“It’s beginning to look a look like Christmas,” I sing for the 5839th time already in the past few weeks.
But seriously, it’s officially the best time of year. Everyone’s eating, singing and avoiding work to their heart’s content because let’s face it – it’s Christmas!
Here are the best things about the festive season – in my opinion anyway…
Cracking open the first tub of Celebrations
There are few things I love more than opening a box of Celebrations and slowly making my way through them whilst I watch cheesy Christmas film after Christmas film. The only one you won’t catch me eating is Bounty. Ew.
Just all of it. Turkey. Cranberry sauce. Homemade mince pies. Celebrations. Yorkshire puddings. GRAVY. Crispy roast potatoes by the dozen. Mash. Sprouts. Pigs in Blankets. Figgy pudding. Selection boxes.
I’m sorry but why are Christmas pyjamas so much comfier than ordinary, run-of-the-mill, all-year-round pyjamas? Either it’s all one big Christmas illusion or the shops only bring out their finest fabrics for the festive season.
Without Christmas there wouldn’t be any January sales, amirite? I’m not one to wake up at the crack of dawn on Boxing Day to fight my way through the high street but I always have a look to see what I can find online. ‘Tis the season of discount codes, fa, la, la, la, laaa, la, la, la, la. (I know it’s not the same but I think you get the jist).
No number of hot chocolates is ever too many
You know that Christmas is just around the corner when all the coffee shops start bringing out their festive drinks menus. There’s nothing I love more than working my way through all the Christmas hot chocolates.
Is it just me or does nobody care about anything in December? There are few things in the world that can’t be justified by “Oh well, it’s Christmas” and for that, I am truly thankful. Want to lay on the sofa watching Elf on repeat for 4 days? You can! It’s Christmas. If you need me I’ll be hibernating in all of the “it’s Christmas” gloriousness.
As always, thank you for reading!
