Sunday's ramblings: What makes December magical?

Sunday, December 01, 2013


Since today is the 1st of December, I decided to tell you a few things that make December magical for me. 
The Christmas countdown can now officially began and also, don't forget to eat the first chocolate from your advent calender.


 1. Snow: I'm all for keeping the warm and sunny weather for as long as we can, but December, especially around Christmas and New Year, has to be filled with snow. I just love waking up and seeing that everything is white outside and you're lying under a warm blanket and sipping on a hot cup of tea or hot chocolate.


2. Presents: Even though every year I mainly know what I'm getting, I still get very excited when I see all the presents under the tree. I don't just like receiving, I also love giving. I actually quite enjoy Christmas shopping and searching for all the things that I think would be great for my family and friends. It's such a joy to see facial expressions of others when they get something they've wished for.


3. Decorating: I honestly think that putting up the Christmas tree has been one of my favourite things to do since I can remember. I can actually get quite bossy when it comes to it, and I always have to be the one that puts the star on top of the tree. I actually tried to convince my Mum to put it up today, but she wasn't feeling it, so I guess I'll have to wait for a little bit longer.


4. Fuzzy socks: I hate wearing slippers, so fuzzy socks are one of the best things ever. I have way too many pairs, but I still love getting  new ones. They're just so warm and cosy and they looks super cute.


5. Baking: I love baking year round, but there's just something about baking in winter that makes it even more special. Christmas cookies, cupcakes, potica, home made bread, apple pie,... Just writing about it makes me want to go and bake something.


 6. Mulled wine and hot chocolate: My favourite drinks in the winter. They both keep you warm and they both taste delicious.


7. Candles: Burning candles becomes my hobby in December. Probably not a day probably by that I don't burn a candle. Currently I'm burning the Yankee Candle's Christmas cookie in my room, but we also have a candle in the kitchen and on the hallway. In my student apartment I'm mostly using Yankee candle's tarts and I also have a Glade plug-in that smells like Christmas in the bottle.


8. Watching movies: Sundays in December are meant for cuddling up in bed with the softest blanket and watching classic Christmas movies. Every year I watch the Home alone movie series, I also love the Elf and Love actually, but the ''Christmas movie must'' for me is the Holiday.


9. Fireworks: Ah, I love fireworks, they're just so magical and they make me feel all mushy and emotional. Some day I would really, really love to have fireworks for my birthday.


10. Lights: I love how everything seem to be so bright in December. Houses and streets are all decorated and festive and everything seems to be more peaceful and calm.

Of course there are so many more things I love about December, but these are just some of my favourite ones.

What makes December magical in your eyes?

  1. Zanimiv post. Se strinjam z vsem, meni so tudi vse točke všeč glede decembra, edino prva ne, ne maram snega, pa niti zasneženi božič mi ne pomeni nič posebnega, meni je bolj važno vzdušje v hiši. :)

  4. Js mam kurjenje sveč za hobi kar čez celo leto. Pač meditacija brez sveč ne obstaja :D Nisem ravno fanica snega, ker nimam obutve in oblačil za na sneg, vožnja je pain in the ass, če je pa led pa tako ne morem peš od doma nikamor, namreč živim na "griču" in hoja v dolino je no go :D
    Ravno tako ne maram ognjemeta oz se ga malce bojim, recmo, da mi je raketa v glavo priletela in zažgala lase in bundo, ravno tako sem se zelo udarla v bok, kar se mi še danes pozna :) pa boge živali, ki morjo to poslušat in boga narava, ki mora trpeti posledice onesnaženja raket in petard.
    Edino fuzzy sock ... to pa ja :D

      Haha, me je kar nasmejalo tole...Se pa strinjam drugače glede živali in narave, ampak meni je še vedno zelo, zelo všeč. Samo petarde so pa res no-go zame :)
