10 Best Things About December

Why is December such an amazing month?

With the festive season well and truly on its way, and autumn season drawing to an end, is it any wonder December is such a popular month for so many of us? As we head into the winter months, we've got so many exciting and fun things happening in the twelfth month of the year.

So, in no particular order, here are 12 reasons why December really is the most amazing month of the year...

1. It's Christmas! 

Well, we had to start with the most obvious one.  Without Christmas, well, December just wouldn't be December. For most of us, Christmas is the most fun, happy time of the year.  It's about spending time with the family, enjoying work nights out, and eating and drinking everything in sight.

2. Cosy Winter

December marks the start of winter season, and for many of us, that's not such a bad thing - in fact, that's a pretty good thing. There's nothing quite like snuggling up warm in front of an open fire, while indulging on some nibbles and swigging some sweet sherry. Everything feels that much more cosy in December.

3. Snow fun

Ok, so it doesn't necessarily snow in December for a lot of us, but for those of us who are blessed with snow over the festive season, it can make the whole month feel that much more exciting and fun. Snow ball fights, snowmen, days off work/school - ahhh, doesn't it feel so Christmassy!

4. Family time

December is the perfect month to spend plenty of time with the most important people in your life. After all. without family and loved ones, Christmas wouldn't be the same.


5. Christmas movies

Are we talking about Christmas again? Well, it's kinda hard not too.  And what could be better than cosying up in front of the telly with a cheesy Christmas movie!  Yes, you've probably seen the movie a million times, but there's just something special about watching it over and over in the lead up to the festive season.

6. Shopping! 

Ok, so shopping isn't particularly much fun for many of us, but December takes the task to a whole new fun and exciting level.  Shopping in the lead up to Christmas is fun and vibrant, with the Christmas markets, and a jolly good festive atmosphere. It's just great being out and about, sharing the time with so many happy faces.

7. The pub

We all love a drink and a mingle in the local pub, but this experience gets even better during the festive season. The pubs are fuller, the atmosphere is happier, and everyone just wants to have a good old time!

8. New Year

After polishing off the last drop of sherry, and munching on the last of the mince pies, most of us are feeling fat, bloated, and ready for a detox.  But more than that, many of us are ready for a fresh start.  The end of the year is in sight, and we can now look forward to a new and prosperous beginning.

9. SALE!

Ok, so it used to be January when you could get all your bargains, but in recent times December has become the month for major sales and discounts. That can only be a good thing, because Christmas just got a whole lot cheaper, which means more money for beer!

10. Tasty food (and lots of it)

If there was ever a time to carelessly stuff your face with delicious food, it would have to be December. So, don't think about it, just enjoy it, and indulge like crazy!
