Blogmas: Secret Santa and The Best Things About Christmas.

24 December 2013
A little while ago I received this in the mail.

It was sent to me by a member of the Beauty Heaven forums, a group of us signed up to play Secret Santa and it was extremely difficult resisting the urge to open an unknown gift, you see I usually know what is under the tree for me each year, so the wait is generally an easy one, but this gift had an air of mystery about it, not only did it hold untold goodies but it also brought with it the memories of Christmas as a child.

When we are little we are all caught up in the presents and lollies, the wonder of a jolly fat man and the delightful stories of Rudolph, Jesus' birth and Frosty the Snowman (even though we don't experience a white Christmas). These are the things that make us love Christmas, this love grows from precious memories created by other people who want to bring joy to our lives, primarily our parents, grandparents, close relatives and family friends.

As we get older we learn that Christmas isn't really about gifts, it's about making people feel loved and special, spending time with family and friends and stuffing our faces until we can't move, but I think when you can combine the wonder of Christmas as a child and the fulfilling experience of Christmas as an adult that's when you truly understand the blessing that is Christmas. 

Without further ado I bring you the gift that made me feel like a little kid at Christmas.

Thank you Secret Santa, you really must be Santa to have picked such a perfect gift for me. What a wonderful time of the year!

I'd like to wish all my readers a very Merry Christmas, I hope you all have a wonderful day and don't forget to tap in to your inner child xxx.
