…to be jolly! I think it’s the snow that’s done it. I love this time of year anyway but the snow has just pushed me over the edge of giddiness. I just cannot wait to get all the decorations down from the loft and put them up, then to me the festive season will have arrived.
I remember once as a kid convincing myself that I had seen santa flying across the sky out of my bedroom window. I now know I didn’t (still a tiny bit of me wants to believe it) and was probably so delirious with excitement that I was hallucinating! But oh christmas is just so wonderful, all bright and sparkly and full of promise. There are so many things to love about christmas, here is my little list:
seeing my son’s face on christmas morning
being with family
being with friends
all the wonderful smells
food, lots of food
wine, yes can’t forget that
feeling warm and sleepy after lots of food and wine
films I have seen a million times but watching them anyway
thinking about our sponsored child in africa and hoping he is having a good time
making christmas crafts
I realise how lucky I am looking at this list and would like to spare a thought for people less fortunate. My wish this christmas would be that everyone in the world could feel safe, warm, loved and happy. If only I could make that come true.
I know I am not alone in my giddiness and I would love to know what your favourite things are about the festive season?
