Getting In The Christmas Spirit

Putting up the Christmas decorations is probably my favourite Christmas activity, other than eating the turkey roast, of course! There is something just so lovely about completely transforming the house into this warm, cosy, softly-lit place that just oozes comfort. For me, our house never looks better than when it does at Christmas. The tree twinkling with it’s white and gold decorations, with fairy lights sparkling all around our living room. The fireplace always looks so much better with the stockings above it, just waiting patiently to be filled on Christmas Eve. Winter themed tealights flickering away as the fire roars, filling the room with much-needed warmth for when we gather to watch A Christmas Carol.

The Christmas Tag 2017

For today’s Blogmas post, I wanted to, of course, keep it Christmassy but also fun! A while back I was going through our huge box of childhood photo’s and found some old Christmas ones from when I was a little girl. I couldn’t resist scanning them in and adding them to this post to make it extra Christmassy and nostalgic!

How To Stay Productive This Winter

Even though we are currently going through all the excitement of Christmas and everything that brings, Winter can be a specially hard season. It is cold. It is dark. The days feel incredibly short with the nights dragging and feeling as if they last forever. I know that I personally always struggle with this time of year, once Christmas has been and gone and there isn’t the excitement of the festivities, everything just goes by a little slower and there can almost seem to feel as if there is this bleak outlook on life.

Feeling Festive at Winter Wonderland

As promised in my December Goals post, I really wanted to go above and beyond with the Christmas Spirit this year and, if I do say so myself, I am doing pretty alright at that! I have already visited my local German market, been to my local towns Christmas Lights switch on but there was something in particular that has been sitting on my Christmas to-do list for a little while now. Winter Wonderland. Yep, the huge borderline tacky but wonderful Christmas Wonderland slap bang in the middle of Hyde Park featuring a funfair, German markets, an ice-rink, shows and of course, a Bavarian Village.

Little Ways To Cheer Yourself Up This December

There is no denying that December is the most magical month there is. The Christmas festivities are all around, twinkling lights in every window, smiles on everyone’s faces, it’s the season of goodwill and making incredible memories you’ll want to remember for years to come. But, even with the touch of magic in the air, it is also an overwhelming month. The pressure for the perfect Christmas, the pressure to perhaps see family you would not typically see for your own reasons, the pressure to make sure everyone has the perfect gifts, the pressure to make sure this year day is as good as the last. The financial pressure can be pretty tough too, it’s an incredibly expensive time of year and the costs associated with Christmas can leave you overwhelmed and anxious.

What I love about Christmas

Now, don’t get me wrong… I love everything about Christmas. Everything. If it is Christmassy, I probably have a lot of love for it. It is just simply the best time of the year. It’s just so magical and wonderful and honestly, I have never truly grown out of the Christmas Magic you felt as a child. Which, by the way, is definitely a good thing!
