It’s just 4 days until Christmas, can you believe December is going so quick? I feel like if I blink, we’re going to be in January already. I’d like to say I’m a self-confessed Christmas-holic, but I don’t think it’s just Christmas I love. It’s the lead up to it, the I love the festive period. From the end of October, I tend to be in my element. It’s my favourite time of year. From Halloween, we gave Bonfire night, and then on to Christmas planning. Whether that be budgeting for Christmas spends, or arranging gatherings and catch-ups between friends, family and work colleagues, I just love it.
The first of December peaks for me, it’s time to open your advent calendars and I have to put the decorations up. It’s a must. I just love the fairy lights and the festive colours so much! This year we were super lucky with it being a weekend, I had all the time in the world to decorate. The Christmas songs come out and life is the best. Although, next year I’m hopefully going to persuade Nathan into letting me get a real tree instead of a fake one!
This year, I think I’ve definitely topped my Christmas film watch list too. I have watched SO many festive films in my PJ’s with a hot chocolate and blanket. Whether that be the Netflix originals or an old Christmas classic film, I just adore them. Also, I’m one of the very few who loves the dark evenings because I just love to scurry home from work, get my jobs done and cuddle up on the sofa!
Now I’m a true believer, in the way that Christmas brings out the best in people. Around this time of year, people always try a little harder to help, even if it’s the smallest of gestures. In work we do a ‘Gift a Gift’ day. This is where we pick a name out of a hat for a less fortunate child, which will also include what their hobbies are and what they like, so that we can get them a gift for Christmas. This year on the 14th December our Atrium was filled with presents for the less fortunate and I absolutely love seeing all the gifts gathered.
What do you love about Christmas, is there something I’ve not mentioned here? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to hear!
