Christmas This Or That!

 I have done so many Christmas tags over the years and always struggle to find new one's but after doing an Autumn This or That it gave me the idea of finding Christmas this or that's and making my own list of questions.

Snowy window

Real OR Fake tree?
I like my fake tree, I can't be doing with the faff of a real one but I do have a real one growing in the back garden which I reviewed a few years ago.

Star OR Angel on top of the tree?
We have a star on ours but we did have an angel for many years. I don't actually know where it went.

White lights or colored lights?
I'm not too fussed as long as they're not flashing. Flashing lights give me a headache.

Christmas Jumper OR Christmas PJs?
I love my Christmas pj's. I always get the 4 of us matching one's, this year we have the Grinch one's from Primark.

Elf OR Home Alone?
Home Alone. Watching it makes me feel like a child again.

Mariah Carey OR Michael Buble?
Mariah Carey! I love Michael Buble's songs but it's his face that I can't stand. He always looks so smug. I know, he's probably a nice guy.

All I Want For Christmas Is You OR Last Christmas?
All I Want For Christmas Is You! I love a good sing and dance to it.

Decorate Gingerbread House OR Bake Christmas Cookies?
A gingerbread house. Every year my girls used to decorate a gingerbread house and then they decided they are too old for them but I have thought stuff them, I have already bought myself one to decorate. lol

Shop online OR In store?
Mostly online but I do like a look around the shops in the run up to Christmas, especially in shops where you can't shop online like Primark and B&M.

Give OR Get?
I like to give presents more than get them. I love choosing what I know people would love and seeing their faces when I surprise them.

Wrapping paper OR Gift bags?
Gift bags for friends and family but wrapping paper for the kids.

One big present OR Lots of small presents?
I like lots of small presents. The more the better. hehehe

Christmas Away OR Christmas At Home?
Christmas at home! We did Christmas away a few years ago and as lovely as it was I much prefer being at home being able to eat when we want and do what we want.

Christmas Eve OR Christmas Day?
I think Christmas Eve is better than Christmas Day. Yes I like to see the girls open their presents and I love Christmas dinner but it's always over in a flash.

Snow OR No snow?
Snow please. I think we have only had a few white Christmases in my lifetime. We're not going anywhere so a big pile of snow would be most welcome.

Christmas movies OR Christmas songs?
It depends on my mood. If I am having a cosy, lazy day Christmas movies but while I'm pottering around the house Christmas songs.

Mulled Wine OR Hot Chocolate?
Hot chocolate with squirty cream and marshmallows.

Hot chocolate and marshmallows

Christmas Dinner OR Leftovers?
I love the leftovers. I think making the Christmas dinner on Christmas Day puts me off eating it. Later on in the evening I have another plate full and really enjoy it and the next day too.

Pigs in Blankets OR Stuffing?
Stuffing! It is one of my favourite things about Christmas dinner. I always get a few different flavours.

Brussel Sprouts OR Roast Parsnips?
Roast parsnips. I love them! I could easily just eat a plate full of roast parsnips.

After Eights OR Mint Matchmakers?
After Eights although the kids always drive me insane with them, leaving the little pouches and eating the chooclate.

Candy Canes or Chocolate Coins?
Chocolate coins! They taste different from normal chocolate, there's something special about them.

Quality Street OR Roses?
This is really hard because I love some of both and I'm not keen on some of the others. I think I would have to go for Quality Street just for the Coconut Eclair!

Christmas Jumper OR Christmas PJs?
Christmas pj's. I have a few sets already and wear them all year around. I certainly get use of them. 

Dress Up For Christmas Day OR Pyjamas All Day?
PJ's all day for us. We used to dress up but it's more relaxed being in my pj's.

What would you choose for Christmas?


  1. Are we just the same person or what?! Haha. I love Home Alone and make everyone watch it every year.
    Flashing tree lights is also a no as I get headaches and I over do it with the roast parsnips every time, I love them!
    Lovely pic of Becky and Ellie decorating their gingerbread houses. xx

  2. I can just see you with family in your cozy home wearing matching PJ's and watching Home Alone. Let the merriment begin!

    Ae this fun and nothing beats coding up with a Christmas movie X

  4. Hahahaha 😂😂 I’m still laughing about Michael Buble’s face! I loved reading this. We have many of the same preferences.

  5. This was such a fun post to read and I agree with so many of your answers. I started typing a comment last night and then it just seemed to vanish so I hope I didn't accidentally post it on another post by mistake? But anyway we too have fake trees and I can't ever see myself going back to a real tree again. I was just telling my husband over the weekend that I was thinking of getting a gingerbread house kit for myself since I do miss seeing one on our table and the boys no longer want to work on one.

  6. This is such a fun post. I would have answered similarly many times. xx
