Season Musing's - Winter

I’m going to start off firstly by saying Christmas is the best time of the year.

The transition from Autumn into Winter, when all the dark brown and red leaves that have fallen off the now bare trees get crisp with frost. The hats, gloves and scarves come out, electric blankets and nine pairs of socks too.

The trees, decorations, the lights, the pubs packed with festivity and a happy murmur can be heard as soon as the doors open until the chilly early hours. Smiling happy faces, meeting new people, seeing people you’ve not seen for years, everyone comes together.

The children get excited and the present buying begins. Every day their eager little bodies rush out of bed and throw open the curtains to find out if today was the day that outside is covered in fresh white snow. I still do this sometimes.

Decorating your house becomes a weekend activity blasting out the 2011 Michael Buble Christmas album getting ready for your family to come together. Food is the centre of your attention and the TV Christmas specials are in full speed.

Ice skating becomes everyone’s new favourite hobby and warm log fires are your new favourite smell. Christmas eve, checking the fridge to make sure you’ve left one mince pie for Santa and a carrot for Rudolph ready to put out later tonight by the fireplace so they can have a snack while you're snuggled up in bed.

Christmas day is here and you know it was all worth it. Ready to go again next year.
