Advent Calendar

Christmas hasn’t started until day one of the advent calendar. For as long as I can remember my mother, Diane, has always made me an advent calendar. It’s usually filled with sweet treats and I usually finish eating them by December 5th. Now that I have moved out, Thomas and I have filled ours with small novelty gifts – unfortunately we are avoiding sweets this year.

DVDs and CDs

Once Christmas has been declared in the house, Michael Buble’s deluxe Christmas album is not far behind. I also find myself guilty of playing Ariana Grande’s Santa Tell Me video on repeat. Dreaming about the Christmas slumber party I never had. Then, of course we watch DVD’s. Tommi’s go to film is Home Alone. My movie is Shirley Temple’s 1937 rendition of Heidi, I used to have the box set of her films and watch them all in one sitting as a child.

Everybody needs a chocolate santa…

Another tradition is chocolate santa. We love love love chocolate and Santa is a pretty dreamy guy too. So the two combined is perfection. The skinny santa in the photo is from Aldi and the chubby one is a gift all the way from Poland.

Baubles

This will be my first year with my own christmas tree. My favourite baubles are the sparkle bambi, the glass heart – so delicate and the PIZZA – I love love love pizza! The baubles pictured are from Paperchase, David Gavin on Burton Road, Tesco, Ikea and Wroclaw Christmas Market.

Buster’s Birthday

Buster is born on the same day as the Swedish holiday of Santa Lucia. So I usually make lussekatter which are saffron and cardemom buns for the humans, the house always smells delicious on this day. Buster gets treats, toys and a visit to the Santa Paws event at Betty and Butch.
