It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

With Christmas now being well and truly round the corner, I wanted to do a round up on some of my favourite festive things to do this season. One of the best things about Christmas is of course the food! From baking sweet treats to take round to visit family, or contributing the Christmas turkey to the table feast. Second to going on the Christmas Markets to enjoy some mulled wine and the likes of German sausages and mini dutch pancakes covered in Nutella. Although Christmas can be a bit hectic, I love all the plans that come with it. From office parties, secret Santa’s, festive blog events, and catching up with loved ones. Here’s my list of top 40 festive things to do this Christmas.
