Listography - Top 5 things that make Christmas Christmas.

Not done one of these before so bare with me, sorry if I don't get the links right too!

1. Getting the tree and decorating it. I love getting the box of decorations down from the loft. I often try and buy some decorations in the sales, so come the next Christmas I have usually forgotten what goodies I have bought. The smell of real Christmas trees just makes it all feel lovely too, reminds me of Christmas's' when I was young too.

2. Mince pies...the year I was pregnant/had my little one you do not want to know how many mince pies were consumed from about October time, come to think of it I don't even want to know how many we had between us! But yeah, we stock up this time of year, and so do our waistlines...

3. Craft- I love making things, this year I made my son his advent calendar which took forever but I am really looking forward to getting it out for years to come. I also make cards etc too, which gets me into the Christmas spirit too.

4. Christmas Dinner- I love having all the family around one table, even if it can be a squeeze at times, I love a good roast dinner, so a Christmas dinner usually just tops it off nicely, and the left overs such a bubble and squeak the next day (so nice why don't we have it other times of the year)? Mum's roast potatoes are always the best too!

5. Family time- we don't always get much of it together, it's so nice to see close family and extended family. To and fro from peoples house, chaos and wrapping paper, food, drink, presents and most importantly laughter and love.

Can't wait to see my little boys face on Christmas morning too, he is two now so will understand it all a bit more this year, countdown begins!

Why not write your own list, at: katetakes5


  1. I only discovered Bubble& squeak a few years ago as we'd never had it but Hubby had it every boxing day (and often on Monday nights with leftovers from Sunday lunch)

    Great list - Merry Christmas!

  2. I think I have had it every year too! Thanks, Merry Christmas to you too!

  3. I love that squash around the table for Christmas dinner - makes it all the more festive! Thanks for joining in :)

  4. Handmade items really does make Christmas, and helps get you in the spirit. Definitely agree with that. And my little boy is a year behind yours, so looking forward to him being more into it next year,

  5. Great list. You are so right about number 5. Mmmm you've just reminded me about the mince pies I bought yesterday....! I hope you and your family have a lovely Christmas x

  6. Lovely list that really gets Christmas over to us. Not keen on mince pies myself though

  7. I love Christmas dinner! Especially since I can't cook - my family makes it and I get to enjoy it! But I'm on the clean-up crew, so we're all happy.

  8. Thank you for all your lovely comments. I hope that you all have a lovely Christmas! x
