Celebrating Halfway to Christmas!
It’s become a beloved tradition of mine to take the 25th of June off work so I can spend the day celebrating the fact that it is now halfway to Christmas. Yes, I really do love Christmas that much. The majority of people don’t understand and look at me very strangely when I tell them while other’s wish they could join me haha.
I always look forward to the 25th of June. For me, it’s the day where Christmas really begins. From this point onwards I’ll be planning, making gift lists, setting budgets, slowly adding Christmas songs into my playlist and getting some shopping done early.
So, how exactly did I spend today you ask? Just keep on reading for the most festive blog post in June!
Lush Christmas Bath
As I made the biggest lush order of my life last year when the Christmas products were released I still have quite a few festive bath bombs left. So, I started the day with a very relaxing bath using the Luxury Lush Pud bath bomb, which is my favourite festive bath bomb, and the Snow Fairy shower gel. It smelt so Christmassy and started my day off amazingly.
After the bath, I then got changed into a Christmas jumper. Thankfully I live in the UK and so far our summer has felt like winter so wearing a jumper is still perfectly acceptable. I chose a super cosy, thick jumper and paired it with leggings and fluffy socks for ultimate comfort!
Choosing which Christmas movies to watch was very difficult. I wanted to watch at least 3. I decided against watching my all time favourite Christmas movie, Santa Claus: The Movie, as I like to keep that one purely for December viewing so it’s extra special. In the end, I chose The Muppets Christmas Carol, Nativity and Elf. All feel good, heartwarming films!
Obviously, no Christmassy celebration would be complete without a delicious mug of hot chocolate!
Did you really think I was going to have a movie day with hot chocolate and no snacks?! Don’t be silly! I got a bag of my favourite chocolate treats, Milky Bar Buttons and ordered a pizza from a Domino’s too. Both were delicious and made me very happy.
Christmas Scented Candle
Throughout the day and movie time, I also had a Christmas scented Yankee Candle, Frosted Gingerbread, lit so the whole living room smelt festive and felt cosy.
I also posted some festive pictures on my autumn/Christmas Instagram account which you can follow here if you’d like for a countdown all year round!
Has my love for Christmas gone a bit too far? Or would you happily join me and celebrate? Let me know!
