I arrived back in Hertfordshire today for the Christmas holidays and it’s so nice to be in my warm and cosy home, with my family and all of the Christmas decorations. At Christmas time, there really is ‘no place like home’ and I feel like the Christmas season has really begun, now that I’m home. I’m going to be talking about why I love being home at Christmas time on my blog today.
1. The Christmas tree.
My Mum decorates our tree so beautifully every year. It’s purple, bronze and gold-themed and when the fairy lights are switched on, it makes the living room look so magical.
2. Spending time with my family.
At Christmas time, we have lots of family days. We’ll sit at the dining table with good food and chat for hours. We often host, which means my house is at the centre of the festivities at Christmas.
3. Having a TV.
This sounds like an odd one, but at University we don’t have a TV. It’s so nice being able to watch Christmas movies and TV programs on the sofa in our lounge.
