My Answers: 

  1. My favourite thing about Christmas is being with my family on such a special day. 🙂
  2. My favourite memory would be going to midnight Mass when we very young, and coming home at 1am and then eating traditional Sri Lankan cakes and breads early morning. We were never allowed to stay up this late usually so this was always a special treat!
  3. My parents have passed on the traditional Sri Lankan Cakes and breads recipes at this time of year. So we always have Fruit Christmas cake, Love Cake and Breudher (a Dutch influenced cake)
  4. My Christmas wishes are always good health for my family and I. That is most important!  🙂
  5. My mother in law is Sicilian and she undoubtedly makes the best lasagne in this world. So every Christmas day dinner when we spend it with her and my husband’s family we always have lasagne and that’s my favourite.
  6. I love my Christmas tree. It is 20 years old, but my favourite. Each year I like to buy a special decoration or bauble for it. The decorations are usually red and gold, and if we have travelled overseas, I like to buy an ornament when on holidays to add to my collection if I find any! 🙂
  7. My favourite song is “Last Christmas” by George Michael. Gets me every time, RIP George. ❤
  8. Always with family.
  9. The Christmas spirit is being with your loved ones and giving thanks for what we have here on Earth.
  10. Just my family and friends.

  2. Wish I had seen this tag before the holidays – it would have been such fun. Remind me next year, ‘kay?! Lasagne for Christmas dinner – how dreamy! Our tree is turning 12 this year and we too, like to decorate it with ornaments from our travels – such magical memories! Hope you had the happiest of holidays and that 2018 is your best year yet!

  3. Okay so I am here quite late but hey Christmas lives in the heart, right? Your post appealed to that spirit inside me. I missed decorating our tree this time and also the roasts and cakes that we make at home but I guess you have got to give some to get some. Your traditions sound lovely as does breudher, the 20-year-old Christmas tree and lasagne. Warm and fuzzy! xx

  4. Lovely post! I enjoyed reading your answers 🙂 My family and I have used the same fake tree my whole life, and although one can in some places see just how old it is, I love it all the same. Getting new ornaments every now and then to hang on it is so much fun.
