It’s nearly the weekend – YAAY!!
I absolutely LOVE Christmas and I thought I would share with you all my reasons why I love it as much as I do!
Everyone is so jolly, so happy, so festive that for some reason it creates a superb atmosphere. No matter where you go, whether you’re in the supermarket, at work, Christmas shopping, whatever it is you’re doing, the Christmas spirit is always there with you!
Everything is so colourful and jolly. All the shops have bright lights and sparkly decorations for sale. Driving past houses on my way home from work and seeing everyone’s trees and decorations lit up, glistening through their windows. I spend so much money on Christmas decs, I like to get a few new ones every year, not necessarily expensive ones either. I get super excited when it’s time for us to decorate the Christmas Tree and the house, getting the music on full blast, singing away, putting up the decs and making it look so pretty!
There is something special about putting together a gift. Wrapping it up and putting a pretty bow on top is so pleasing. Having a theme for my wrap is so important – this year I’ve chosen navy and copper. Then to make it even better – putting it under the tree makes it even more beautiful.
Spending time with my family & friends
I honestly can’t think of anything that beats spending quality time with your family and friends. The conversations are always funny and entertaining. Playing games, giving out your presents,unwrapping presents together, catching up and just having a real good laugh, feeling Christmassy and festive. You create more memories as you reminisce on the old ones.
Wow Wow Wow, the food at Christmas is insane. You get to have a wonderful home-cooked meal and gather around the table with friends and family. My Mum makes the best Christmas Dinner!! The buffet food you have on Christmas Day night & Boxing Day, the chocolates, the wine, the cocktails, all of it is truly scrumptious!! Christmas is a great excuse to eat lots, more than you normally would. Also, I love baking at this time of year, mince pies, cookies and biscuits!
Okay,so I am a little obsessed with shopping this time of year. I have bought WAAAY too much and I even have a bag of extra presents because I have bought too many! I love walking through the city with a puffer coat on feeling cosy and wrapped up warm whilst looking for presents and looking at all the Christmas gifts. I get so giddy and excited when I buy a gift for a loved one. I imagine their reaction and what they’re going to feel inside when they unwrap their gift. Also, Christmas markets are awesome, just from attending one, you come away feeling 10 times more festive than before you went.
So, this is kind of a big one for me as I absolutely live for Christmas films. I know the words to all of the Home Alone Films, The Santa Clause Movies and of course Elf. I always watch the same Christmas films each year, I just get the same ones out and I just sit and watch them so many times, I don’t care! I love them! These films literally make Christmas for me. I love snuggling in a warm blanket with a hot chocolate whist watching some of my favourite Christmas films – now that is special to me.
Now this is something I will never ever leave behind whilst I’m growing up. For me Christmas is ALL about the magic. It’s amazing how special and magical it is even though I don’t have children. I speak to so many people who aren’t bothered about Christmas and they’re not interested in it – obviously, this is their own opinion, I respect that. HOWEVER, I’m not a mad Christmas girl in regards to decorating or whatever, BUT I do love to celebrate and get that Christmas fever going!
I bloody love Christmas music, I don’t know how but as soon as I hear a Christmas song I just automatically get giddy and jig about like a little girl. I go to Christingle, so for me Carols also play a huge part in feeling the Christmassy vibe. I sing at the top of my voice and I feel great when doing so.
Lastly, I love the Christmas clothing. The sequins, the sparkles, the jumpers, just all of it. It’s incredible. I’ve purchased some Christmas pyjamas, I have Christmas knickers, I also have some Christmas socks, I mean…. I am ready for this!!!! My work Christmas party is next Saturday night and I will be sure to show you all my outfit. It’s an ombre sequin dress – I’m not going to say anymore about it so that it is a surprise for you all!!
So guys, these are the main reasons why I love Christmas, I do have a lot of reasons but for me, these 10 points sum it up well. I am considering doing another blog based on point 8, as I have a lot to say about my experience with the magic of Christmas.
Let me know what you’re favourite things are about Christmas, I would love to know!!
