You have to go shopping and the supermarket is always packed with people, and the queues seem to be snaking all the way around the shop.
Everything seems ridiculously overpriced. £50 for a turkey, seriously!?
Spending time with family suddenly gets stressful and everyone's temper seem to flare quicker, or is that just my family?
Your bank account goes
You end up wrapping yourself in paper instead of the presents, and always lose the end of the sticky tape.
What is it for?
I often ask myself this question throughout December and then today comes around, Christmas Eve and I know exactly what we do it for.
We do it for the magic.
The frayed tempers.
The charades after lunch.
The smile you get in the morning no matter what age you are, because you know Santa's been.
We do it to be thankful.
To give us hope and joy.
When you are wanting to scream at certain members of your family just remember.....
Merry Christmas Everyone!
