Hello December!

(Source: http://weheartit.com/)
Wow how quickly has this year gone! It feels like the last time i looked at my calender it was May! It's amazing!
I absolutely love December. It's my favourite time of the year and i always seem to end up counting down the days until it begins again, the minuet it finishes! So i've made a list of some of my favourite things about December!

I know it's an obvious choice but it's the best part of the month. It's all my favourite things packed into one day - decorations, presents, roast dinners, family, friends and happiness.
2) Hot Drinks and Starbucks Red Cups

Winter is the best time of the year for hot drinks and Starbucks make it extra special with their cups! A hot drink and a cheeky cake when you're taking a break  from your christmas shopping on a cold day; what's better than that?
3) Christmas Music!

However cheesy and annoyingly catchy most of the songs are, you have to love christmas songs! They really get you into the festive spirit and make you want to join in and dance around!
4) The Holidays!

No work or school? Enough said.
5) Christmas Cards!

I love giving and recieving christmas cards! They're little bits of love in letter form! My house is always full of them, and i like to put up my ones in my bedroom, but they normally don't come down till easter because i enjoy looking at them so much! And what's better than a homemade christmas card?
6) Snow!

Even though we don't get much of it in the UK, the snow is one of the best parts of winter! I love waking up in the morning looking outside to see the world covered in a snowy white blanket - it's beautiful!
7) Shopping!

I love christmas shopping, picking out special gifts for those special people in your lives! And at christmas it's exta special because all the shops are decorated and have beautiful window displays! One thing i am rubbish at though is sticking to a budget! If i see something that 100% suits a person, i have to buy it (no matter how much it is). And one thing that is especially great is how you can buy yourself things whilst shopping but it's ok because it's an 'early christmas present'...
8) Christmas candles!

I'm not normally a candle person but brought one last week and i absolutely love it! It makes the room smell all lovely and christmasy (is that a word?)!

9) Lights!


One of my favourite memories of christmas when i was younger is when we used to visit my grandparents on christmas eve and drive back in the dark and sometimes the snow, and on the way we'd drive through lots of little pretty villages where all the houses were lit up and looked beautiful! So i guess that's something i'll always love about christmas!

So that's my list of some of my favourite things about christmas! What are yours? I'd love to hear some of them :)

Lots of Love
