Festive greetings all! 😉
How is it already three weeks to Christmas?? I’m so excited, honestly the lead up is my favourite part of the year!!! I thought that as part of it I would start doing weekly updates on where I’m at with the preparations/lead up to Christmas!
It’s the fourth, and we still have yet to get our Christmas tree (well as I write this on the 3rd we haven’t got it haha!). The Christmas tree for me is when it starts to feel really real, like properly Christmassy! Sitting under the Christmas tree with the lights on at night is one of my favourite Christmas things to do! Other than the actual day of course 😉
I went to a Christmas market with my friends on the 1st of December, which I enjoyed, though it was very different from a German one, for obvious reasons 😉 I.e. it was hot and sunny, and my friends got shaved ice to eat rather than hot chocolates haha! Plus we went to the beach afterwards, because why not? 😉
My family and I went to Hokitika on the West Coast on Sunday, as a kind of tradition thing, because my brother is going overseas next weekend. Plus it was a year since we went on a road trip before I went to Germany. Hopefully we’re altogether for Christmas next year haha! 😉 Though I wouldn’t mind going back to Germany for Christmas. Honestly, once you’ve experienced it I don’t know how you can back to a summer Christmas (sorry NZ). I still love summer Christmas though (I even wrote a whole post on it in 2016 lol!).
I have yet to go present shopping, though I have bought one present so far. So yeah a little unorganised on that front, but I’ll get there! 😉 Maybe in a week I’ll have more to add on that front!
How is your lead up to Christmas going? What goals do you have? How has your December been so far? I’d love to know! Also, are you doing blogmas? Let me know in the comments and I’ll go check it out! 🙂
