What December means to me...

To know me is to know I love December.  There's visits to Santa, Yule, Christmas, my birthday, parties, and, more importantly, most people are at their most happiest.  I love to see the smiles and excitement of children of all ages at this time of year.

It all starts when the Christmas magazines, the Boots Christmas catalogue and the Lindt chocolate Santas arrive in the shops.  Not forgetting the twinkly lights!  The Christmas films! Then there's all the plans with family and friends - shopping, meals, watching Christmas films, just celebrating being together.  The weather turning cold and the possibility of snow!

I know that all the big annual celebrations are in one week for me, and that means December was always going to be the most favourite of months for me.

What does December mean to you?
