The Most Wonderful Time Of the Year


"Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time" - Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Within this joyous month of December we get to enjoy the company of some of the most exciting and happy times of the whole year all wrapped up into one month. The build up to Christmas including houses filling with the sweet smell of Christmas treats cooking in the oven, getting in the spirit of Christmas through classic melodies (one of my favourites being 'I wish it could be Christmas every day' by Wizzard), gathering with family and friends, sharing memories of past christmases between young and old, and the tradition of putting up the Christmas tree and decorating the house, whether your a minimalist or go way over the top with tinsel and all things green and red like me. And once that's all over we get to look back and appreciate the year past and how we have changed, before celebrating new starts with the beginning of a new year.

December is definitely my favourite month of the year. I am so appreciative of how good my life is and how lucky I am to have so many lovely people around me. However, it also makes me think of all those people who aren't as fortunate as me, and keep them in mind throughout this festive time.

I'd love to know what your favourite part of December is and if you have any traditions so please comment them down below.

To all of you who are reading this, I wish you a merry Christmas, a happy new year, and all the joy in the world for this special time of year.
