Blogmas Day 16: Christmas Q & A with Midnight Madness & AllLadyA

It’s my third and final group of bloggers who have been lovely enough to answer questions for Blogmas so I can share what Christmas means to them too! While you can check out the first and second instalments today I have Georgia from Midnight Madness and Alix from AllLadyA make sure to check out their blogs too!

What are you most excited about this Christmas?

Georgia:  I’m the most excited about spending time with the people I love the most! Hyped to see my family, who I don’t see often as I moved out for university & also for travelling to Los Angeles to see my long distance boyfriend of over two years who I haven’t seen in four months! 

Alix:  Being with my family and Christmas dinner! 

What’s at the top of your wish list?

Georgia:  On the top of my wishlist is a camera tripod & a ring light. I have a youtube channel (Midnight Madness) & it’s so hard to film without a proper set up! Also books are always nice 🙂 

Alix:  This year, it’s actually getting a job. I’ve been unemployed for a little while so a little Christmas miracle in that department would be incredible. A more materialistic wish is the Apple Pencil! 

Favourite Christmas movie?

Georgia: Polar Express – I know, not very mainstream, but it reminds me of my childhood when I lived in Greece, and Christmas for me is the best time to spend with family and talk about stories from the past, remember certain feelings, so I always watch this on Christmas!

Alix: It’s a tie between Love Actually and The Holiday. 

Favourite Christmas song?

Georgia: Favourite Christmas song would be probably Mistletoe by Justin Bieber haha, I have some really funny memories with this song from my pre-teen years so it makes me really happy! 

Alix: Fairytale of New York – The Pogues

Favourite Christmas food?

Georgia: My favourite Christmas food would be gingerbread cookies for sure

Alix: My grandad’s roast potatoes. I know they’re not exactly “Christmas food” but for whatever reason that’s when they taste the best and it’s not Christmas without them!


Your perfect Christmas in 3 words.

Georgia: Perfect Christmas in three words: snow, cocoa, movies

Alix: Family, food & fun

 

Blogmas Day 5: Christmas Q & A with Adell & Nate!

I really wanted to make Blogmas about the community so for today’s post I have Adell & Nate answering questions about what Christmas means to them! Don’t forget to go and check out their blogs too!

 

What are you most excited about this Christmas?

Adell: Going around my nan’s and tucking into her Christmas roast. It has been a tradition for my entire life but I still love it!

Nate:  I’m excited to experience Christmas at Disneyland (California). it will be fun to be working in the parks and help others have a wonderful Christmas.


What’s at the top of your wish list?

Adell: I’d love to get a drone but those are just so expensive, but realistically I would be overjoyed to receive a new camera lens. One more to add to my small collection.

Nate: A nice steak dinner

Favourite Christmas movie?

Adell: Home Alone! Although I do watch a lot of Harry Potter movies in the run-up to Christmas.

Nate: The Santa Clause

Favourite Christmas song? 

Adell: All of the classics!!! But seriously I love ‘Merry Christmas Everybody’ by Slayed. It’s one of those songs I just belt my heart out too, a family favourite as well… so here it is Merry Christmas, everybody’s having fun… (I’ve got this stuck in my head now haha).

Nate: Hallelujah by Pentatonix

Favourite Christmas food? 

Adell: My nans roast on Christmas Day! A favourite snack of mine is Lebkuchen Stars. These wonderful little biscuits are from Germany, and let me tell you they are delicious. They have a soft consistency and they are sweet and spicy at the same time. They’re also coated in iced chocolate, I adore them.

Nate: 

Hot cocoa


Your perfect Christmas in 3 words.

Adell: Family, Food, Snow

Nate: With loved ones.
