Can you believe Christmas is literally just around the corner? 2016 has whizzed by in the blink of an eye. Some of us have had a great year, and some of us not so much, but one thing we all have in common is that we hope that 2017 will be our best year yet.
I love seeing out the year and welcoming in the new year, do you? There’s something quite satisfying about the year ending and a new one beginning, it’s like somebody hands you a blank slate and all the sadness, mistakes, and unpleasantness of the year disappears and you get another chance at life. Fad diets, new relationships, better self care, more fun, less worrying, we have so many goals for the new year, and rightly so. I rarely make new years resolutions though do you? I can never keep them, so it’s easier not to make them, this is my reckoning anyway!
I love the build up to Christmas then the lead into new year. I love the party planning the outfit organising, the gift buying, the kids nativity plays, the Christmas jumpers, the tree decorating, the Christmas scented Yankee candles, the dark nights, the smell of gingerbread, the carols, and the sound of a big family get together.
What are your Christmas plans this year? We spend our Christmas with my husband’s family, it’s a big family occasion, and we all sleep over, laugh, stuff our faces with delicious food, and generally enjoy relaxing. New years eve is pretty much the same kind of thing, although it usually involves fewer people and a quiet night in, under fives are not very NYE friendly, although hosting our own party to bring in the new year during January has tempted us. A party in January would be an amazing way to begin 2017, to boost everybody’s spirits. Venue Finder is a great site to help find the perfect Christmas party venue and new year venues. Their site offers lots of locations and different options, you can exclusively hire a venue or join in a shared party night, they accommodate everybody. This would be such a fab start to the new year, and there is something to suit everyone whether you’re a family, a small business, a big business, a church, a football team, an office party, anybody.
I’m really looking forward to seeing in the new year well, and hope it’s sets a precedent for the rest of my year, and yours too!
Merry Christmas everyone!
