My Favourite Things About Winter

It’s officially Winter! Christmas is around the corner, it’s bloody freezing and depending where you are in the world, there’s a chance of heavy snow(rarely snows here in Ireland). I’m dreaming of a white Christmas, just like the… okay I’ll stop. Anyway, it’s now Winter and to mark the occasion I’ve decided to write a post on my favourite things about Winter. So without further ado…


Christmas has to be at the start of the list. While I don’t get as excited as I used to when I was small, I still really enjoy Christmas. I love spending time with my family, opening presents and eating Christmas dinner. And the Christmas movies are the best as always. Favourites are elf, the grinch and the polar express.

 Hot chocolate

Yes you can still drink hot chocolate in Autumn but I just love sitting in front of the fire, watching tv and drinking a warm cup of hot chocolate(with marshmallows).

I love going for a drive and looking at other people’s Christmas lights. Christmas lights just make a place seem magical.

Cosy blankets

I love snuggling up in a cosy blanket with my warm fuzzy socks just watching telly.

Cold air

This may sound a bit odd but I really like when you can see your breath in the cold air.

Christmas shopping

It can be a bit frustrating especially when you haven’t a clue what to get someone for Christmas but I really like picking out presents for people and then going home to wrap them.

I always drink bailey’s in the Winter as well as eating Toffifee sweets from Aldi which are yum btw.

Personally, I’m not a fan of the cold but I do love snow. It snowed really heavy here last year and my dad and I built a giant snowman out the back. I can’t watch The Snowman movie though coz it makes me cry.

Christmas market

Strolling through the Christmas markets really is quite magical. Will I buy something? Probably not. But will I continuously stare at snow globes and proceed to turn them upside down? You bet your ass I will.

Christmas songs

Ya All I want for Christmas is great but listening to Fairytale of New York is a necessity. Maybe some Micheal Buble songs too.Or Jingle Bells. Or pretty much any Christmas song ever made.

Geraldine’s Questions

What is one of your biggest blogging goals for this month?

For this month I am trying to get more blog views. I would really like to get 1000 views by the end of the year.

Where do you see your blog 3 years from now?

I would like it to be a pretty successful blog. The main reason for this is I want to reach as many people as possible specifically those with mental health issues. I want to let them know they are not alone and that there are other people in the world who know exactly how they are feeling.

If you weren’t blogging right now, what would you be doing?

I honestly don’t know. I have always loved writing and while I was initially sceptical to start a blog I knew I wanted to write and I’m so glad I decided to set up my very own blog.

If you could tame any animal in the world to be your pet, what would it be?

A baby tiger.

Would you rather never use social media sites / apps again or never watch another movie or TV show?

Oh that’s tough. Not gonna lie I can become addicted to social media but I also like my chick flicks so… never use social media sites.

Did you ever have a weird dream? If so, what was it about?

To be honest the moment I wake up in the morning I forget my dreams. So if I ever did have a weird dream, it’s long out of my mind.

If you could meet anyone in the world from any time period, who would it be?

Audrey Hepburn. She’s just a total icon.

What is one thing you’re absolutely terrified of?

Losing the people I love.

Would you rather be 15 feet tall or 1 foot tall?

Neither. Too tall and too short. I like to be average height.

If you could spend a day as the opposite gender (or basically whatever you aren’t currently), what would you do?

I’d probably end up having an Amanda bynes “she’s the man” moment. Wouldn’t complain if the guy looked like Channing Tatum though.

What is the best book you’ve ever read?

The perks of being a wallflower by Stephen Chobosky.
