puddings. I could have Yorkshire puds with any/everything

13 What’s your favourite festive tipple?

Not very festive but I'm all for prosecco by the bucket full at Christmas!

14 Where are you spending Christmas this year?

At home. My Dad, Gran, sister and brother in law are coming for lunch at ours and I'm sure other relatives will pop in on the day too. My husband absolutely loves cooking for everyone (genuinely- crazy fool!)

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

My Dad always raves about the German markets but can I say Disney just so we can go back?!

  1. We also love Home Alone, and a Fairytale of New York is the best Christmas song ever! I haven't been near one of the spooky elves either, but Beanie was begging for one after a lot of her classmates were telling her about their magical elves. Got away with it for another year, phew!
