As we all know, Christmas is such a magical time, something that never ceases to be without surprises and which brings so much happiness to many, both children and adults alike.
For some reason, at the very mention of the Season, it can cause our excitement to grow just like that, but what exactly is it about this Season that makes us love it so much?
For me it is:
I mentioned this in my last post, but I really do love wrapping. So many people I know will complain about it, and see it as more of a chore than the fun and relaxing activity that I see it to be.
I wrap everyone’s presents in my house, apart from my own of course, although if it wasn’t for the fact that I love being surprised, I probably would.
More of a Family Feel
I would have to say, without a doubt, one of my favourite parts of the Christmas Period, is getting to spend time as a family, without people moaning or staying upstairs. Let’s face it, Christmas and Family time kind of comes as a package deal.
They have absolutely no choice about it either! We are going to hang out and pretend to enjoy it whether they like it or not!
When Movies24 Turns To Christmas24
If you don’t know about this, you are 100% missing out and that isn’t even an exaggeration.
Every November, the Channel known as Movies24 turns into Christmas24, and plays Festive movies every hour of every day. It is practically the greatest gift every Christmas.
I have several favourite movies on this Channel, including my all time favourite Christmas Movie, The Christmas Card. I defy you watch that movie and not well up just a little bit. I bet you can’t.
The Abundance of Lights
Throughout the year, you can walk around a town or City and everything looks a bit dull, but when Christmas comes along, it’s a totally different story.
With lights and decorations being put up, you can’t help but admire the sights as you walk by.
Talking of which, just two weeks ago I was at my Apprenticeship Academy which is based in a huge UK city, and as I was walking back at the end of the day, all I could say were the most amazing lights from building to building. I had never seen anything like it.
There was truly a light in the darkness!
People Come Together for Others
What I have noticed is that people tend to show goodwill to others, more so at Christmas than at any other time throughout the year.
After all, it is a time for giving and it really brings a smile to my face.
Hate never seems to win.
However, this is something we need to practice at other times also and not just because it is December. We can do more and we can do better than this. We have proved it as well!
There we have it, 5 things I love and care about at Christmas time.
