A little love for December

I love December, it’s the time of the year when you can burn scented candles with names like ‘Christmas cookie’. Which I already do since September but that’s beside the point. So why exactly is December the best? In this post, I give you ten of the reasons I love December.

Almost the whole world is in celebration, everyone is buying presents and thinking about other people in their lives. This is so nice, it’s the time of year when people don’t only think about themselves.

Christmas lights and candles
I love fairy lights and lovely candles. It makes life so cosy. I spent a lot of time at home in the winter and I like to make my room a bit cutter and prettier with little lights and my candles. It makes me feel Christmassy. When I lived in England I had a Christmas-themed room and it made me feel so happy. Christmas is such a happy time, when you spend all your time with your loved ones. Where you wish for snow. So for me, I like to transform my room to get myself in the Christmas spirit.

Hot cocoa
Hot cocoa is the best. Especially when it’s cold outside and when you can warm up when a good movie is playing or a good song. Hot cocoa on the sofa with a good film or book is the best.

I remember this one time when I was little when my mum woke me up late at night. We all went outside to play in the snow. It was so cold and so pretty in the night’s air. The next day almost all the snow was gone because the sun had warmed up the earth. It’s a memory I hold dear. I love snow and seeing snowfall. Snow makes the world turn differently. Every year, I wish for snow because it adds to the winter fun.

New years
I always feel like people are a little kinder and a little sweeter to one another in between Christmas and New Year’s. So the time between Christmas are amazing happy moments.

Baking and pies
Oh baking, I love it. I always feel that December is such a cozy month to get your baking tins out and start baking. Want some ideas? Click here!

Christmas stories and films
December is THE time when you can finally go and watch Christmas films and sing Christmas songs without everyone telling you Christmas is months away. But you can blast it in summer if you want to. I love Christmas playlists and it brings you into the spirit.

Cosy clothes
I love warm cosy jumpers, sweet pj’s, and my cozy blankets, cushions, and every other piece of cosines I own. I love being all snuggled up. When it’s hot out that’s not an option so the winter is in that aspect my best friend.
