Christmas with Beth
Just over 1 week until Christmas now, is everyone excited? I am! So whilst in the Christmassy mood it's time for my next Christmas guest post. This week it's with the gorgeous Beth from Alphabeth. Be sure to check out her blog, it's one of my absolute favourites and I know for a fact you will all love it too.
Time to see Beth's lovely Christmas photos and her answers to my questions.
1. What is most important to you about the holidays?
I think the most important thing to me is just spending some quality time with friends and family, especially because I now live away from home so I don't get to see my family as often any more!
2. What is your favourite Christmas tradition?
Hmm, that's a difficult one! My family don't really have Christmas traditions as such but one thing I do really enjoy is putting up the Christmas tree, though I wasn't around to help out with that this year.
3. What are you doing for the holidays this year?
This year my whole family are going over to my aunt and uncle's house for Christmas dinner which we've done for the last few years now. We then normally stay there until quite late in the evening, drinking and chatting and watching all the various Christmas specials on TV. Then I think we're going to spend New Years up in the North Coast which I'm really excited about!
4. Will you dress up for Christmas Day or wear comfy clothes?
I normally try for a happy medium. I might make an effort with my hair and makeup but then just dress quite casual, though In an ideal world I'd probably stay in my PJs all day!
5. When do you start to get excited for Christmas / feel 'Christmassy'?
Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas, but I have to admit, I'm not the world's most Christmassy person. For a few years in my teens I actually really wasn't that fussed on Christmas at all, it was just another day of the year for me, but I've started to appreciate it again as I've gotten a bit older- weird I know!! These days though I normally don't feel particularly Christmassy until really late on Christmas Eve!! Don't judge! haha.
6. What's at the top of your Christmas list this year?
At the minute I'm saving up for a DSLR camera which I've wanted for absolutely ages so hopefully I'll get some money to put towards that.
7. What is your all time favourite Christmas song?
'Fairytale of New York' by The Pogues!! Such a classic.
8. What is your all time favourite Christmas movie?
Not a very original answer but I love love love 'The Holiday' and 'Love Actually', though whenever I was reading Kirsy's post she said one of her favourites was 'Beauty and the Beast: An Enchanted Christmas' and it reminded me how much I love that film.
9. What is your favourite Christmas meal / treat?
Selection boxes. They're actually quite high up on my list of the best things about Christmas in general!
