What do I love about the festive season? #travellinkup

December is my favourite month of the year for many reasons. First of all, I’m a December baby 🙂 Secondly, I really love Christmas time and New Year’s parties. Thirdly, I’m a genuine chocoholic so there’s no better time for me and my bad habit than the month of festivities and gift giving. Actually, I didn’t put gifts at all on this list because frankly they aren’t that important to me.

Chocolate Advent Calendar

chocolate Advent calendar

The excitement of opening one door at the time to find a small delicious chocolate each day. What could be better? In the past few years I decided to treat myself with a chocolate Advent calendar even though I’m an adult 🙂

St.Nicholas’ Day

When I was a child I got small presents for St. Nicholas’ Day (6th December). If you are good you get chocolate. If you are naughty, you get coal and a rod!

Christmas decorations & Christmas lights

At home, in the town…they just pretty up everything, don’t they?

Christmas markets

I really want to visit the Christmas markets in Germany. So far I’ve been to a couple of Christmas markets in Austria, Budapest, London and at the French Riviera.

the Christmas tree

I just love decorating the Christmas tree. And buying Christmas baubles  🙂

British Christmas Ads on TV

They’re sweet and corny and very Christmassy (is that a word even?) Yes, I lived for a while in England but my love for all things British was born a long time before that experience.

My birthday

My birthday is a week before Christmas. Yes, I’m a Sagittarius who loves to travel, what a cliché 🙂

Christmas jumpers

Another custom I borrowed from England 🙂

the Christmas food

Cakes and more cakes! I can’t say no to them!

Family time

No need for explanation here 🙂

New year’s travel

I used to travel for new year’s. A fun trip to Madrid. My first ever trip to London.

It’s going to be a very special month of festivities this year. Why? Well, I’ve become a mum so this year we’re celebrating my birthday and Christmas with our baby boy V. 🙂
