Merry Christmas you beautiful lot!

Rufus, Mark & I would like to wish you lovely people a very merry Christmas! I'm posting this on Christmas Eve because Christmas day is sure to be crazy in the Brown household! I hope everyone gets what they wished for, and I hope you all have a wonderful day surrounded by the people you love. See you in a few days! x x x

Rules Answer all ten questions below, make sure to add The Christmas Cracker Tag logo (above) somewhere in your post, tag as many bloggers as you like to do the tag, comment on the blogs you have tagged to let them know!

One: What’s on your Christmas list?
I don't really have a Christmas wishlist, with my birthday being December 1st I usually ask for anything I want then :) I'm excited to see what I get though!

Two: What’s on your Christmas Day agenda?
For the first time in a few years we're all staying at home, my brother Zach and my brother Josh and his family are coming round for presents and dinner so I'm really excited to have a more relaxing version of Christmas this year!

Three: How much Christmas shopping have you done?
I shop throughout the year because I have so many people to buy for, I always aim to be finished by December because there are so many birthdays in my family at this time of year too.

Four: What’s been your biggest ever surprise gift?
I have an awful memory but last year Mark got me tickets to the Harry Potter studio (I promise to post the photos in the New Year finally!!) and I was so surprised and excited! Even the letter I got saying I was going to the tour was so exciting to me haha, I'm such a Harry Potter geek and I've made Mark one too now.

Five: When do you usually put up your Christmas tree?
It's tradition in my house for it to go up on my birthday, December 1st! Though I think it went up on the 2nd this year because on the 1st we were at the Harry Potter studios :)

Six: Do you have a special outfit planned for Christmas Day?
I'm not entirely sure this year! Half of the day is inevitably spent in pjs because it takes so long for all of us to open our presents!

Seven: Do you have any plans for Boxing Day?
Usually each year for Christmas us and all of our family friends have dinner together in our hired out village hall. We eat, sing Christmas carols and have a lovely time together. We're doing it on boxing day this year instead!

Eight: When did you stop believing in Father Christmas?
I have no idea!! But I'm still managing to keep my little sister Indigo convinced that he's real, she's 5 in January :)

Nine: What’s your favourite Christmas scent? (Candle/Perfume)
I love the smell of cinnamon but find it a bit strong in a candle!

Ten: What do you love most about Christmas?
I have three whole weeks off work and I'm spending time with my family and friends, and soon Mark too. I love Christmas because I get to see everyone and eat delicious food and even drink a Baileys or too (chocolate flavour this year!).

I'd like to tag anyone who'd like to do this, I know I'm a bit late with it though!!! Enjoy your day lovelies :)

  3. Your little hamster is so adorable, I have 3 little winterwhites at the moment, can't get enough of them! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas x

  4. Hannah,

    What a super-sweet post, I love hearing about all your plans for Christmas - I do hope you had a wonderful time with your brothers yesterday and that you have a relaxing day today (unless you have plans to shop the sales, in which case, good luck!!) Only a few more sleeps now until you can see Mark again, so that's definitely something to look forward to!! Oh, I adore the photo of Rufus (one of my favourite names ever!), so lovely.

    I am always completely blown away by the comments you leave me so I knew I had to mention something here as I didn't want to not let you know just how much they appreciate them. You are one of my biggest supporters of the year and for that I am entirely and wholeheartedly grateful - it means the absolute world to me. You put so much time into everything you write on TT, it always blows me away, and I have to say this morning I had tears in my eyes when reading your latest two because I just felt so lucky to be gifted such beautiful, kind words. You are an absolute star. Thank you Hannah. Oh, and In answer to your question about Eric, no, we haven't taken him to the lakes, but it's a possibility that 2014 will be the year it happens!

    The happiest of 2014's to you. May your days be merry and bright....
