Advent Day 17 – Christmas This or That – Daddilife.

Each day of December we will have a new blogger telling us this or that. Check out Day 16 if you missed it. Today is day 17 and we have Daddilife.

I run DaddiLife – a website for dads, focusing on modern fatherhood, things to do and health/wellbeing.






Real or fake tree?


We’ve gone fake for the last 3 years, but I think I’m ready to go REAL again this year.


Christmas pudding or chocolate log?


This one is easy. I do not like Christmas Pudding in any way, shape or form. So the log it is!


Sprouts or no sprouts?


100% sprouts. They’re pride of place on the dinner table, and make for a brilliant bubble and squeak the next day.


Presents in morning or afternoon?


I don’t have the patience to wait until the afternoon 😉


Santa or Father Christmas? 


SANTA. He’s real right?


Ginger bread or sugar cookies?


Ginger Bread Everytime. To be honest, I quite like these beyond just Christmas!


Coloured lights or white lights?




Angel or star on top of tree?




Hot chocolate or mulled wine?


Ooo that’s tricky. Could it be both? Hot chocolate for a day treat, and the Mulled for the evening?


How will you be celebrating Christmas? 


We’ve spent the last couple away from ours so I actually can’t wait to do it at ours this year. As well as immediate family we’ve also got a couple of sets of friends coming over which is going to be great fun, and feels even more in the spirit of Christmas!

As a little tradition we always go out post meal for a little walk in the local park ( I think it’s just an excuse to walk off the full bellies before dessert!), and with the youngest in the family having hinted strongly at his ride on car present this year, I think the park walk is going to get a little creative with the little automobiles driving around too this year.



Come back tomorrow for DAY 18 and see who our next blogger is!
