I’m so excited!! I know there’s still more than a month to go, but I absolutely love this time of year as we start the build up to the Big Day!! Everyone has their own traditions about when Christmas really properly begins and for me for the last six years for me it has been the day when the Christmas (December) issue of the Bustle & Sew Magazine is published, full of seasonal goodies. We then count down the days on our Advent Calendar until our decorations go up.
Traditionally in our family we deck our halls on the nearest weekend to my birthday, so we wait until the middle of the month before bringing our decorations down from the attic. Of course this is my little grandson Freddie’s first Christmas – he arrived on Boxing Day 2015, so we’re all excited to make it a super-memorable one! There are lots of Christmas ideas between the covers this month, and I do recommend Rosie’s Recipes, where she shares some of our old family chocolate ideas. If you’re stuck for gift ideas, then homemade truffles are sure to be a winner!
