10 Things I Love about Christmas

Sunday, 20 December 2015

Anyone who knows me, knows how excited I get about Christmas, I absolutely love it so I thought I'd share my top 10 reasons with you (though there's many more!)

1./The Christmas Spirit
Everyone seems to be so much happier around Christmas, everyone gets into the festive spirit and are up for having fun, people are cheery and a lot less grumpy!  

2./The Food
It's no surprise to people who know me that I have a sweet tooth and at Christmas, there's so much chocolate around and it's totally acceptable to eat as much as you like.

3./Christmas Jumpers 
The one time of year when it's okay for everyone to wear garish clothes and the more outrageous the better! They're so much fun and helps share the Christmas spirit.

4./Christmas Songs 
They're super cheesy and easy to sing along to, so what's not to love? As soon as December 1st comes, I start blaring out the Christmas tunes - they never get old! 

I don't think I'll have much time to bake this year, but I love baking around Christmas time, gingerbread men and mince pies are a favourite to bake (despite hating the taste of mince pies).

6./The smell of Christmas Tree 
 I know this is a bold statement, but I genuinely think the smell of Christmas tree is the best smell ever! Every year we get a real tree and it just smells incredible, nothing beats it!

7./The Lights
Everywhere looks so pretty at Christmas as it's all lit up, I used to love watching our local Christmas lights being switched on every year when I was younger.

8./Family time 
For me, Christmas is all about family. Every year, we spend it as a family, whether that be just the four of us or with extended family, but for me it's such a special time. It's more important to me now that my brother is at uni as its nice to have him home and be a united family again.

I LOVE Christmas parties. I had my first proper work one this year, which I absolutely loved. However, I've had many in the past with friends, uni societies and youth group etc. I love having an excuse to dress up and indulge myself with more food! 

10./The presents
Obvs! Who doesn't love presents? Of course I love receiving them, but I actually get a lot of enjoyment out of giving them. I love putting a lot of thought into thinking about what people would like, wrapping them all nice and then there's nothing better than seeing the persons face light up when they open a present you put a lot of thought and effort into (providing they like it!) 

Let me know in the comments what you love about Christmas, I'd love to know. I hope you all have a lovely Christmas!
