Anyone who knows me, even just a little bit, is probably well aware of the answer to this.
I love it! I love the build up, the planning, the decorating, the evenings out to see the lights.
It’s so much more than just the presents and the day.
It’s making time to spend with your family, especially the extra effort to see the family you don’t get to see as often. Special trips in the run up to Christmas, to switchons, carol services, pantomimes, bake sales.
And if trips out are too much, there’s snuggly afternoons curled up on the sofa watching too many Christmas films with special hot chocolate and gingerbread biscuits.
Do you get the idea? I just love Christmas!
There’s no need to go overboard on presents. When you think back to Christmases past you almost never remember the presents you got, but the times spent together, food eaten and things made. Though the food but might just be the greedy one in me ;)
