And so it begins! (Forgive me for singing “on the first day of BLOGMAS…” to myself whilst writing this).
L kicked Blogmas off yesterday with his favourite things about Christmas so now it’s my turn to share mine.
Christmas TV specials
One of my favourite things about actual Christmas day is all the Christmas specials that are on TV. Doctor Who and Call the Midwife are always favourites but apparently there is going to be a Christmas bake off this year?? Which sounds pretty awesome too (I love cake).
L would disagree with me here, but I really love mince pies and Christmas cake. In fact, I like decorating the Christmas cake too with marzipan and little plastic snowmen and reindeer (doesn’t look as tacky as it sounds…I hope). Also not really Christmassy but we always have tonnes of sausage rolls at Christmas and I love sausage rolls 😂😂. And trifle as well?? Trifle is great.
Not having to do anything
Christmas holidays are always taken up by revision as I’m sure many of you can relate to, so on Christmas day it’s nice to not have to do any work and just chill for the day. (She says…knowing full well she’s so behind on coursework she’ll almost certainly be studying on Christmas Day but OH WELL also why am I talking in Thurs person and now first I DON’T KNOW HELP).
Like, the proper traditional ones. My dad listens to classical radio so we usually end up listening to all the posh, operatic version of carols. But y’know it’s quite relaxing to listen to (until the songs get stuck in your head and you end up bursting out with “in the bleak midwinterrr” at random points throughout the year). I miss doing carol concerts in primary school too, they were fun!
Decorating the house
We usually don’t decorate until like a week or so before Christmas, but I still enjoy putting up our little 5ft artificial tree and placing various Christmas themed objects around the house!
Well, there are probably many other things I like about Christmas, but these are the ones that come to mind first!
Later on in the Christmas countdown, L and I will be doing a Christmas Q&A and we need you to ask us any Christmas-themed questions in the comments below or tweet us using the hashtag #LAndEmBlogmas. 🙂
Join me in two days to hear about my least favourite things about Christmas, and in the meantime, read L’s posts and enjoy the festive spirit!
