Hey everyone! ♡
Happy Blogmas week day 3! Today’s post I am so so so SO excited about. It is my Christmas favourites, so basically we all know the monthly favourites that have been a blog and youtube tradition for years, I thought I’d do a Christmas version, with actual things and just general favourites about Christmas that you can’t touch. Really hope you all enjoy the post and make sure to leave a comment if you do, I reply to them all and it means so much.
My first favourite is a bit of a generic, boring one but Quality Street! You tell me what is more christmassy then getting all cosy with a Christmas film and your box of xmas treats. For us it’s Quality Street, but I do love them all. I just feel it wouldn’t be Christmas for me without them so I need them, the problem is I get a bit too over excited and eat too many before Christmas so we have to buy another one lol. What ones are your fave? I love the strawberry delights, the orange creme ones, the caramel swirl ones. They are the best! The only thing I feel like is disappointing i the fact they put less and less in every year, have you see the pics from when they first came out, they were massive!
The next thing is just the fact that all my family come together at Christmas and that doesn’t happen very often as they are all super busy so I just treasure this time more than anything else. It is so special to me, that is one of the best things about Christmas for me, my family mean so much and Christmas is the perfect time to celebrate that. Also to feel grateful for the fact I have a family and people who .love me because some people don’t. It is so good to spend quality time and the fact that everyone makes the effort to is fab!
The Christmas decorations everywhere, I love looking round the town, outside peoples houses and inside mine because they just make me so happy. It is truly Christmas when the trees, tinsel, lights etc come out because that just means everyone is getting happy and into the spirit. I love my tree because we just stuff everything on it and it is full of memories, we also have such a pretty wreath and put tinsel and lights everywhere. I know decorations don’t define Christmas but it is one of my favourite things about it. I also know so may disagree but I say decorations can go up from 1st November onwards because the longer they are up, the longer you can enjoy them and be happier and in the spirit for longer! It is the best!
The Christmas dinner, is this pretty obvious? I’d say yes aha. The roast just becomes a true 10/10 on Christmas day, I love a roast anyway everyday of the week but you can’t do better than Christmas dinner! I absolutely love it and I love the feeling of fullness and satisfaction afterwards. No sprouts for me though,what about you sprouts or not? It is all about the pigs in blankets and the roasties for me! I think that Christmas dinner kind of makes me feel comfortable you know, a bit of tradition and deliciousness that just brings a smile to my face.
The cosy nights, towards Christmas the heating ramps up, the fire goes on, fluffy pyjamas and warm blankets out and it is BLISS! A good Christmas film, Quality Streets and a hot chocolate. It is the best thing ever, nothing better than feeling cosy and it is just so great. Also maybe writing a Christmassy blog post as well, that would make it the best.
Talking of blog posts, the blog and Youtube game gets so amazing at this time of year. The content is so fun to watch and read and really helps me feel even ,more festive and it is lovely to see people putting lots of effort into their videos and posts. Also the fact that some people film and upload or write blog posts everyday is insane, I don’t think I could ever do that so I commend you, that’s so fab! Some faves are: Anastasia Kingsnorth, Jazzybum, Sophie Louise on Youtube and Grace does blogs gracedoesblog.wordpress.com, my internet bestie Ella Rose aspirnkleofellarose.wordpress.com and so many more!
Christmas music, omg I hate to say this and you might all hate me after but I am not the biggest fan of Christmas films,. I much prefer the music, there are so many that I absolutely love and that is the key to truly getting a smile on my face. Music just mean sos much to me anyway, Christmas music just makes it better. Let me know what your favourite festive songs are below. Here are a few of mine:
All I want for Christmas is you
Do they know it’s Christmas time?
Holly jolly Christmas
Baby it’s cold outside
Driving home for Christmas
Santa claus is coming to town
Jingle bell rock
Santa tell me
Wish it could be Christmas everyday
I just realised how long that list is, but Christmas music is the best so who can blame me right?!
The run up to Christmas, there is always a debate of is Christmas day better or is the run up to Christmas better? I don’t know because I love them equally but it is so exciting getting everything prepared at Christmas and everyone is happier and all the decorations you can see etc. Advent calendars, blogmas and vlogmas etc, love it all!
So that is it for today’s blog post, I really hope you have all enjoyed. It means so much that you are taking the time out of your day to read it.
Here are my other Blogmas posts from this week if you’ve missed them and fancy giving them a read:
Have a fab rest of your day,
