What's Your Favourite Thing About Christmas?

Hello all! How is your run up to Christmas going? We've been busy visiting The Boyfriend's family, going to carol concerts, wandering through the Christmas markets in town, drinking mulled wine... :)

My question to you is: What's your favourite part of Christmas (or this time of year)?

I'll start! 

My favourite part is putting up the Christmas tree with my family, with the CD full of top tunes blaring in the background (favourite songs: Wonderful Christmastime - Paul McCartney, Stop the Cavalry - Jona Lewie, Baby It's Cold Outside - Tom Jones and Cerys Matthews). 

Wearing a scarf, wandering through the Christmas craft fayres with the family (perhaps with a cheeky cup of mulled wine to keep you warm!)

Wrapping Christmas presents with my sister with a movie on in the background. (Top Christmas films: Elf, The Santa Clause, Love Actually).

Carol concerts - am I the only one who can't hit most of the notes in 'Hark the Herald Angels Sing'?

Hope you are all having a nice month! Only a week to go! :)

For me it has to be food. I love baking and I love other people baking and sampling each others home made fare. Or baking/cooking with someone else. Because I live by myself cooking is usually a very solitary activity so it is lovely to be baking with someone and chatting while we do it.

I love Christmas lights, though I haven't put any up. And I like the generally festive atmosphere.

Lights, trees decorated, music, children, packages, special food, anything that is Christmasy. I just love Christmas.

This is such a good question! I am going to pose it on my blog.

I love everything about christmas-the lights, all the store windows decorated, the trees and of course the food. People seem to be in a happy mood. It gets so dark and dreary after Christmas. I wish the lights would stay up longer.
