Christmas | The Good & The Bad

Tomorrow is Christmas! 
I find this month just flew by! 
After tomorrow its all over for another year.

I wanted to share some of the good and bad things about Christmas:

Decorating:

The Good
It doesn't quite feel like Christmas until the decorations come out! Your home is instantly transformed into this wonderful Christmas land. Putting the tree up is one of the funnest parts of decorating. It makes everything feel nice and cozy.

The Bad
Trying to find your decorations. All stuffed in boxes hidden away in closets. Something is always broken. Not to mention when its time to take down your decorations NOTHING ever fits back in the box! And once all of your decorations are put away it looks like someone just robbed your house. Everything looks so bare.

Gift Buying:

The Good
Buying gifts for people you love just makes you feel good! Searching the stores for goodies you think they'll enjoy. Once you find that perfect gift you can't wait until they open it!

The Bad
Having those people on your Christmas list that are just impossible to buy for! Usually resulting in buying their presents last minute, which is just stressful. Also having that worry that they won't like the presents you bought them.

Hosting Christmas dinner:

The Good
Having all of your loved ones at your place. Planning the perfect meal and just being able to enjoy great company over the holidays.

The Bad
Stress. Worrying if you bought everything you need, if your food tastes good, who likes this who doesn't like that. Finding space for 10 at your 6 person table. Trying to keep everybody else happy that you forget to have a good time yourself.

Waking up early Christmas morning:

The Good
The excitement of Christmas! The joy of opening your presents and listening to Christmas music in the early morning.

The Bad
Waking up early.

Not having Christmas at home:

The Good
Spending time with relatives during Christmas. Not having to worry about making Christmas dinner. Not having a huge mess to clean up after presents are all opened. Having a little mini vacation if your relatives live away.

The Bad
Lugging presents to and from the other persons home. The drive to get there. Just the overall feeling of not being in your own home on Christmas.



So thats my Christmas Good and Bad list! I just did this for fun, I really love Christmas!  

We're leaving for Cape Breton tomorrow morning and won't be back until the 28th so this will be my last post until then.

I hope everyone has an amazing Christmas!!
