What Christmas Means to me

This is it! Last Minute running around, gathering things we have forgotten. Wrapping gifts, while watching films and drinking warm cosey drinks. Baking and or cooking food in preparation for tomorrow. Most of us have finished EVERYTHING! and are just enjoying ourselves, or are at work and will be for the next two days or rest of the holidays. I wanted to do a light and easy to read post for the last day of blogmas. 

Christmas has so many different meanings for so many different people and I just wanted to share with you all what Christmas means to me...

For along time since I could remember, christmas holds a special place in my heart. I love the feeling of feeling christmassy. I love the lead up to it in December, the films, going shopping and having a look at all the different houses decorated and lit up in multi-coloured lights and animated signs, santa and or reindeer. I love it!!!

To me, Christmas doesn't mean presents, I don't get excited for them. Sure, I used to as a little girl. But growing up, it has taken a whole new meaning. I love spending time with my family, whether thats watching a film, playing a board game (yes that's what we do), or filling our faces with food. Recieving presents is just an added bonus. 
Since leaving home eight years ago, I carried on the tradition. I'm not a very materialistic kind of gal. Sure I have my wish lists and items i'm desperate for, but I want to buy those for myself or if I do end up recieving an item for that list, then it's a kind gesture, and very sneaky of the person for looking at my list (I know you're reading this dear husband).  I don't expect for anyone to go out and buy me something I've longed for. To me that's not what Christmas is all about.

I feel kind of cheesy saying this but Christmas is family time. I get super excited at the amount of food i'm about to demolish and I don't care if I feel sick afterwards. I love monging out in front of the tv and watching the Christmas Tv listings while eating more food and drinking hot chocolate or Baileys. I enjoy playing games, usually Manopoly (I am very competative). 

This is what Christmas means to me. So as the big days, edges closer, I want to say have a fun-filled and joyus day. 

Happy Holidays To All My Followers and Readers
