It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

With over a week of non Christmas related posts (I know, unheard of) , I can't express how much I've been itching to sit down and write something festive.

Even better that I am well and truly in the Christmas spirit, it started to snow in England earlier this week. Yes, you did hear correctly. S-N-O-W. Although that doesn't sound like too much of a miraculous event, when it hasn't snowed properly (and settled) in a good few years, it does in fact feel like a miracle.
Also, just out of curiosity, do you guys like the snow? I feel like it highly resembles marmite, you either hate it or love it.

I think it's safe to say that I am loving the build up to Christmas this month which is why I am clinging onto each day that goes past and dreading the return of boring every day life.

Some of the reasons I love it so much are as follows;

 Food. Just straight up food. The time of year where any healthy, nutritional eating plans get thrown out the window as you find yourself tucking into a box of Quality Street. A season full of mince pies and all things nice *unintentional rhyming*

Family Time. It doesn't get much better than cosying up by the fire, sweeping the dust off the old family board games and getting the family quizzes out of hibernation. After 11 months in waiting let the annual traditions commence!

The Christmas Spirit. I'm not sure what it is but there's something about passing all the newly transformed festive homes that instantly enlightens my mood and gives me such Christmassy vibes.

That is just a brief snippet of some of my favourite things about the lead up to Christmas. Not long to go!
