#12daysofparenting16 – 12 Things Christmas Means to Me

Christmas is a particularly cheerful and family orientated time of year for me. I have quite a large family (in terms of extended family) and it is the one time of year I get to see most of them so for me Christmas means a lot of things…

  1. Christmas ultimately for me is a time for sharing with friends and family.
  2. It is is an escape from the pressures of daily working life!
  3. This year it has given me the chance to spend quality time with my beautiful 13 month old daughter!
  4. Christmas is a time for giving.
  5. Christmas means being able to stuff your face with pigs in blankets!
  6. Christmas to me means having a perfect excuse to have an alcoholic beverage before midday!
  7. Christmas is a time for spoiling those closest to us!
  8. Christmas gives us a chance to reconnect with those friends we may have spoken to through out the year but not actually seen!
  9. Christmas to me brings a bit of magic into this dull and solemn world! The magic of Christmas is truly uplifting!
  10. Christmas to me means visiting blokes dressed as Santa with your children and feeling like a kid yourself!
  11. I also enjoy wrapping presents and writing Christmas cards!
  12. And last but not least decorating your house with Christmassy items!

Thank you for taking the time to read!
