Even though my tastes in interior design are a little more unique than others with an industrial, steampunk and eclectic style, my Christmas Decor is traditional and bright. I don’t apologise for the fact that our two, yes two, Christmas trees have adorned our home since the middle of November. With a sick and poorly A pretty much all of November and a baby nestled frequently in my arms, I took the opportunity to get the decorations out of the attic whenever I could. It took me two weeks to put the tinsel out but by the start of December, our home was glorious lit up for Christmas. Take a peek.
Christmas is my favourite time of year. I know a million other people feel the same and there is nothing new to someone loving Christmas but I can’t be a blogger and not write about what makes me incredible happy when the festive songs start playing in the shopping centers. When I was a kid, growing up in the 80’s wasn’t a piece of cake, not that I noticed. Our parents always made Christmas incredibly special. It was and still is, a time of family, love, happiness and joy. We are the inevitable cliché of Christmas and I love it! Christmas Eve, however, has always been my favourite part of the the festive season. With the build up, the excitement, the day before atmosphere, the prep for the big day, it was always a busy and happily chaotic day. It was, and still is, almost like a mini celebration, a mini Christmas Day without the presents. But presents aren’t always needed. What is important is to be present yourself. To be present, in the moment, with family and friends at Christmas.
