It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

It really is!
Whenever it's Christmas season, I feel like my soul literally glows! Ask my boyfriend, Darren, and he'll tell you that my mood has been on the upside lately. You see, I'm one of those people who starts blasting Christmas tunes the moment November rolls around. I'd like to think that Michael Buble earns half of his holiday album royalties based off my stream count alone.
Ok, I'm kidding.
Or maybe I'm not.
I really don't know what it is about Christmas that gets me like this. Maybe it's all the lights. Or maybe it's just the whole idea of spending the holiday with people you cherish the most. Yeah, I'm sappy like that. Or maybe there is actual magic in the air, at Christmas.
Unfortunately this year, it's going to be my first time spending Christmas away from family. To be honest with you, I am heartbroken about it and it's taking me A LOT of willpower not to blow my savings on a last-minute flight ticket back home (which will undoubtedly cost a BOMB). But the good news is that I will be spending the 25th with my surrogate family instead (which will consist of a myriad of close friends, some I've known for a pretty long time and some new buddies, too~).
Come Christmas night, I will be hosting my very first (very grown-up!) dinner party! I shall be Nigella on the day, all cool and elegant and pristine. Only, I have a sinking feeling that I'll be more Bridget Jones than domestic goddess. I'll let you know how everything goes and should there be any disasters, well at least Christmas is also a season of forgiveness, right? Or did I just make that up?
Anyhow, I hope you'll be having a wonderful Christmas wherever you are.
Do let me know how you'll be spending the Holidays!
