guaranteed sweetness

I love Christmas. I’m not sure what it is about Christmas Day, but I find that for 24 fantastic hours you can just forget about everything and enjoy the company of your family. There’s nothing niggling at you in the back of your mind, and all your worries that seem so important and unescapable throughout the year seem to fade away.

The run up to Christmas, however, seems to get less and less exciting every year. I remember when every day in December was beyond exciting, and now it’s hard to get too excited, even on Christmas Eve (although perhaps spending most of the day revising has something to do with that). Still, I’ve finished work for the day – the next three days, in fact – and am off to carols shortly, followed by drinks with friends and then, tomorrow, family. When you’re young, Christmas is exciting because wow, you get a pile of stuff all at once, but as you get older, Christmas remains exciting, but now because it allows you to spend lots and lots of time with people you love.

Everyone: Happy Christmas.
