Reasons why i love christmas.
When it comes to Christmas i'm all about sticking to traditions :) One of my and my girls favorite traditions is our annual Christmas Ladies Brunch at my house. I just love cooking and baking for them, decorating the table and hosting this beautiful tiny event for all my besties! I love creating goody bags and putting a candy cane on their plate :) It truly makes me happy :)
I have some other nice christmas traditions, i like to share with you: Christmas baking, getting new PJ's on Christmas Eve, decorating the house, tree decoration!, christmas dinner!
I love baking, and i really go all out when it comes to christmas baking. My favorite treat this year have to be my homemade gingerbread snowflakes. They are sooo good. Yummy :)
Every year on Christmas Eve my mom gets me and my brother a new pair of PJ's and i love wearing them.
As soon as the Christmas season officially starts, i start decorating :) I always take a saturday afternoon to make christmas wreaths for my loved ones and one for myself :) This year i made the beautiful silver, purple and pink wreath to go with my bedroom colors :)
Since i was little my dad and i always decorated the tree together. Before we start decorating the tree, we go out an buy the prettiest real tree that sell. And think about a decoration theme we want to go for. This year we went for gold/red themed tree. ( The picture above is one of my fav. vintage ornaments we own. We have a bunch of these and similar ones. I adore them!)
I'm not gonna lie, i really enjoy receiving gifts :) but not as much as i adore giving gifts!
There's truly nothing better than giving gifts and the process behind it! I love taking the time to think about great and unique ways to make my loved ones happy. Walking through the beautiful (but cheesy) decorated malls or fancy boutiques to find the perfect gift for someone. Or even making things myself to surprise someone special. I just love it :) I won't even start talking about christmas gift wrapping! I turn into a perfectionist when it comes to gift wrapping! But the best thing about giving gifts is the moment when you actually give it to someone. Seeing the happy and surprised look on their face is what satifises me most.
Another thing i love about christmas is having an excuse to watch all the cheesy Christmas Movies (i secretly looooove so much) and to listen to as much Christmas Music as i want :) This years holiday playlist is basically a mix of Michael Bublé, Taylor Swift and Glee. And i love it. I know every song my heart and i blast around my house and car :D
Why do you like/love christmas? What's your favorite thing about it?
