* Warning: This post contains an unhealthy amount of the word Christmas. Beware *

Christmas is just around the corner, yet I haven't felt very festive lately. So I decided my non-festive attitude needed a kick in the butt and called for desperate measures. Since then, I have tried to be as festive as one can be. Listening to christmas songs, eating mince pies (by the wonderful Peggy Porschen!) and clementines most (every) days, trying to enjoy this EXTREMELY cold weather, going to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, snapping pictures of every christmas tree I lay my eyes on (ie. a LOT of them), catching up on some christmas shopping, drinking hot chocolate every second (not that it differs from usual)... You get the picture. I AM SO EXCITED. Mostly because my parents and sister are flying over next week, and we will be joining the rest of the family at my grandparents' house in the country. Tell me all the festive things you do! I want to know!
