This is my first Christmas as a blogger and Christmas is my favourite time of year so participating in Blogmas was a no brainer. I thought it made sense to kick off Blogmas with a post all about why I love Christmas so much!
Christmas has always held some very special memories for me. I am very fortunate to have the incredible family I do and Christmas is always that time of year that pulls us even closer together. I have such fond memories of being really little, surrounded by family on Christmas morning and everyone just being so happy being together. I still live with my parents but my grandparents, aunties and uncles etc have always lived a fair distance away but we’ve always made the effort to spend the festive period together.
I LOVE buying gifts for people. I definitely relate to that meme about your mum deserving an island but only being able to afford a candle. I swear I start thinking about Christmas gifts in Summer. You don’t have to wait until Christmas to show your appreciation for someone but absolutely nailing that Christmas gift for someone means so much to me.
Okay so, I have to apologise for sounding really cliché here but I think something that makes me love Christmas so much is just how magical it is. There is always so much happiness in the air. Good old Christmas spirit and cheer! Christmas lights are everywhere brightening up otherwise dull evenings; and can we talk about how positive Christmas films and songs are?
This post seems like a bit of a ramble purely because of how excited I get regarding the festivities. I guess if I could list my favourite things about Christmas, it would go like this: family; gifts; films; songs; FOOD; bright lights; drinks; decorations; cosy nights… I could go on but I think you all get the picture!
Let me know your favourite things about the festive period! Have I missed something that absolutely makes Christmas for you?
