Hi and welcome to Steph’s World & the Christmas Blogger Q&A Series. There will be 21 Guest Bloggers taking part in this Q&A running up to Christmas day. To learn more about this Series, please see my blogpost called ‘Introduction to the Christmas Blogger Q&A‘. Today we welcome Charlene McElhinney…
My name is Charlene McElhinney and I blog at www.charlenemcelhinney.co.uk J I am a blogger and vlogger who covers just about everything! I began blogging, as an online journal, and because I wanted to open up about Mental Health and my life experiences. Blogging – and everything that comes with it – means everything to me.
Question 1 – What is your favourite Christmas memory?
My favourite Christmas memory will always be spending the day with my Gran McElhinney. I lost my Gran last year and my family and I are going to find this Christmas very difficult. I feel blessed to be part of such a wonderful community that will get me through this tough time!
Question 2 – Are there any traditions you have around Christmas time?
I guess waiting on my mum and dad to go down the stairs (even at 20 years old). Also, watching Coronation Street on Christmas Day! Haha!
Question 3 – What is on your Christmas wish list this year?
I don’t really want anything for Christmas this year. If I had to choose something it would be to receive lots and lots of Christmas cards! I just love cards at Christmas; really gets you in to the spirit!
Question 4 – Do you like to wear Christmas jumpers, if you do; what is your favourite Christmas jumper?
I have never worn a Christmas jumper before however if I see a nice one this year I may pick one up so I can wear it to college or work!
Question 5 – Do you like to give presents or receive presents?
I’m definitely a giver! I love seeing people’s faces when I give them their pressies and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside! It’s the same with Christmas Cards – I always give out way too many because I love the joy that it brings!
Question 6 – Do you like the Christmas goodies such as Mince Pies, Christmas Pudding or the limited edition drinks?
I was going to say no to this one there and I remembered how much I’m loving Costa’s festive drink menu at the moment…
Question 7 – What is your favourite part of Christmas dinner?
None of it. Yeah, I’m a strange one. I don’t like Christmas Dinner. It’s so awkward.
Question 8 – What is your favourite Christmas Song?
I don’t actually have a specific favourite Christmas Song. I don’t think… but I do love all the festive songs and getting them stuck in my head all day and going around singing them! Who knows, maybe I’ll cover one this year on my YouTube channel?
Question 9 – Are you taking part in Blogmas or Vlogmas this year?
I am not. However, I am going to do ‘Snapmas’ and I shall be snapchatting every day during December instead. If you want to add me on snapchat, my username is: TheMcElhiester.
Question 10 – Do you have anything exciting coming up on your blog next year?
I have lots and lots of ideas! I guess you guys will just need to wait and see and watch this space!
