Hello Everyone! I hope you have all had a fantastic week!
I decided to start my weekend a little earlier this week since the boyfriend had a day off work today we decided to take a trip into Birmingham to look around the German Christmas market and do a bit of shopping too. The market was so festive and has got me more in the mood for Christmas. I can’t believe that there is only 9 days to go! Wohooooo!
Now because I’m in a “deck the halls with bells
and holly” kind of mood I thought that I would share some of my seasonal inspirations and what I love about Christmas.
For me the best thing about Christmas is spending time with my loved ones and enjoying everyone’s company. it is the only time of year that we really get together under one roof. It really is a special time and I always cherish every moment with them.
There is so much gorgeous and sumptuous food around at this time of year. I’m all about seasonal produce, roasted veggies, gingerbread, dark chocolate, mince pie filling oats and spiced hot chocolates at this time of year. In previous years I have felt guilty by indulging the more richer foods, but you know what this year I’m just going to go with it. I think this year more than most my attitude and relationship with food has come on tremendously. Christmas only comes round once every year- come January I know that I will back to my normal eating habits again.
This time of year is also great because I love buying presents for people and wrapping them up. It’s so nice to feel like I am giving something back to my family and loved ones for all of the support and love they show me. For sure I know that are many other acts that can show this, but in line with the current festivities I think giving back in gift form is harmless at Christmas.
All the effort that is put in to decorating the Christmas tree and town’s across the country is amazing. I remember that my mum would take us to go and see the Christmas lights being switched on when my brother and I was younger. It was always so nice to see the town illuminated in pretty bright lights.
And of course this time of year wouldn’t be the same without a load of Christmas movies to keep us all entertained. I think my personal favourites have to be Elf, Miracle on 34th Street and A Christmas Carol. What are your favourite Christmas movies?
What do you love most about Christmas?
Are you all prepared for the big day? We going to have a scout around the supermarkets this weekend to get some of our Christmas food in and I’m going to make plans for the main meal. I can’t wait! 😀
