Lifestyle: Things I Like About Christmas

favourite things about Christmas
A few days ago I wrote a post outlining the things I didn't like about Christmas (here). I thought I'd cheer things up a bit by talking about what I do like about Christmas. 

I like following Google to track Santa with William, and how he tells me that Santa is almost here so he has to go to sleep. I like how excited William gets when he wakes up and sees that Santa has eaten the biscuits and drank the milk. I love how amazed he is when I explain how Santa came to visit. I like how Williams face lights up when he unwraps a present and finds out its just what he was after, and sometimes I like the face he pulls when the present is 'just clothes' but he puts a happy face on anyway. I like sitting in the car with William and recounting tales from when I was a child as we drive to my grandparents house, and how he retells those stories to my grandparents. 
I like cooking with my Granny and helping to make Christmas dinner. I like sitting around the table with all my aunts, uncles, cousins as we eat all the food and drink all the alcohol. 
I like talking about my Dad, even though he's no longer with us, I like hearing about his Christmas' when he was growing up and how not much has changed to the way we do Christmas today. 

Most of all I feel grateful that I get to spend Christmas with my family as so many people can't. And even though I stress and brake down in the lead up to Christmas, its all worth it to make William happy. 

What do you like about Christmas?



  1. I love spending time with close family and friends, baking and putting up all of the decorations x

  2. I love giving presents and not going to lie, receiving them. I like how watching vlogmas videos on youtube that make me really happy and merry! And of course, spending time at home with my family in a nice cosy house x

  3. Aw this is such a lovely post, It's always all the little things that happen that make the day more special! Presents are lovely but its those little moments like the traditions you have or just generally being with family, watching crappy tv, eating or drinking too much thats what christmas is all about. Personally my favourite thing about chrismtas is watching crap tv adn eating milk tray haha.
