Blogmas Day 8: Odd things that people do at Christmas

I picked a few things I find slightly odd that happen over the Christmas period and nobody really questions it.

  • You feel that the term ‘sod it its Christmas’ is the answer for everything

  • Wishing people a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year even if you have never met them in your life before and don’t intend on seeing them again.

  • Feeling the need to kiss anyone in sight on New years just because you feel you need to and because you are half pissed …even if you think you’re the unfortunate one you wont get away without a smooch even if its from a gran with no teeth in.

  • Going super silly and buying every bugger in sight a drink just because its Christmas. Only the next morning do you realise that you have emptied out your wallet that had a fair few poundage in…oh sod it its Christmas.

  • Only at Christmas can you get away with wearing a cringe worthy jumper with random quotes on it/ a giant snowman/ father Christmas.

Blogmas Day 7:Christmas Songs Now and Then

yes you guessed it…well the title did give it away a little bit….ok a lot.

I’m a lover of music, can’t go a day without listening to it on either the radio, Spotify or my iTunes. so i thought why not let you see what Christmas songs i love from back in the day and some more recent ones.

Use the scroller at the side to see them all…

Here is the playlist i made on Spotify with some real beauts on there that will have you singing your little hearts out…or your socks off 🙂

Hope you are all in the swing of Christmas so far…Much love xx

Blogmas Day 6: It Feels Like Christmas When…

It feels like Christmas When…..

  • When you hear a Christmas song…in December of course. Mine is Fairy tale of New York (you scumbag you maggot you cheap lousy faggot).
  • There is mulled wine when you go somewhere to eat…I’m not a fan of it myself.

 

  • Proper mince pies are out in the supermarket and the bakeries. Can’t beat a bit of squirty cream with mine.

 

  • Your town/village puts up their festive lights…some make more effort than others.

 

  • When you put up your Christmas Decs…there’s no denying then that its getting nearer.

 

  • Father Christmas (the bloke dressed up waving like some silly bugger) comes around on the float blaring ‘oh I wish it could be Christmas everyday.’

 

  • The Christmas jumpers are out in shops. I’ll own up I have two. Don’t know if they’ll fit this year

 

  • Its snowing outside. Rarely do we get it here in England but that’s when it really feels Christmassy.

 

  • When all major shops bring out the gorgeous smelling festive candles. I always like the cinnamon ones.

Blogmas Day 4: Helpful Christmas Tips

Since most of us at Christmas are super stressed and we want everything to be perfect for this one special day which we call Christmas. I thought I would go researching and here are some tips to help you enjoy it and still have hair on your head by the end of it.

  • Fork out the address book and hopefully your bought Christmas cards (you best go buy some if you haven’t) – a little secret buy next years after Christmas to save pennies.
  • Write the cards , get stamps and send them off before the cut off date(check the post office website for details) – deliver if they are local.
  • Make an inventory of what you have in the cupboard and what you think you need to feed the mouths of your guests at Christmas. Then go out and find your bargain buys at the supermarket.
  • Create a gift list and buy what they would like not what you think they may like as it may be end up being an unwanted present. Don’t lose the receipts.
  • Get the tree out the attic/loft or go purchase one and go absolutely mad with the decorations – show your creative streak.
  • Go to Christmas fayres and get into the Christmas spirit
  • Blast out a Christmas playlist and sing your heart out and dance round like a loon.
  • Make sure you have enough wrapping paper and then get on and wrap your gifts. For the lazy bums enough gift bags.
  • Sort out arrangements for the big day, lighten the load and help each other along.
  • Open the door to a Christmas caroller even if they sound like a strangled cat, they are trying their best. pop them a pound or what you can spare for their charity and on their way they go.
  • Go visit elderly friends and relatives, sometimes they are left on the back burner because they’ve endured so many Christmases. Elderly people get sad this time of year so make someone smile this Christmas.
  • Make sure you have got the mince pies cos they are yummy and obviously Santa likes them too
  • Put on your favourite Christmas Film, light the fire, put some candles on, wrap up in a blanket and enjoy.

Merry Christmas xx

Blogmas Day 3: Dear Santa 

🎅🏼 Dear Santa,

I haven’t wrote to you in a while, I’m sorry. This time I’m not asking for much not like other years when I wanted half the Argos catalogue.

I can guarantee you it won’t cost you a penny and it’s as light as a feather so would be easy to deliver. I don’t know where to start but I guess I’ll start right here.

Since last Christmas I have been quite under the weather. Spending more time in hospital than in my humble abode. I didn’t ask for any of it but this I wanted to ask.

Please on Christmas Day or at the stroke of 12 for new year. Can you please bring me better health, a permanent smile and the love of my life if you can find them.

I hope it’s not too much to wish for but I really think I deserve it. Plus I’ve been super good ( well 90%).

So will say this to you in advance

Many thanks

Holly 🎅🏼
