Twinkly lights glowing against bright, shiny baubles, the glow of Christmas has already started here.
Mulled wine in front of the fire and piles of gifts ready for wrapping.
The excitement of a school performance at a stately home and practicing carols for Church Christmas services.
Time to consider what Christmas means to us, nice food and drink with close family, daytime naps and long winter walks after a big meal.
Crafty keepsakes and handmade cards, spending time cooking recipes old and new that we don't usually have the time for.
Appreciation of what we have and helping others less fortunate than ourselves.
Drinks with friends, a special tea with Santa and a yearly visit from a Buddy the Elf.
Reading the nativity story as a family and Christmas movie nights with treats.
Laying back, relaxing, switching off the alarm and avoiding looking at the clock!
All of our Christmas celebrations have one thing in common: FAMILY 💙💗💙
In the next 25 days I'll be taking you on our Christmas journey, showing you our festive makes, sharing our favourite Christmas traditions and telling you about our Yuletide activities.
Ooooh, I cannot wait! I hope you are looking forward to it too.
