Santa Claus is coming to town
Christmas is my favourite time of the year! It feels magical, exciting and like anything is possible (maybe I've watched one too many Christmas movies). If you aren't already as excited as a little child going to Disneyland for the first time, then I have some reasons to get you pumped for this festive season that is upon us.



1. The food

It's a common fact that people gain at least 5kg over the holiday season. I'm preparing for my weight gain by losing some now and by doing that, when 2 weeks of family BBQs come round, I won't have to go stingy on food.

2. Christmas cheer

For some reason from December the 1st to Boxing day, there seems to be Christmas cheer bouncing from everywhere. The shopping malls are full of life and decorations, people are off from work and school and are spending more time with family and friends, so they are happier and it is the season for giving, so amazing things are happening all around us!

3. Presents

Don't act like this doesn't excite you. I remember one Christmas I was so excited to open my presents that I vomited and then everyone opened theirs at 4am (my bad) and went back to bed and I vomited again because I was still so excited. It's not just the gift receiving, but it's the giving too. It's a wonderful tradition and I hope you all get everything you want this year or even some great surprises too.

4. Having Holidays

If you are one of the lucky people that managed to get time off around Christmas, I give you my sincerest of cyber high fives. Sadly I have to work all through Christmas and New Year's but I get a few days off here and there, which I'm going to embrace. You just have to use the time you have wisely!

5. Christmas Light cruising

Oh my gosh, I could do this every night of the year, if electricity bills weren't an issue. They light up (no pun intended) my night and really bring out my Christmas spirit. Make sure you get out around your area at least once this year, because the time and effort that is put into some houses is amazing and if you have kids, they will love it.
