Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting. It is happiness because we see joy in people. It is forgetting in self and finding time for others. It is discarding the meaningless and stressing true values.
– THOMAS MONSON
We made it, it is finally December. I can now blast my favourite Christmas playlist (listen along here), put up the Christmas decorations, wear my Christmas pyjamas and enjoy the neighbourhood light display without fear of being a little too enthusiastic (but really, is there even such a thing?). Similarly, if you're anything like me, you hardly change your phone background so I thought it's the perfect time to do just that. Something quite simple, nothing too in your face, but still festive. The backgrounds above can be found here (first, second, third).
I really do think the weeks leading up to Christmas are the most magical time of the year; there are plenty of festive parties and gatherings of family and friends. It also gives you time to reflect on the year and show gratitude to your nearest and dearest. That said, I better start writing my Christmas cards...
Let the countdown to Christmas begin!
How do you celebrate in the weeks leading up to Christmas?
