What I Love About Christmas

What I Love About Christmas
Apart from the expensive, mad-rush in town and the one Brussels sprout I dedicate myself to eat on my Christmas dinner, there is very few things I dislike about Christmas. This means there's a significant amount of things I do love about it but, I have managed to narrow it down to the biggest reasons why.

If you're not feeling festive yet then hopefully this will help!

1. The Atmosphere - I love the atmosphere both in my house and outside of it too. Whenever I am in town all the Christmas lights are lit, music's playing and everyone is in a merry mood to buy their gifts. Which just makes you feel excited about buying other people's presents! I also love the feel of Christmas in my house - lots of twinkling lights, Christmassy films, hot chocolates in Santa mugs and let's not forget delicious tins of chocolate. Preferably Quality Streets!

2. The Weather - I hesitated to put this one in but, since we had a glimmer of some lovely snow over the weekend there is still hope for a white Christmas. I love the weather leading up to and after Christmas, being able to snuggle in thick coats, socks, scarves etc is such a warm, comforting feel! Plus we have more excuse to have a nice, long hot bath.

3. The No-Guilt - Being able to eat and drink as much as you want without feeling guilty because most people are doing it too. I love the excuse of being able to have a piece of chocolate everyday from my advent calendar, being able to have so much food stuffed on my Christmas dinner and bake sweet mince pies or Christmas cookies!

4. The Music/Films - I started creating my Christmas playlist in November I was that keen to listen to them. I love being able to listen to some classic Christmas songs and films in the comfort of my own home. Personal favourites of mine are Greg Lake, Wham and Shakin Stephens for music and Disney's Christmas Carol, The Polar Express and Edwards Scissorhands for films. What are yours?

5. Presents - Everyone loves giving and receiving presents on Christmas don't they? It's a lovely feeling knowing the people you buy for love the gifts and vice versa. I also love being able to write lists on what to buy people for Christmas and lets not forget about wrapping them too! I always dedicate a day to wrapping presents whilst watching Christmas films.

6. The Dinner - I could not leave this and not mention the Christmas dinner, I mean this just needs a blog post for itself. I always love the smell of my house on Christmas Day, the smell of the turkey roasting, vegetables brewing and bacon off the pigs in blanket. I always make sure I eat one Brussels sprout on Christmas and lots of stuffing. My favourite is definitely the pigs in blankets or homemade Yorkshire puddings! What is your favourite part of the dinner?

My apologies if any of you are left feeling hungry, it made me hungry just by typing.

What do you love most about Christmas??

  6. Christmas dinner is definitely one of my favourite things. My dad takes SO MUCH time with it, it's a feat in itself that we actually manage to eat... Getting presents *just right* is also another fave of mine~ :3
