‘Tis the season to be jolly, after all! Would it be Christmas if you hadn’t had at least one hazy morning and not remembered what you said? Whether it’s mulled wine, champers or a nice warm brew, the more the merrier!
We all have our favourites, from It’s a Wonderful Life to Die Hard. December is the time to curl up on the sofa and feel festive. Sadly, all that goes out the window when the little ones are about. Enjoy another year of watching Frozen… on repeat.
Had a few too many drinks and said the wrong thing? Decided that it’s the right time to perfect your Mariah Carey rendition at the work karaoke night? Had an awkward (and brief) office romance? Cringing and avoiding eye contact with your colleagues the following morning is all part and parcel of the annual get-together.
It is that special time of year where you reconnect with your loved ones, sharing fond memories and pulling crackers together. Although it always ends in at least one argument about who got who what, you wouldn’t have Christmas with the family any other way.
We’ve all been there: the clock is ticking, the shops are rammed and after running out of thoughtful gift ideas panic-buy mode sets in. I’m sure lactose-intolerant Auntie Jane will love that cheese board!
There’s always that one moment where the festive cheer doesn’t feel quite as jolly. You’ve heard I Wish It Could Be Christmas one time too many and you are one mince pie away from cancelling Christmas. It’s okay to embrace your inner Scrooge every now and then. Bah! Humbug!
