Advent Day 20 – Christmas This or That – Miss Many Pennies.

Each day of December we will have a new blogger telling us this or that. Check out Day 19 if you missed it. Today is day 20 and we have Hayley from Miss Many Pennies.

Hi, I’m Hayley, stay home mum to three little girls. I have a parent blog at My website is about frugal living, making money, family life and finances. I’m on Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook.

Real or fake tree?

I do LOVE a real tree, but with small children it can be a bit impractical and I’m a bit of a needle in the eye worrier, so it might have to be a fake! We do have a real tree that we replant in the garden each year though, so we’ll decorate that too.

Christmas pudding or chocolate log?

Christmas pudding all the way. With double cream.

 Sprouts or no sprouts?

No sprouts. Does anyone seriously like sprouts or do they just feel they HAVE to eat them cos it’s Christmas?

Presents in morning or afternoon?

In the morning!

Santa or Father Christmas?


Ginger bread or sugar cookies?

Ginger bread. We love decorating it.

Coloured lights or white lights?

Coloured lights! Coloured everything, no theme, just full on tackiness or it’s not Christmas.

Angel or star on top of tree?

Star, although it might turn into whatever the kids have made at school.

Hot chocolate or mulled wine?

Mulled wine. Or can I go off script and say Winter Pimms? Heat it up with orange segments and cinnamon sticks, it’s amazing.

How will you be celebrating Christmas? 

We’ll be visiting family, presents in the morning, then traditional Christmas dinner with more family, maybe some games in the afternoon.


Come back tomorrow for DAY 21 and see who our next blogger is!
