I have also started thinking more about christmas recently especially as I know school here reopens in a couple of weeks. When they go back halloween/christmas will be in the shops.
Once the cold weather begins I love the smell of wood fires burning ( I wish I had one)! I look forward to seeing all the decorations in the shops, finding new little treasures to add to my collection, gift hunting, mulled wine, festive treats at the bakery/coffee shops, walks in the crisp air and fallen leaves and the overall planning and preparing.
I look forward to celebrating Halloween and bonfire night. The day after halloween is like my official pre season start !
Finding MMC has added to my enjoyment of the festive season!
