Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, and lets face it its even better when you are a child! The magic is just incredible and there is always so many things going on, my little mind used to explode with excitement. So I have been reminiscing what little things I miss as a child at Christmas time.
The star of the nativity.
Luckily I always got an important part in the school nativity unfortunately there isn’t enough good parts for everyone- I have been, An Angel many times, Mary, and at the end of primary school I even got to be a cheerleader! How bloody amazing, I didn’t have to wear a tea towel on my head. My Annabelle was a pig for her first nativity this year… I didn’t even realise there was a pig. If she doesn’t get Mary next year then I’m selling my tickets!! (I joke, I joke).
Something I found really exciting even though it came out of my own pocket money, a trip to poundland for one of their knock off Lacoste perfumes was my personal favourite gift to buy. And I loved giving my present, people always believed I spent that extra. (SPOILER!) I didn’t.
The Christmas Card mission
The awful pain of remembering every bloody name in your year, then spending hours writing them all out of my bargain box from Woolworth’s and handing them out the next day. And if you forget anyone, then you can bet you have lost yourself a friend and made an enemy for the year!
School Christmas Dinners
The tiniest portions, meat usually over cooked, the whole school crammed on about 4 tables, I wouldn’t have changed it. Some cheeky Christmas songs and enjoying your last day or week with friends before the holidays, life never felt better- literally.
The disappointment when the snow doesn’t come
That fucking weatherman has had your hopes up all month that its going to snow on Christmas Day, so you have prepared yourself and planned an evening of snowball fights with your friends.. Low and behold the twat lied and it hasn’t snowed, the day is ruined plans are cancelled and you’re stuck in watching utter shit on the TV whilst your parents merrily drink the day away.It snowed here… about two months late
Arts and Crafts
What’s better than spending the whole day cutting, sticking, gluing and using excessive amounts of glitter (when the glitter came out you knew it was a good day) making a beautiful Christmas tree decoration (from something that’s really somebody else’s recycling) to come home and watch your mum bin it! Guessing she did the recycling that day.
The Last day before the holidays
Non uniform, Santa Dot to Dots, chocolates, christmas films and games, seeing teachers out of their usual attire. The last day was always the best.
Oh how I took it all for granted.
