Weekword: Christmas!

I was in charge of choosing this week's Weekword, and I chose Christmas! I love Christmas - I love all the decorations and festivities and especially the food and drink! This year is a bit different in my family - we'll have a Finn with us, and they celebrate on Christmas Eve, so we'll have a Finnish Christmas on the 24th and an English Christmas on the 25th!

So here are a few photos of my favourite things about Christmas...

The decorations on my little tree:



Christmas snow-capped biscuits:



The lovely sparkly Christmas lights near my house:



And finally, our dearly departed dog Basil, who loved Christmas (especially opening presents!)



Have a look at the following blogs to see who else is playing!
