Why I Love Christmas

 I am so busy, mainly with the children and their very active social lives, that I hardly have time to breathe, let alone blog!  This is definitely my absolute best time of year, because of:

  • Making the Christmas cake in October and starting to get excited...
  • The Christmas Story
  • My Christmas hat 
  • The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols from King’s College, Cambridge 
  • Making Paper-Chains
  • Wrapping presents 
  • Getting the decorations out and adding the new ones to the pile
  • Tins of Quality Street  
  • It’s A Wonderful Life
  • Wishing really hard for snow 
  • Collecting holly, ivy, pine-cones and herbs to decorate the house
  • Satsumas and Chocolate Coins 
  • Reading magazines and making lists, fantasy and reality
  • Cuddles in front of a roaring, crackling log fire
  • Singing Christmas songs, like, all the time
  • Groaning at cracker jokes
  • The smell of giblet stock on Christmas Eve
  • My children being so excited that they don’t know what to do with themselves
  • Drinking to absent friends
  • Leaving sherry and a mince pie for Father Christmas.  Don’t forget a carrot for Rudolph!
  • That very first bite of Christmas lunch
  • The Doctor Who Christmas Special
  • My ‘Ultimate’ Turkey Sandwiches and a bowl of Christmas Soup

And that's just for starters!  Hope the season is going well for you, too.
