We started a tradition last year of putting together a December box. It was somewhere to keep together all the Christmas books, movies and music as well as other Christmas related things that we only really wanted around through the festive period.
This year our Christmas stash has grown and we now have quite a good supply of Christmas movies, many Christmas books and an ever expanding collection of Christmas music. The children love this time of year and getting the Christmas goodies out definitely marks the start of the Christmas period.
A December box wouldn’t be complete without advent calendars and the children have been slightly spoilt with them this year as we have homemade ones that we hang each year but when I saw the Thomas one in Poundland I knew Little Man would love it – and so I got his sister one too.
So we are now all set for December which will have a Christmas soundtrack, Christmas cuddly toys and many lazy afternoons watching Christmas movies. I absolutely love this time of year!
