So, Halloween is over along with Bonfire Night. We had a great time getting dressed up and playing games for our Halloween Party, and A will be taking O to see the fireworks at the local display on Saturday. And now, there’s not a lot to look forward to until Christmas! Apart from my God-daughters 1st birthday in December of course…
I absolutely, without a doubt, LOVE Christmas.
I love it so much, I feel the excitement bursting inside my body every time I think about it.
I spend the entirety of November and December preparing for, enjoying and longing for Christmas.
I love the atmosphere in the shops.
I love the effort people go to decorating their homes, gardens and work places.
I love the food you can buy at this time of year.
I love to make mulled wine in my slow cooker and wrap presents to send off to Santa.
I also love being just a little bit mean (but realistic) and striking people off our Christmas card list.
But on the up side, I love to add new friends in their place.
The only thing I dislike is crossing off absent friends and family, knowing there’ll never be another Christmas quite the same without them…
I love watching the Christmas adverts on television, each department store and supermarket trying to out-do each others efforts and win the hearts, and cash, of the nation.
I especially love the Coca-Cola advert… Holidays are coming! Holidays are coming!
I love adding to our Christmas decorations each year.
I love putting up them up on the 1st December.
I love to add treats to our Advent Calendar.
I love to make homemade mince pies.
I love to snuggle under a blanket on the sofa watching Christmas films on cold winter days.
I love the Christmas songs playing on the radio in the car and on the music channels on television.
So yeah, I pretty much love Christmas. But more specifically, the build up to Christmas.
I’d love to know what your favourite thing about Christmas is?
