Growing up my reasons for loving Christmas have changed. When I was younger like lots of kids I was excited for the presents, the surprises seeing what ‘Santa’ had got me (totally couldn’t hear my mum getting the presents from her room as I was too excited to sleep).
As I told into my teen I was always grateful for any presents I received, although by this point I was always more interested in the food. In my house we shop every week in Aldi but Christmas we most of the point spend a little extra and it makes it that little bit more special.
Turning into a young adult, I appreciate everything I receive from family and friends. Since getting a job and earning my own money, the high I get from seeing the faces my family and friends when they open their presents. Especially my mum as I love giving back to her. What I also love is spending time with family. This is something as I child I always took for granted when I was younger. Especially since my grandad passed, I’d do anything to have another Christmas with him.
What do you love the most about Christmas?
