Going Christmas Shopping:
I love that feeling knowing that you've found the exact right gift for someone. The anticipation of watching the joy on their face is unforgettable. I also really love going Christmas shopping with people I love and making a day of it. This always adds to the overall Christmas experience - spending time with the people that matter most.
Looking at Christmas Lights:
Every year on Christmas Eve, my family and I drive around and look at all of the Christmas lights in the neighborhood. It is always one of my favourite things to do. We listen to Christmas music in the car and decide which houses we think are decorated the best.
Watching Christmas Movies:
When it comes to Christmas music and Christmas movies, I am a total junkie. I just can't get enough! I have dozens of movies that I watch over and over. I always get that fuzzy feeling in the pit of my stomach when I watch them.
Some of my favourite Christmas movies are Christmas With the Kranks, Doug's Secret Christmas, A Christmas Story, and Miracle on 34th Street. One of my favourite Christmas traditions is watching Miracle on 34th Street by myself, curled up on the couch. That is always the moment when it feels like the Christmas season has started.
And a new Christmas tradition - Drinking White Hot Chocolate:
Recently my boyfriend introduced me to White Hot Chocolate from Second Cup. This is perhaps the yummiest holiday beverage ever! Not going to lie, I see a lot of these in my future. Delicious! What I love most is having a new tradition to share with someone who means the world to me.
