As I am sick today, when I logged on to see snow falling on my laptop screen I was gonna call for a doctor, but thankfully I realised that it was just WordPress being festive. Go WordPress!
I am one of those people who loves Christmas. I don’t mean in a ‘oh, you know Christmas is such a nice time of year,’ no, I mean in a ‘oh my God I love Christmas, I must drag everyone I know to every Christmas display in the whole of Dublin and make sure they all understand why it is amazing!’
The video I have posted actually made me tear when I saw it yesterday. This could also be because I’m a sap and cry at everything, but the fact that they are snowmen just made the whole thing more emotional. See, I really am a sap. And obsessed with Christmas.
My poor boyfriend did not know this about me when he first met me, or when he got with me. We met around this time last year, and I managed to hide it from him (trying desperately not to freak him out on our first ‘official’ meeting), but now that we have been together a good while and he’s pretty much stuck with me I can Christmas-it-up BIG TIME.
I have dragged him to so many windows and into shops which I know will have big Christmas arrangements and we have literally looked at every single piece of decoration in sight. Thankfully, he knows how ridiculously weird and giddy I can be, and so he has gotten used to me stopping at every fake-snowy window and perusing through all of the shopping centres just to see the lights. He also doesn’t even mind staying out late to see the lights lighting up!
And so, I am extremely happy that my (material) Christmas obsession will not be frowned upon by someone who has to spend so much time with me!
