First of all, Merry Christmas everybody!!!
I hope you all have a great day filled with happiness, laughter, good food, good company and even some great new books! ;) I’m working the dayshift in the Hospital, and tonight my boyfriend and I are having dinner with our family.
Christmas is my all-time favorite holiday. I just love Christmas and everything about it. So today, I like to share my five reasons to love this day with you guys.
One of the things I look forward to all year are the Christmas decorations. I love decorating our home with Christmas stuff and lights. And every year I plan one day to go shopping for our tree and buying some new Christmas stuff. My boyfriend doesn’t really like all the Christmas stuff, but because I love it so much he always lets me get all crazy. So sweet!
This year I bought a little tree because our home just isn’t big enough for the big tree of my dreams! LOL. (But one day!!) This is our home in Christmas style this year:
Every year from December 6th one of the radio channels here in the Netherlands, becomes a Christmas music channel. And every year I look forward to changing the frequency so I can hear all the Christmas music. I just love how cozy Christmas music makes me feel. A lot of the music has been around for years but I still love listening to those tunes. My favorite Christmas song this year is 'This Christmas’ by Jessie James Decker. Too bad it isn’t played here in the Netherlands, but thank god for iTunes.
Another thing I look forward to each year and start thinking about early on, is Christmas gifts. I love shopping for Christmas gifts for my family. It’s just so much fun. I always like to buy a view things for each member of my family, ( I have a very small family, so no worries :P ) and I really try to make the gifts look great. This year’s Christmas gifts look like this:
One of the best things about Christmas is spending time with my family. I really enjoy the evenings we plan with each other. Although I have been working with Christmas for more than five years, my family always makes sure I can also be a part of the celebrations. Sometimes we add another day to Christmas, and I never have to think or worry about dinner. I just love sharing Christmas with the people I love.
And last but definitely not least, I love the food we eat at Christmas. It is different every year but it’s always a big happening and very delicious. I love having all those different courses and sitting around a fancy decorated table with each other. I can’t wait!!
