My Favourite Things about Christmas:
My favourite things to smell at Christmas:
*Pine Needles … It’s such an amazing smell to come home to, it instantly reminds me of Christmas and I just think it’s such a gorgeous fragrance that I wish I could have all year around.
*Red Berry & Cedar Yankee Candle … We pack these candles away with all of the Christmas decorations so it’s a lovely surprise when I find them in December. I light one of the tealights every time it gets dark towards dinner time so that the house gets this wonderful warm and fruity scent through.
My favourite things to do at Christmas:
*Switch the fairylights on … We have quite a few lights decorating the house, including the tree, and one of my favourite things to do is to switch them all on when I come home. I love it when it gradually gets darker and the lights stand out even more.
*Eating … I also love eating throughout the Christmas period, and don’t worry at all about putting on any weight! Having a small bowl of chocolate on the table is amazing, and the actual Christmas dinner and homemade Christmas pudding is delicious.
My favourite things to look at during Christmas:
*Presents … I love the detail of the wrapping paper that I choose, and all of the colours. I really do enjoy making all of the presents look pretty, and seeing how they look underneath the Christmas tree.
* Snow … We had a brief bit of snow but I haven’t seen any since! I wouldn’t really like to have a white Christmas though because I have a bit of traveling to do around Christmas, and although pretty, it can be dangerous. But in the meantime I do think that there is something so elegantly beautiful about it.
