Well guys, Christmas is fast approaching and I don't know about you but I CAN'T WAIT. SERIOUSLY CANNOT WAIT. It couldn't come fast enough to be honest! I broke out the Christmas songs a few days ago and that was probably a bad idea because then it's still about a month to go and I already feel so Christmassy.
This Christmas is going to be an extra special one this year. And H has an epic Christmas party every year and because we weren't at that friend stage last year I didn't go, so this year I'm not only going but am also JOINT HOST. This idea makes me so stoked and obviously I can't wait for our party and I've planned what I'm going to wear already and it's all just so EXCITING (I made a few purchases the other day and then decided that they were perfectly smart/casual/festive enough for this party).
As well as the party, I've got some other pretty cool things planned: day trips out, New Year's celebrations, ice skating that are all going to make this year especially fantastic.
So it's Thanksgiving in America on the 28th which definitely means that Christmas is nearly here. I heard the other day that they prefer Thanksgiving more than actual Christmas and consider it to be more of a family get together, which I didn't know. But they basically get two Christmas' though which is so unfair. I wonder if they get two lots of presents? Hhmm I don't know. I know that they get two Christmas dinners which is pretty awesome. I can't wait to eat my own body weight in food.
One of the things that I love about this time of year are the lights in the streets and shop windows and wrapping up warm to go outside and the Christmas songs playing in shops and the general (ironically) warmness that Christmas has.
So if you weren't feeling festive before, I hope that just thinking about it makes you want to celebrate it. Stick on the Christmas songs, put up a tree soon, string tinsel and lights from every possible place, buy every single mince pie, walk the streets at night when the lights are on, have a cheeky kiss under the mistletoe but most of all don't forget to celebrate and appreciate everybody that is around you. After all, Christmas is the time to be thankful and loving so even if you don't do it at any other time, make sure that people know how you much you appreciate them this festive season.
Meet me under the mistletoe.
