The meaning of Christmas is different for everyone! Day 3 of Blogmas is all about what Christmas means to me!

The meaning of Christmas is a classic line from most films, adverts, books and everyday conversations about Christmas. I think the meaning of Christmas is different for everyone as it’s rooted in how you spent Christmas as a child.

For me, the meaning of Christmas is that feeling when you get home into the warmth after going for a walk in the crisp cold air.

It’s when you snuggle up under a blanket to watch a Christmas movie in the glow of the Christmas lights.

It’s the feeling of walking through a Christmas market, smelling mince pies, beer, bratwursts and hearing everyone’s joyful laughter.

It’s the smell of the Christmas tree and tinsel. It’s getting covered in the dust that’s coated the Christmas decorations for the past year.

It’s the anticipation of Christmas, a little fuzzy feeling in the pit of your stomach.

It’s giving out presents, chosen specifically for a loved one and watching them open it.

It’s Christmas food and lots of it, especially pigs in blankets! It’s the excitement of knowing you’ll be eating leftover Christmas dinner for days.

It’s the smell and sound of cracker’s opening and flying everywhere. It’s the sound of the bad jokes and groans that go with it.

It’s the hope of a white Christmas, knowing full well that snow is very uncommon on the South Coast but hoping regardless.
