We have started the countdown! Do you have an advent calendar? I have a little chocolate one, this year it’s Galaxy! I remember I had a little beauty product calendar last year, but there were only twelve days so I couldn’t have one everyday. Not complaining, I have some lovely products from it that is still use now! This is gonna be a post about my Christmas countdown.
For my family, Christmas usually starts on the first of December. We are the family that blasts Christmas music from then on. If my mum and I could put up Christmas lights, then we would, but my dad always says no. I play games with my parents like counting how many Christmas lights we can see on each side of the road.
A couple weekends in, we get our tree from a little place about 1/2 an hour away. We get real ones each year and we think its a little more fun to have the whole room smelling beautiful and we love the feel of the pine needles. We decorate it with the same decorations every year. Some simple little baubles that are purple, silver, red and gold. Then there are some special ones from family and homemade. We always hang some little Cadbury chocolates on the tree for whenever some one needs a pick-me-up in the run up to Christmas.
We decorate the house with the same stuff every year. Some little bells on the stairs and little figures all around the house.
Here are some pictures from last year.
I start to plan my Christmas presents in November, but don’t usually buy them until the beginning of December. This year I want everything bought and wrapped by the Christmas holidays! I’ll keep you posted!
Hope you are inspired to start Christmas now! See you on Wednesday.
