  1. Snow. I really like when everything is frosty, not too cold and quiet. Other than that I don’t really like Christmas, because my people go away to be with their families but I don’t really have one…

    There’s so much to like, how could I pick just one thing?! 🙂

    I’m subscribed to your youtube channel too btw (Fredrik Ehnbom/qquarnster).

    Also, if you have any coloured pencils you don’t care for that would IMO also make a great Christmas present, even if there’s just a couple of cm left of them. But maybe that’s just me? 🙂

    What do you want for Christmas Iris? Perhaps some of us followers could send you some small token gifts too!

    1. Donald Duck 😀 For some odd reason our tv stations always show Die Hard movies on Christmas 😀
      Where do you live? I can check some shipping costs, if it’s not too crazy, I can send you some pencils.
      I want sleep for Christmas. I have a 16-month old who’s never been good at sleeping but she’s been sick now and it’s been extra bad. Sleep and candy is all I need 😀

  5. I love that for at least one day in the year it feels like the world slows down and takes a breather. Allowing time for everyone to reflect, feel gratitude for whatever it is that makes them happy and relate with people around them. It feels like it allows people to treat themselves and for those who are less fortunate it’s the one time of the year people make more of a conscious effort to show compassion and help others. There is more advertisement of how to help the homeless and many other charities at this time of year than the rest.

  9. I forgot to mention one so important thing that gives me that true christmas feeling; singing out loud (I really can’t sing at all) with every christmassong I hear and pretend I’m Mariah herself “all I want for christmas is youuuuuuuuuuuuuu”.

    1. Very true in most cases.

      We are not a huge family on my side, there’s only the 4 of us and no children. So it’s much more noticeable when one of us isn’t getting along with the other!

      There’s been too many in the past where I have just up and left. Doesn’t make for a very special day then

  16. My favorite thing about Christmas is that it happens in the darkst period of the year, in the middle of our two months of Polar nights here in the north ( Northern Norway). Even though it is so little daylight dueto the sun never rising from the horizon, there is so much light in form of artificial lights on trees outside, and inside people light lots of candles and maybe the fireplace if they have one (also for warmth since it does get quite cold😀). Sitting inside while Christmas music is playing, having a Christmas workshop and drinking Christmas tea and eating gingerbread cookies…. It is a magical time, both outside and inside, and my favourite time of year!

    1. In Estonia, the winters are also dark but not THAT dark, we get daylight from like 10 am to 3 pm. When I was a kid, I got to go see the Santa in Finland, during the polar night. It’s something I will never forget. The Santa I have forgotten 😀 But the polar night was something truly claustrophobic and odd. We spent three days there, the longest night ever. Aurora borealis was awesome though but I think I don’t have it in me to live somewhere where it’s just dark nonstop for half a year.

  17. I love Christmas with all of its glitter and sparkle. We live a long way from our families so it’s just my hubby and me snuggling in front of a cosy fire. I love the rubbish tv, food and e xcuse to stay in my pyjamas all day if I want to! I hope you have a wonderful one!

  19. I love the smell of Christmas trees! Also, I really like wrapping presents! But, my most favorite is unpacking Christmas ornaments as I decorate the tree, and remembering the person who gave it to me or how things were the years when I purchased each one. I treasure my beautiful collection of ornaments!

  20. My favourite thing about Christmas is the overall “feel” of it, as well as the smells. I like the days leading up to Christmas, when I can sit curled up with a good book and some hot tea, watching the snow fall down. Also the build up of excitement as the gifts starts piling up under the tree. As for the smells….cookies baking in the oven, my pine candle weaving the illusion that we have an actual pine tree sitting in the living room (haha).

    Thank you so much for the opportunity and good luck to everyone who entered! :)<3

  21. Hello Iris! What a “nice” thing to do for your rapidly growing list of followers.

    Christmas: I enjoy all the entertaining and “get-togethers” with our friends and families.

    It’s fun to dig out the boxes of decorations we’ve saved for so many years. I love to see the sparkle in our home when everything is done.

    I have one tiny box I treasure. My mother’s collection of 6 tiny china angels. Every time I take one of those delicate angels into my hand and hang it on our tree the tears flow as I think about my darling Mom and what a precious woman she was – and how very much I miss her.
