Some months are better than others. Next to November, I'd say that December is possibly my favourite month out of the year.

Maybe this goes back to when I was a youngster and counted the days to December. It's not because of the shopping, or the presents. I think it's more because December brings people together, everyone allows themselves to indulge, and people just seem overall - happier.

I already said this in my November post but I truly feel like in the months coming up to Christmas, and in winter time, people look happier. And seeing other people happy, makes me happy.

Personally I know that I'm always looking forward to this holiday season. I think what I love most about December is the fact that in mere two days I get to be with everyone I love. I go to three different places every year, and all are family. Some more family than others, but everyone family nonetheless (sometimes we chose our own family, right?!). Also, no one worries about the diet. Including me.

I love baking my infamous dark chocolate brownies, and smelling them throughout the whole house. I also love watching my granmother bake all Christmas related sweets and trying them out before anyone else even knows she's doing something. I think I just love all foods in general. Nothing beats sitting at home reading books that have already been read about a hundred times before but that will always have a special place in my heart, Then there's filling my stocking up (I do that myself yes, usually with sweets), drinking hot chocolates, and actually eating the chocolates.

Also, no one judges me on the very festive / christmas jumpers. I look forward to wearing them the other 11 months out of the year.

It's also the end of another year. I'm not much of a "Next year I'll do this, this and that." simply because I'm a true believer that if we want to change something, there's nothing like the present, but I am looking forward to next year. Maybe 2016 will be my year, because 2015 hasn't been the greatest.

What are you looking forward to the most on Christmas day?
Why do you love December?
