    I adore the whole build-up to the big day, all the sparkle and excitement, the sense of exhilaration, and all the little rituals it involves. It all culminates for me on Christmas Eve evening, when we shut the door against the world outside, and focus on our loved ones, all the work behind us, and all the anticipation of the treats to come in the days ahead. There is something so peaceful and pure about those few hours that I usually cry when they are over and Christmas has truly arrived!

  19. November 16, 2017 / 2:45 pm

    November 21, 2017 / 2:28 pm

    I’m slightly ashamed to admit the thing I love most about Christmas is the food, mainly because I’m a greedy gannet but also because I love Christmas fare – pudding, cake, gammon (which we only seem to eat at Christmas) and festive fresh nuts which I take great delight in cracking whilst watching the tv and drinking lots of alcohol! 😉

  83. November 21, 2017 / 5:08 pm

    I love all the twinkliness of fairy lights in houses and strung in trees. Love nothing more than a crisp Christmassy walk taking in all the warmth from the houses we pass.

  84. November 21, 2017 / 5:10 pm
