Ho Ho Ho!


You know it's getting close to that time of year again when you start buying Christmas decorations! We bought this cute pair from York last week. Needless to say, they aren't in situ yet, but it won't be long! Four weeks until Advent Sunday. And that's when the decorations go up chez josiekitten!

In fact, on Mr JK's iPad, he has a countdown set up - and this is what it said this afternoon......

So, as a little precursor to Christmas, I thought I'd have a giveaway! To win a signed copy of Mini Christmas Knits by Sue Stratford, along with a bag of everyone's favourite festive vegetable - sprouts (although these are chocolate ones, haha!), tell me what your favourite thing about Christmas is.

There are some really cute patterns in there that you could use as gifts or decorations.

What's my favourite thing about Christmas, I hear you ask? Well, lots of things......... singing carols, all the traditions such as making the puddings, baking stollen and sausage rolls, chilling out with a glass of mulled wine and an old film on TV and going to Midnight Mass.

The giveaway is open to anyone, I'm happy to post the prize world-wide. I'll be drawing a winner next Sunday (November 8th) at 7pm, so there's plenty of time to enter! xxx

My favourite things about Christmas are dressing the tree, putting up the decorations, watching my family open their gifts, the food, the feeling and just the sheer happiness of it all.

Not sure if it's open to all over...but my favorite thing about Christmas is the feeling it invokes in me....I choose to ignore the commercialism of it....I choose to focus on the way people tend to behave...and the traditions of the season....I love the season and I also collect "old world" Santa, which I love....

12My favorite thing is being with my family on Christmas, and if we are lucky enough to have a cold, blustery day, well, that is a bonus. I like making or finding the perfect gifts for the special people in my life.

My favourite thing about Christmas is Boxing Day. Draw your own conclusions.

My favourite thing about Christmas is watching my daughter 'help' put up the tree decorations, and turning the light off to see the tree lights twinkle.

I like food and more food. And curling up under a blanket.
