It's the most wonderful time of the year

Hey Lovelies,

How are we all?

If you follow me on twitter, you will know that I was debating whether to let my blog enjoy a Christmas break for this very festive week. However, here I am. I decided instead of doing beauty posts this week (as I shall probably be make up free for most of the week) I thought I'd do a couple of posts saying what I like and dislike about Christmas. 

Today's post is going to be about the things I like about Christmas and then on Wednesday (Boxing day) I shall be posting my dislikes (there will be a lot less of those. I am a true Christmas Fan I promise). Please note that these posts are scheduled, so if I don't reply straight away, its because I'm chilling with my family.

So what do I like about Christmas?

  1. The Family Traditions... Every Family has traditions some people wait until after lunch to open their presents, some wake up, run down stairs and open everything super quick. Well my family come under the second lot. We are a wake up around 8am and open presents together kind of family. I think its probably the only day of the year, which we all sit around in the living room in our PJs drinking tea and nattering whilst opening presents. Another tradition that we have is that if we get given any kind of clothing for Christmas it is a rule to wear them for the Christmas Lunch...cue me wearing a Wolves (football) shirt at the table a couple of years ago.
  2. Using the dining table for lunch.... In my house, most meals are eaten at the kitchen table. I love that on Christmas Day, we eat at the dining room table and that I get to decorate the table with crackers and Christmas craziness.
  3. Christmas music... I love Christmas Music!! From Classic Carols to Mariah Carey to Peter Kay as Geraldine.. I love them all. I get really excited when the radio stations start playing Christmas songs in December. 
  4. Christmas Films... Like the music, I love watching Christmas Films. I am a strange person in that I can't watch Christmas films, or films I relate to Christmas any other time of year. However, once it hits the 1st of December films like The Holiday and Love Actually that I own on DVD come out of hiding and into my DVD player (I am the same way with other films like I only watch the film Wimbledon, whilst Wimbledon is on.... does this make me strange?)
  5. Visiting family and friends.... For me this is one of the best things about Christmas. Seeing Family and Friends that you miss seeing all the time. I love going to my Best Friend's house at the best of times but I love popping over around Christmas time because their house is always so homely and warm and I would happily just stay there for days. I always feel a part of that family. Same with visiting family. On Boxing Day, I shall be making the trip to Wales to visit some of my mum's family. I love them all dearly and just hate that I don't get to see them as often as I'd like. Christmas just brings everyone together and I love that.
  6. Finally, what I like about Christmas is the presents. I don't think I could of made a list without putting presents on. You can't beat a little surprise thing to open on Christmas Day.
I could go on for days but I shall leave it there... What I want to know from you is what do you like about Christmas? Leave me a comment below.

My next post will be on Wednesday. Enjoy Christmas Day lovelies, Merry Christmas. Hope you all get what you want off Santa.

Till Next Time,
