The Little Things I Love About Christmas Time

Wednesday, December 07, 2016

It's not secret that I absolutely love Christmas, and everything that comes with it. I've shared our Christmas Bucket List which pretty much covers all of the big things I love about this time of year, so I thought that today I would share some of the little things that I adore about the festive season:

Hearing carols being sung as you walk past a church
Seeing people's Christmas trees through their windows
The smell as you open a tub of Quality Street
Finding that beautiful bauble that you had forgotten about
Perfectly sweet and juicy clementines
Sitting down to highlight everything you want to watch over Christmas in the Radio Times magazine
Eating all of the cheese
Finding the houses that have gone to town with the tacky Christmas lights
Wearing red lipstick all day every day
A glass or two of wine with lunch at the work Christmas meal
Seeing your child's face light up when they see Father Christmas
The feeling of magic that is in the air on Christmas Eve
Lighting the advent candle each day
Seeing wreaths on front doors
Getting a Christmas sandwich in your meal deal
Wearing a Christmas jumper to work
The smell of pine when you buy a Christmas tree or wreath
Burning all of the candles
The glow in the living room when you've got all the fairy lights on
Wearing Christmas socks rather than normal socks
The comfort of a warm cup of mulled wine
Curling ribbon when you wrap presents
When your shopping list entirely consists of Christmas food
Meeting up with friends and family who you haven't seen for ages, and it's like nothing has changed
The excitement when you remember you haven't opened your advent calendar yet
Finding yourself singing along to a Christmas song in the supermarket
Snuggling up with a big hot chocolate to watch a Christmas film
Finding yourself still buying presents on Christmas Eve
Putting fairy lights up in the office in a bid to make it more festive
Seeing all of the presents under the tree and wondering what could be inside
Having Christmas themed everything, including bleach and washing up liquid (just me?)

What are the little things you love about Christmas time?
