|Fairytale of New York |
(Kirsty MacColl and Shane MacGowan)
2) Favourite Christmas film: A film that can be quoted by myself and my family all year long without growing old, is one to remember: 'Elf' will be a family favourite until I have children.
3) Favourite Christmas song: The Pogues blessed us with the 'Fairytale of New York' that I discovered seemed to be the only exception allowed for profanities in our household; it brings a smile to our faces each year.
4) Favourite Christmas food/drink: A personal, and admittedly common favourite food at Christmas would be mince pies - no chance of having spares left over in our household.
1) Favourite Christmas book: a tough choice, but my favourite Christmas book is the The Grinch Who Stole Christmas - you can't go wrong with Doctor Seuss.
2) Favourite Christmas film: Love, Actually hands down. A wonderful, hilarious film filled with a myriad of quirky characters and just lovely to watch at Christmas time - plus with an incredible cast. One of the greats - easily.
3) Favourite Christmas song: 'Fairytale of New York' by The Pogues - great song. After that, the usual classics: Slade, Wizzard, maybe a bit of Buble.
4) Favourite Christmas food/drink: What to choose? There is so much choice! Torn between mince pies, devils on horseback and pigs in blankets; they're all amazing.
5) Best/worst Christmas gifts: Probably something amazing when I was younger - if not a phone. The worst, shampoo.
1) Favorite Christmas movie: Love Actually, because of how completely different plot stories are skillful intertwined to have dramatic, funny and happy moments. I also love how the non-romance love stories are also included as well as the romantic ones. I shows many different perspectives and experiences all culminated in a dramatic and happy ending.
2) Favourite Christmas song: The Pogues’ ‘Fairytale of New York’, is my favourite Christmas song because its content is more like real life that a romanticised, unrealistic version of Christmas and it hasn’t got the mainstream, repetitive sense that other Christmas songs tend to have.
3) Favourite part of Christmas: Probably eating too much at Christmas dinner, especially the pigs in blankets, and obviously opening presents seeing people’s reactions to the bad ones.
4) Best and Worst Christmas presents: The best Christmas present I have ever received was probably a guitar a few years ago because it meant I learned a new instrument properly. The worst was probably an itchy Christmas jumper.
