|Don't worry, that's just some of them|
I've said this often enough, because it is true and anyone who knows me knows that I love Christmas. I love:
the lovely smells,
the yummy food,
the great atmosphere,
the rush to get all your Christmas shopping done in time,
the giving and receiving of presents,
the Christmas markets,
Christmas tv shows & movies,
the big roast on Christmas day and then leftovers on Boxing day,
reading The Night Before Christmas with my family on Christmas Eve,
choosing and decorating the Christmas tree,
and the list goes on.
But there is ONE thing, just the one, that I do not like: wrapping presents.
I love choosing wrapping paper and hearing it rustle, but I despise wrapping presents more than crowded shops and never-ending queues, simply because I can never get it nice and neat and perfect the way my mum, shop assistants and MY BOYFRIEND can. Even he can do it better than I can! (I blame his precision and perfectionism) It's just not fair. I keep trying to make it all nice and just can't. And then I get annoyed and feel like ripping it all up which is, quite frankly, ridiculous. I'm writing this after having just wrapped all my presents and still feel that horrible frustration. My boyfriend had to take over! How silly is that? He's a boy! He's supposed to be messy and he isn't. I am. And that is very, very annoying.
What do you love/hate about Christmas?
