That’s right, I’m back with another confessions post! Its been a little while since I’ve done one of these, and all my pent up self-mockery is just dying to get out, and now we’re in December, its totally fine to start talking about my favourite time of year: Christmas!
1. I don’t like Elf
The so-called quintessential Christmas movie does nothing for me. In fact, I’d never even watched it until about 2 years ago, when my then-boyfriend was so upset by the fact I’d never seen it that he forced me to one day. Nah, I don’t see the hype..
2. I normally have all my Christmas presents bought and wrapped by the end of November
This year being the first exception in a long time, but as there are a lot of family birthdays in October/November time, I like to be prepared and spread the cost!
3. I don’t like mince pies
Yuck yuck yuck!
4. I also don’t like Christmas pudding
Or Christmas cake..
5. Also brussel sprouts
6. I still love tracking Santa
Ever since I was a kid, every Christmas Eve we’d go onto the NORAD Santa Tracker to keep an eye on where in the world he was stopping, and I’m not even ashamed to admit that I still do this at age 22.
7. I’m rubbish at sending Christmas cards
Last year was the first time in years that I’ve actually sent out Christmas cards, and to be honest I’m not even sure I’ll do it this year because effort. Soz guys
8. I think people who put glitter in their Christmas cards are the devil’s spawn
There’s always someone who thinks its cute to empty a tub of glitter into the envelope with their card. You open the envelope, chaos ensues and they’re struck off next year’s card list.
9. I take so much pride in my present wrapping skills
Every year I decided on a wrapping scheme, there’ll be ribbon involved and I make my own gift tags and everything. I’ll also normally end up wrapping my sister’s and mum’s presents for them too, but I don’t put in as much effort..
10. I buy a lot of my own Christmas presents
Its the easiest thing to do, especially when it comes to my grandparents. My gran actually prefers it that way, she just gives us a budget and waits for us to produce something that she can take away and wrap up. Its a win win the way I see it!
11. I don’t actually own a Christmas jumper
Shock horror, right? I have this little cute cropped jumper, but its not exactly a traditional Christmas jumper, but really they just don’t do it for me..
12. I basically just transform into a little elf
Making Christmas magical is my calling in life, I just love it ok?
