These are a few of my favourite things...

I love all things Christmassy! For some of us, it’s our favourite time of year. There are so many things we all associate with the festive season. Here are my favourite things!

Food and drink

How could I compile a list like this without mentioning food and drink? If anything, food and drink is the best thing about Christmas. I love a delicious roast dinner with all the trimmings, seasonal hot beverages and mulled wine.

Spending time with friends

Even though some of my friends don't really celebrate Christmas, spending time with them is the best thing. Life gets in the way sometimes so Christmas is the best opportunity to spend quality time with my friends and hang out with them. We like to go to restaurants and winter attractions.

Activities and attractions

At Christmastime, there are so many things to do and so many places to visit, such as popping over to the local Christmas markets. Alternatively, one can visit London and enjoy the attractions: Winter Wonderland, the London Eye, Covent Garden, Harrods in Knightsbridge and Oxford Street.


Christmas entertainment is fun and enjoyable! I listen to festive tunes by various artists such as Mariah Carey, Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Paul McCartney, Nat King Cole and Wham! I like to watch a Christmas movies too – my favourite Christmas film is Home Alone 2: Lost In New York. The TV schedule this season is usually jam-packed with loads of Christmas specials, but for those of you who want to get out of the comfort of your sofa, going to watch a theatre or musical is your best bet. Recommended shows include the Nutcracker, The Snowman and Cinderella.

The tree

“O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree…”

The Christmas tree is kind of the most vital element in any household this season. For myself, the best thing about getting a Christmas tree is decorating it with baubles and fairy lights. Whether it is big or small, a Christmas is a lovely addition to any home.
