Getting into the Christmas Spirit

As a beautiful song goes “it’s the most wonderful time of the year” (every time I read that I sing it).

Everything about December just makes me happy. There is so much to love during this time of year. Also, December for me is all about relaxing, reflecting and just enjoying myself. I know that can be quite hard with all the added pressures at work, bills and buying presents but I try to enjoy it as much as I can. Never let anything negative take over your life.

When it comes to Christmas I say go all out. For me seeing decorations, lights or Christmas trees just makes me smile. I feel happy and in the Christmas spirit. You can look around and just really appreciate how lovely your environment is.

This year for some reason I have really struggled with buying presents (anyone feel the same?). I just put so much pressure on myself to buy presents that are “amazing” I forget that its “the thought that counts”. However, I will say there have been some great Christmas gift ideas around this year and I have bought funny stocking fillers for family and friends and partner.

Hot drinks/Cafe dates

Something else I love about the colder months is that I can wrap up in a coat and scarf and just pop into a café and sit with a hot chocolate (and yes I get all the “naughty bits”). There is just something so cosy about doing this and I just love it. Nothing can get better than this.

I do love taking photo’s in the Autumn/Winter months because you get some beautiful shots.

Christmas jumpers

Lastly it wouldn’t be a Christmas blog without mentioning the Christmas jumpers… honestly, I love Christmas jumpers. Seeing everyone in them and just having a laugh just makes me feel so happy and I feel so much better wearing a Christmas jumper (I am just obsessed with going all out for Christmas if you didn’t guess).

This year and December especially has gone extremely quick, which is sad. But I hope everyone has an amazing Christmas and enjoy all the traditions whatever they may be. And I hope everyone reflects and goes straight into the new year in positive spirits.

Merry Christmas Eve,
