The Ultimate Christmas Meme

Christmas?!  It’s come round quickly this year, hasn’t it?  Thank you TheBoyandMe for tagging me (again)!

1.  The Christmas song I can listen to even in June is…

Last Christmas by Wham.  Sad, I know.  But I LOVE it.

2.  Hot chocolate, egg nog or mulled wine?

Hot chocolate, definitely.  The other two make me want to be sick!

3.  When do you put your decorations up?

Hmm…  IF we stay in Lagos for the holiday (only twice in the last 5 years), we I put the tree up in the second week of December.  We don’t usually put any other decorations up.  It just feels a bit strange when it’s so hot outside!  No decorations or tree this year!

4.  What are you having for Christmas dinner?

We arrive in Dubai at about five on Christmas morning – so not sure what the dinner plan will be.  But it will probably be take-out!

5.  What’s your favourite Christmas tradition?

We don’t really celebrate Christmas.  However, when we (the family) all lived in London (pre-marriage) we always had a tree.  We always bought each other presents and put them under the tree and my mum always made Christmas lunch.  I loved that we always waited until after we’d had lunch before opening our presents.

6.  Have you ever gone carol singing?

No.  But I did enjoy singing Christmas carols at school!

7.  When did you discover the truth about Santa?

I think I always knew that he didn’t *really* exist.  But I couldn’t understand how things came to be in my stocking when no one had been home that evening.  Maybe he does exist?

8.  How do you decorate your Christmas tree?

I don’t put tinsel or lights on our tree.  I put mini-Santas on it, candy canes, tiny presents wrapped in red and green with little gold ribbons and a couple of reindeer.  I definitely need to get some more decorations for it – it usually looks a bit bare!

9.  All I want for Christmas is…

I haven’t really thought about it yet!

I’m going to tag:


And, anyone else who hasn’t done this yet! (Sorry – got some blogs to catch up with!)

  1. Nope… No lights. The electrics can be quite dodgy. Power surges, no power, hardly any power. You get the idea!I don’t really get the Christmassy feeling here – it’s too hot and dusty!
