Probably one of my favourite times of year, I am one of those people who loves the excitement in the air, how glittery things become and all of the food on the shelves in shops. I am of course talking about Christmas and all of the joyous festivities that come with it. There’s a lot to love at this time of year and here are some of my favourite things about the season!
Christmas Markets – Anywhere that makes it acceptable to drink warm red wine in the day time is a winner with me.
Mulled Wine – This is one of my favourite Christmas smells. A big glass of mulled wine, walking around a winter wonderland with the air crispy fresh and the jangle of Christmas music playing in the background. Mmmmm, Christmas time!
Christmas Music – It’s a little different when you’re trapped in an office that has been playing Last Christmas since October but luckily that is not me this year so I still feel merry when I hear Mariah in December or The Pogues.
Christmas trees and Christmas lights – I love them all over the place but they make London so sparkly and pretty, how can this not be a good thing?
Drinking champagne with breakfast on Christmas Day – I mean, this is the single greatest thing about December 25th is it not?
Turkey with stuffing and cranberry sauce – Turkey is pretty boring, I know that, but with the right stuffing and a scoop of cranberry sauce it can be magical – at least for a month. Plus if you smoosh this in a sandwich, then you have the perfect festive snack.
Cards – I really enjoy writing Christmas cards and picking them out in stores. I have a tiny Christmas card list so that probably helps on this one, plus my cards are the CUTEST!
