The Photo Gallery: It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

The Photo Gallery: Week 126
It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Well, it certainly is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Although not in our house. We have a few Christmas cards up and the advent candle and that is it for now! We will get our tree and put the decorations up this weekend I think. The children are so ridiculously excited this year. The boy has gone past every shop window pointing out what he would like. The girl has been clutching the decorations on the childminder's tree, desperate to bring them home!

Advent candle

These photos are my take on this week's theme. The advent candle burning its way down to Christmas Eve. Somehow the idea of a candle counting down the days to Christmas is so much more magical than an advent calendar (which we forgot to buy this year).

I am looking forward to putting the decorations up, but they stay up until January so I can't do it too early or else I will get bored of them! Also, our cats never fail to climb to the top of the tree the first day that we put it up so I am holding off for a little bit!

  2. I thought about one of those advent candles, but thought I'd forget about it or burn too much one day.

    1. Last year my husband forgot to blow it out and the whole thing had gone the next day. No idea how our house didn't catch fire!

  3. Our decorations are up early this year because my niece was visiting and I wanted her to see the tree. Not that she was fussed lol she's only 18 months though. I love the advent candle.

  4. I always used to have an advent candle but the kids have gradually made me move over to the calendar and our decorations are up early this year as we are going to be away over Christmas

    1. We usually have both the candle and the calendar but just didn't buy the calendar in time!

  5. Always wondered if those candles actually work! Bit worried about leaving it alight with my cat!

    1. You blow it out as soon as it reaches the next date and then light it again the next day.

  6. That is gorgeous and you are right, much nicer than an advent calendar.
