Everyone has their own idea of a “perfect Christmas”. For some, it is the dream of snow falling outside and a fire crackling in the hearth. For others, it is the promise of a delicious turkey roast dinner shared with the whole family. But to me it is something else. I am going to share with you a list of the most important things for me at Christmas.
- The Advent Calendar
I’m not really sure quite what it is about the calendar that means so much. It’s not like I am the hugest chocolate fan in the world, and as I am constantly on a diet, the fact that I am stuffing my face with chocolate every day actually makes me quite sad when I think about it. But maybe it has something to do with tradition. I have always had an advent calendar, so without it, something would just be missing.
- Cold Weather
It would not be Christmas without a little bit of frost or even (fingers crossed) some snow sprinkled onto the ground. I know it’s each to their own – if you want to go to Australia for a beach christmas then fine – but I just couldn’t do it myself. Christmas is a time for snow and wrapping up warm.
- Christmas Coffee
So I’ve written coffee, when really I mean mocha. I’ve never been a coffee fan and I don’t plan on becoming one any time soon. But a mocha – in-between with a bit of coffee and chocolate – is a different thing all together. And when they add exciting things to it like amaretto, hazelnut and toffee nut, it just gets me extremely excited!
That’s a pretty self-explanatory one, but I thought I would share this crime with you all; the other day I spoke to someone who HATES CHRISTMAS TREES. I know! And you know what, I could think of no reply to them so I just kind of nodded and walked away.
There’s plenty of other things but I’m struggling to think of them. I love Christmas, and that is the message of this post. The end.
