Guys, Christmas is this close. Well, the month of Christmas is that close.
Nothing excites me more than Christmas. Even my birthday falls short. An entire month of carols, decorations, presents, wrapping paper, Christmas movies, sleigh bells, stockings -- the list goes on! I'm potentially more jolly than the jolly, fat man. Big call, I know.
This year, Christmas will be super amazing. Twenty billion times more amazing than normal! How come I hear you asking? Well this Christmas I will be in Helsinki, Finland.
That's right, Helsinki, Finland. And oh boy will it be cold. And oh boy am I far too excited about this!
Living in Australia, it's somewhat of an understatement to say that Christmas is hot. Scorchingly hot. By 7am on Christmas morning, it's usually in the 30's (for those that work on Fahrenheit, 86-ish). This means you sweat your way through Christmas presents and then it's straight in the pool before breakfast.
Sometimes, I really like that. It's sunny and warm and everyone comes over to swim in the pool and drink beer and play cricket. But, because it's fun to be crazy, I prefer cold climates. Yes, the Australian prefers cold climates.
And that is why Christmas this year will never be able to be topped. Fingers crossed we have snow in Finland! And, because Christmas is all about the gift of giving, on Christmas day I will be giving you an image of a really, really happy me frolicking in the snow in my stripey thermals.
Until then, join me in frothing over my Christmas Pinterest board!
