‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse,
The bedding was hung by the chimney with care,
In the hope that Eve Mattress soon would be there.
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
With eve sleep’s new pillow tucked under their heads.
It’s been a long year but we’ve made it! December is finally here and with it the long awaited yuletide celebrations are about to start rolling in. The dangerous combination of mulled wine and mistletoe lurks ominously around every turn as your December schedule gets packed fuller than Santa’s sleigh.
Yes, the halls are decked and the mince pies stocked sky high, threatening to force that gym membership out of retirement come January. You can almost smell the fear of the last minute Christmas shoppers as it dawns on them that the big day is but a few short weeks away. Presents must be bought and wrapped and drinks must be topped up (keep that Sherry hidden behind the toaster though, you’re going to need that)
But in light of all this we still persevere – because there really is no other time like it. Getting together and enjoying each other’s company, celebrating the holiday season after a long year. The look of joy on the little ones faces as they can barely contain their excitement at the prospect of Father Christmas’ arrival.
With all this excitement and preparation there is hardly time for a much needed rest. So for the countdown to the big day, eve will be doing our very own nice list, running down a list of all of our favourite things about Christmas! Keep your eyes peeled for some neat little tips as we bring you some of the best events and some of the tastiest Christmas recipes every day until Christmas…
