The Reasons Why I Love Christmas!!

The Christmas songs and movies all mention it briefly, but this really is the season to be jolly and the most wonderful time of the year. There are so many things that make this time special, including the fact that we have to wait all year just to enjoy it. Now everyone has their own reasons as to why the holidays are the best, but for a little Christmas special, and seeing as I have been speaking so much about it over the month, I thought I’d share with you all the reasons why I love Christmas and hence why it is my favourite time of the year.

Christmas movie watch-list!

In case it wasn’t clear already, what with all the Christmas-related blog posts and the abundance of holiday cheer I’m continually throwing out at all of you, I absolutely adore anything Christmas and movies are no exception. So … I’d like to invite you all to join a little challenge with me: to try and watch every single one of the movies on this list before Christmas. You can do it alone, with your partner or with your family but the goal of this challenge is to get you into the holiday spirit but also to force you to take some time for yourself and just relax with your snuggly blanket. So, without further ado, here is my list of favourite holiday films and my challenge for you to get that Christmas cheer going. Good luck!

How to throw the ultimate holiday/Christmas Party!

I’ve always loved hosting holiday parties, and it has been something I’ve done with my family for many years. There is really nothing better than a good get-together during the holiday season. Which is kind of the inspiration for my post today. I know how overwhelming even the thought of hosting a party can be before you’ve even gotten to the different parts of it but by the end of this post, all you should feel prepped and ready to host the ultimate holiday party!

Dealing with Tinselitis – a Case of Festive Season Madness

We all know how crazy the holiday season can get. While it is a magical time of year that many of us hope to enjoy, it can also get insanely busy and chaotic. There are all the parties to attend or host; gifts and gifts and more gifts; everything just seems so expensive; all the cooking and then cleaning up again; you have to decorate and make everything seem festive. There is so much pressure for things to be perfect and everyone else either seems overly enthusiastic or like they should be moving in with the Grinch before his heart grew. It’s as if the world has an extreme case of tinselitis and sometimes, even if you love/like/don’t mind the holidays, it just becomes too stressful to bare the festive season madness. Well, I am here to tell you not to worry because I will help you survive any stresses you have about getting through the madness surrounding the festive season. Keep reading for more

Best-ever Christmas Cookies (and what your favourite Christmas cookie says about you) :D

It’s official. December is here. And that can only mean one thing …

CHRISTMAS COOKIES!

Come on, be honest with yourself. No matter how healthy you are, or how much you say you don’t have a sweet tooth, I don’t think there is one of us who can resist getting into the holiday season by munching on a Christmas cookie. Let’s face it. We are all Cookie Monsters at this time of year, but who can blame us? There are just so many delicious treats to choose from. There’s gingerbread, sugar cookies, peppermint bark and much much more and the fact that they are in ample supply this time of year is just too much temptation to resist. This is the time of year where cookie lovers (and people in general) everywhere can eat and bake their hearts out. And the best part is that the holidays are a perfect no-judgement period.
