If you’ve been keeping up with my Blogmas series so far then you probably could have guessed that I absolutely LOVE Christmas. Today I wanted to share with you my favourite things about the holiday season. I found it so hard to whittle it down to just 5 things, but for me, these are the most important ones.
I’m such a foodie, especially when is comes to sweet treats and meat, and there’s plenty of that over Christmas! There’s nothing better than enjoying a Christmas dinner with the family and then having a little nap on the sofa while watching some Christmas tv, I can’t wait! Does anyone else only ever have Terry’s Chocolate Orange at Christmas too?
I have quite a small family but it’s always so nice when we’re all in the same place. A few members of the family live quite a way away from where I live, so Christmas is the perfect excuse to get everyone together.
Is it really Christmas without a few silly games? I’m sure there’s always one in every family that would rather not partake in ridiculous Christmas games, (there is in mine!) but for me that’s all part of Christmas. One of my personal favourites is Rapidough, if you’re not familiar then I’ll give a little explanation, you’re split into two teams and one person from each team has to model something out of play dough while the other members of the team has to guess what they’re making, the first team to guess correctly wins. This can go on for quite a while and is great fun for all ages! What’s your favourite game to play at Christmas?
I know a lot of people worry about money around this time of year as it can get so expensive, but you don’t have to spend a lot. I really enjoy shopping for other people, but I think my favourite part is wrapping the gifts and making them look pretty – I know, how lame! If you are worried about how to budget your Christmas shopping then take a look at my post on homemade gifts for as little as £10.
I’d be lying if I didn’t say I don’t look forward to receiving presents on Christmas morning, everyone does! I’m such a big kid when it comes to this time of year, I literally can’t ever sleep on Christmas Eve because I’m so excited for the next day! It’s not the price of the gift that’s important – it’s, of course, the thought – but anything makeup related will go down well with me!
This wraps up my 5 favourite things about Christmas, I think I’ve covered all the topics that most people look forward to over Christmas, but if there’s anything I haven’t mentioned that you think I should have then let me know below!
