When December 1st rolls around, it’s almost like my own little world inside my head goes a little bit coo-coo and into a hazy cloud of glitter, fairy lights, and all things festive. My personal favourite time of year, I even enjoy it more than my birthday, has many perks to it and I couldn’t not jump at the chance to begin celebrating even earlier this year- cracked out the Bublé in October shh! So here below is a list of my favourite things about Christmas and the holiday season…
The festive spirit
Smiles on faces when opening presents
Christmas spices and scents
The beautiful decorations hung in the city
Twinkly fairy lights
Baking festive themed treats
More sunshine in the evenings
Dressing in red, white and green
Wearing bright red lipstick
Getting dolled up for Christmas events
Cherries… with everything!
Christmas light home displays
Constructing the gingerbread house
Ham and cheese croissants on Christmas morning
But most of all… the best presents our family will receive for Christmas are our two new kittens – Leo and Ace! Although we won’t be able to pick them up until the 1st of January, we can’t wait to shower them with lots of love and cuddles.
