Oh hello. I bet you’re expecting to read a corny post about how I love gift giving and spending time with family. Whilst that’s true, there are other reasons why the festive period is a particularly merry time for me. Here are a few real reasons why Christmas is my favourite time of Year.



I like to eat. Need I say more? All sorts of delicious combinations of food come out this time of year and it’s a feast for the senses.


I’m all about saving some dolla, and with Christmas follows the sales. I’ll be hitting those shops up on Boxing Day and investing in some items for the next year to come.


Yes, giving them is a lovely feeling but isn’t it lush to feel spoiled by your favourite people? We all like to have someone take a little time to put effort into a thoughtful idea for a gift for Christmas. Whether this be a homemade item or an expensive item of jewellery it really is lovely to feel a little over indulgent (without spending).

Party Season

A Christmas Party? A local event? I do NOT need another excuse to dress up thank you Sir. I love how busy my weeks are during this period and how much I see my friends out and about. Usually with a cocktail in hand.

A Week off work

Yep I said it, and I’m genuinely sorry for those that don’t get this. Having a week off work is the best. I may just set up camp on the sofa this year in my pyjamas and binge watch Disney films back to back whilst eating Christmas turkey sandwiches. Breaks will be accounted for to shower (who am I kidding? Bathe!)

No Diet Talk

I find that before Christmas the media calms down on the whole diet talk and stops trying to over sell pills or exercise machines that I’ll never use. Unfortunately what follows is the whole New Year, New Me facade about improving our bodies. Not to worry though, I’ll be comatose for the reason above’s points.

What do you like about this time of year?
