Christmas

Z is for zzzzz

It’s time for a snooze now after these long holidays. As with many festive family days, I have seen many a family member snoozing on the sofa after dinner. Have some amazing images, but will not post them 🙂 I hope you all have a great start of the year and I will be back … Continue reading »

U is for Unwrapping

The only thing that children want to do with Christmas is unwrapping their presents. For days they have been looking excitingly at the tree, waiting for presents to appear. Sleeping is out of the question, especially on Christmas Eve. They will wake up really early in the morning on Christmas Day to see what Santa … Continue reading »

T is for Tulips

Tulips might not be the first flower that comes to mind when thinking about Christmas, but many bouquets will contain these famous Dutch flowers. Most commonly they will be red or white, but there are many other varieties and colours available. It is a bit rare to get tulips in the winter as they normally … Continue reading »

S is for Snow

The best Christmas for me is waking up early in the morning, opening the curtains and see everything covered in a layer of snow. Not that I am such a snow fan, but it just adds that little bit of magic to the day. It also means you appreciate a warm house and good food … Continue reading »

R is for Reindeer and Red

Next to camels, reindeer are the most important animals in relation to Christmas. The story goes that Santa’s sleigh is pulled by 8 flying reindeer called Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder, and Blitzen. The most famous reindeer is Rudolph, though he was not part of the original story. He is normally depicted as … Continue reading »

Q is for Quaint

How can you realistically write an article about the letter Q in relation to Christmas? Let’s have some facts first. Q, the 17th letter in the English alphabet, is the second most rarely used letter, with a frequency of just 0.09% in words. It is more frequent than Z, however. So that does not really … Continue reading »

P is for Present

The meaning of Christmas has changed over the decades from a religious and relatively sober festival to an occasion whereby extravagant gifts are exchanged. I just read an article this week that women expect their partner to spend half their week salary on gifts for her, which equates to just under £300 (about $500). Top … Continue reading »

O is for Outside

What I love about a proper winters day is the cold crisp weather. Nothing feels better than going out for a walk, enjoy the sun and coldness followed of course by returning to a warm home. Especially after sitting indoors and eating a lot over the Christmas days it is a great way to feel … Continue reading »

N is for Nativity

It’s this time of the year again that many children will be asked to take part in the yearly school Nativity play. Many tears will be shed over the fact that they cannot play Joseph or Maria. Many proud parents will have to show up at school to watch their children act, with of course … Continue reading »

M is for Market and Music

What I really enjoy on the run up to Christmas is visiting different local Christmas markets. Although far more popular in Germany, you can slowly see them appearing in the UK. Traditionally the markets start on the first week of advent and stay until Christmas. You can find the most amazing gifts and foods in … Continue reading »
