It's day #12 of the 12 Days Of Christmas Blogging Challenge, the last day, yay! Today's topic is movies and music - a good one for Christmas Eve I think as this is the day when I really immerse myself in all that is Christmas, especially the music and movies which I love to watch on this day every year. Last night we had a little family 'party' night where we listened to Christmas songs and watched The Grinch - one of my favourite Christmas films, Jim Carey plays the part really well. For Christmas I try to make a real thing out of movie nights, something I probably should do all year round (one for the 2015 bucket list maybe!), I was really looking for an excuse to use my pretty little star shaped dishes, I'm in love with them!
It really wouldn't be Christmas without some drinks and tasty treats, Prosecco and Ferrero Rocher for me! Isn't Tyler Lee Frozen 'champagne' the cutest thing ever?! It's actually sparkling apple juice and he loves it.
My favourite Christmas movies are - How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Elf, Love Actually (the film I went into labour whilst watching, it also doubles as a Valentine's Day film for me) and The Santa Clause - one I watched every year as a child. I also can't forget The Snowman and the newly updated The Snowman and the Snowdog, not strictly films but it wouldn't be Christmas Eve without watching them. I'll be watching all of these over the festive season.
My favourite Christmas songs are the classic, kind of cheesy ones which make me remember the magic of Christmas anytime I hear them. They are "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday" - Wizzard, "Last Christmas" - Wham!, "Walking In the Air" - Aled Jones and of course my all time favourite (which shouldn't really be a Christmas song by anyway!) "Fairytale of New York" - The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl, it wouldn't be an Irish Christmas without "Fairytale of New York"... I just had to go and listen to it right now while writing this post. Enjoy for yourself and I wish you and yours a Merry Christmas!
"So Happy Christmas, I love you baby, I can see a better time, when all our dreams come true..."
