CounterCultural. CounterCouture.’s Top Christmas Posts

Ahhhh, Christmas. That most stressful time of year! It’s bad enough when you’re just going about life normally. There’s the food to buy, presents to organise, cards to write… the list goes on! Don’t even start me about the political matter of who should receive a Christmas letter that my mum used to go through. Massive charts of who’s received one and who’s sent one. Really, it is just more stress than we should have to handle.

On top of this, when you’re a blogger, you are expected to produce numerous themed posts. Gift suggestions for your nearest and dearest. The perfect way to cook turkey… or the perfect veggie alternative. How to create a totally on trend decoration, which will be completely tacky in 365 days. Really, it just all gets a little too much. 

I thought Christmas was meant to be a holiday?? In other words, what happened to the fun??

Here at CounterCultural. CounterCouture. we have never been much for following the crowd. However, I do love Christmas so writing posts that at least vaguely link back to one of my favourite holidays (can you guess the other two?) has never been a problem. The only thing is, because I’m not much of a trendsetter or follower, these posts are a right mixed bag. From wearing blue and black to a Christmas dinner through to nut spreads and a childless woman, there are some definitely untraditional topics. But never fear. For those who love this time of year, there are posts of Christmas day outfits, Christmas markets, and even our traditional festive food.

Bath Christmas Market

Bath Christmas Market - Toffoc Vendor

 

I’ve had so much fun researching and writing these posts! I mean, who doesn’t want countless samples of toffoc for free? Or just they joy that comes from knowing other people can make your new favourite Christmas recipe? However, over the years, I have learnt that there are only two things that truly matter at Christmas.

The first one is a true classic: FAMILY! Even the main players of the Nativity are part of a family, nuclear, extended and blended. From Elizabeth and Mary’s shared joy through to family meals and penguin races, Christmas is about family. 

The second key to Christmas is in the name. It literally means the Mass of Christ. This is the time of year where people the world over and reminded of how God became a little baby in a manger. Whether you believe the Bible to be true or not, there is no escaping the birth of Jesus. 

So wherever you are this Christmas and however you celebrate, my prayer is that you will find room for family and Jesus.
