I’ve gotten to that age where I don’t ask for anything major or
specific for Christmas, instead I’m at that point where I enjoy giving presents to people and just making memories. This post contains part of my Christmas
‘to-do’ list, in other words it’s part of my agenda for December (eeeekk!).
– Visit a Christmas Market – Each year I tend to visit the Winchester
Christmas Market with my family and/or friends, however this year it’s time for
a change of scenery; Joe and I are going to head up to Bath for the day to
visit their market and have a shop. Shopping, Christmas food and pretty
scenery, it’s one of my favourite things to do. I would highly recommend the
Winchester Market if you’re near the area.
– Volunteering – There are so many different ways to volunteer at this
time of the year, whether that be at a food bank; donating toys, doing
something for your local community or donating money to causes.
This year I will be spending a day with Wave 105 – Cash for Kinds – in conjunction with their Christmas Toy Appeal, where people from all around the
local area have been donating toys for those children who will otherwise not
receive a gift this Christmas. I will be wrapping/sorting/packing presents for a day! I will
also be donating toys to the cause.
– Create Joe a stocking – So….Joe informed me that he’s never had a
stocking before and I was in shock. I’m not someone who’s fussed about
receiving presents but I have to admit that I love receiving a stocking, and as
it’s one of my favourite things about Christmas I can’t not give Joe his first
ever stocking. I’m currently on a mission to find random and useful gifts to
fill it with. Project: “Create Joe a Stocking” is well and truly underway.
– Cook a Christmas meal for the family – I’m not going to cook the roast
dinner on Christmas day because I don’t want to ruin everyone’s day, therefore
I will leave my mum to do this haha! But on a day in December I aim to cook my
parents and Joe a 3 course meal, from scratch, on my own. I’ve never cooked one
meal before on my own never mind a three course meal for 4 people but for some
reason I would really like to do it! I still need to pick a menu but I will let
you know how it goes.
Do you have any special traditions or things that you like to do at
this time of year? I love hearing about other people’s Christmas’ as every
family seems to have their own routine and traditions.
