Best Season of the Year

Today the best season of the year officially started - 1st of December. That means Christmas is coming up soon. I love December - the exciting anticipation, the festive feeling, Christmas songs on the radio, evenings of tea or mulled wine, gingerbread, and if we are lucky even snow.

I put together a little Christmas list and try to keep up with it and share some of the points listed with you.

What are your Pre-Christmas traditions? Is there anything you always do before Christmas Eve?

1.     Watch „The Holiday“
