December is finally here and the countdown to Christmas has officially begun! I was so excited that I had the tree up and done on the 1st and you know what I don’t regret a thing! I’ve always had a sense of excitement over Christmas. Even now as a so called ‘adult’ I still fill with joy and wonder when this time of year comes around.
But Abby Christmas is so stressful. Well yes I mean there’s the pressure of buying gifts and braving the jam packed malls and that’s without mentioning the traumatic experience that is cooking Christmas dinner (🙄🙄) So why do I love Christmas?
Is Christmas even Christmas if you don’t cover your house in a crap tonne of crazy decorations? Personally this is one of my favourite things about Christmas. I love putting up the tree and filling my house with dozens of decorations as it makes it feel much more homely and cosy. I also love going to look at other peoples decorations. You know the ones with who have a million and one neon santas lit up like Blackpool Illuminations? Yeah those are the best to look at on a chilly night!
Christmas songs 🎶
Because who doesn’t right? I love listening to an good old Christmas classic, especially when I’m doing something festive like wrapping gifts or putting up the tree. It gets me right in the Christmas spirit!
Although stressful at times, Christmas shopping is one of my favourite things to do. I love looking for gifts for my family and picking out colourful paper to wrap them in. I love stopping for a festive drink and watching the hustle and bustle of the streets.
Christmas movies 🎥
Is there anything better than settling down with a blanket and a hot chocolate and watching a good old Christmas film? I plan to watch as many as I can before Christmas eve but The Grinch and The Santa Claus are a must every year!
Christmas Dinner 🍽️
Can I really talk about Christmas and not mention Christmas dinner? I think this is probably most people’s favourite part of Christmas and it’s easy to understand why ( as long as you’re not the one cooking it all!🙄) Christmas dinner is the best. I mean normal dinners are nice but at Christmas all the festive ranges come out which means stuffing, cranberry sauce, pigs in blankets and that’s not even mentioning dessert!
As much as I love food what I truly love about Christmas is the way it brings us all together. It’s the one time of year that everyone travels home to spend time with one and other and create memories. Christmas a time to reunite and to forgive and forget. It’s about being with each other. It’s about caring. It’s about togetherness and most of all it’s about love and that is why I love Christmas.
Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time,
