On the Tenth Day of Christmas…

So this is my tenth post of my Twelve Days of Christmas series and I’m going to be honest I haven’t got anything really significant to write about, apologies. I’m feeling Christmassy and the Christmas tree is looking lovely, it’s lit up and decked out with decorations, but nothing in my day has made me want to write a Christmassy post.

Christmas Time

Today I went back to my part time job which is just a holiday job in-between uni terms and I had forgotten how much I dislike working. Now, I don’t mind the people I work with, they’re actually really nice. But, it’s just so boring and causes so much stress for so little pay…but hey ho that’s life!

The worst news I found out today and something that has put a downer on my whole day was this…now brace yourselves because it’s heartbreaking news, indeed it is.

So here we go…I found out that I have to work Boxing Day! YEAH! That’s right, Boxing Day, it sucketh! I know people have much worse jobs and have to work Christmas day and all that jazz, but working in a part time job in retail, I just think what’s the point? Why can’t people go shopping on the 27th instead?

It’s Christmas time, so I shouldn’t moan but I would like my company to realise they have ruined, yes ruined my Christmas. Cheers!

And that has been your daily fix of Christmas.

On the Eight Day of Christmas…

English: A bauble on a Christmas tree.

Tree Decorations

It has been eight days since I started my Twelve days of Christmas series and it’s worrying how quickly my life is flying by. Today the post is about Christmas trees, because they’re just lovely, aren’t they?

Now we all love a festive Christmas tree but the big question is, do we have a real one or a fake one? Fake Christmas trees are certainly practical and create a lot less mess but nothing beats a good old proper,¬†living Christmas tree. The smell of the pine and ¬†treacherous falling needles just have to be part of everyone’s Christmas scene, surely.

Each year my family get’s a real Christmas tree, and yes, it dutifully makes a good mess, but it’s lovely and feels much more festive than a perfectly shaped plastic one. The tree’s imperfections are something that makes it even more loveable. A wonky, little tree covered head to toe in decorations is what practically signifies Christmas in my households, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. Well, actually on second thoughts, maybe a perfect, tall, dark fake tree would do it…

oh christmas tree, oh christmas treeAnd that people has been your daily fix of Christmas.

On the Fourth Day of Christmas…

Christmas Decorations

So today is the four post of my Twelve Days of Christmas and today it’s all about the old decorations. Now I love decorations, they really add to the whole festive theme, but and this is the big question: how much is too much?

We all like to put the decorations up and flounce around in tinsel for a good 5minutes. But then it comes to the point when we thing, hang on has this got tacky? Oh no, what will the neighbours think? I can’t have tacky decorations!

Is there ever a limit? Well, personally I think there definitely is a limit, and that limit should not be breached! When there are so many lights and decorations that your house looks like something out of a cartoon that is the time to reassess an take some down. It’s simple, if you can’t see at least half your house clearly then you’re bordering on tacky. Call me a kill-joy if you must.

So my advice is to get those decorations up, but in moderation, we don’t want a freak show going on now do we? Nobody wants to admit that it is because of their house that the electricity for the road is being cut off! So this Christmas let’s keep it orderly but festive! Woo, it’s another day closer to Christmas!

It’s a short one but without doubt you’ve just had your daily fix of Christmas.
