What do you miss most about Christmas from previous years?Watch
That being said, we can still reminisce about previous years and the things we used to do. So what's a particular Christmassy hobby/tradition of yours, or what do you just miss from a particular wintery day?
For me going out to London and cycling/walking around while it was getting dark and seeing the lights was always really fun, especially when it was really dark so the Christmas lights were really bright and beautiful.
Also I really liked going to cafes because they always had amazing drinks.
This year I don't really think I'll be able to go out either to London or a cafe (or both as I really liked doing previous years ) and I think the thing I'll miss the most is a festive hot chocolate from Costa. Hot chocolates are my favourite drinks and Black Forest gateaux are my favourite cakes, so this bad boy is just a combination of the two. I remember having something similar a couple years ago and I adored it so I'm really going to miss this.
It’s nowhere near as fun sitting home watching it. We’re staying in Tier 3 for the foreseeable so there’s not even pubs to enjoy.
I’m feeling really in the spirit though so hopefully it will be good
i don’t celebrate Christmas so can’t say i miss anything other than that lol
A whole bunch of people thinking they're super trendy by going on and on about how commercialised and crap Christmas is. We might just get a year of people appreciating what normal Christmas is.
A tradition is merely doing something ridiculous at the same time every year - and that's what I think a lot of people's Christmases are. They do the whole silly run-up to it and spend loads of money and time preparing for what is essentially about a 30 hour period between midday Christmas Eve and about 5ish on Christmas Day. Presents, Christmas dinner, family. Then there's all the things like jumpers, trees, the same crap Christmas songs. The point is that Christmases are by and large the same every year unless you have a proper Eastenders one with a fight or a murder or car crash. You don't really remember them too much because they have the same sights, sounds, smells and tastes. That's maybe the point. Christmas is comforting because it's generally the same all the time.

A day out at a Christmas market
Christmas adverts, Brass bands in town, Lights up in houses, my UK family, real christmas trees (over here its all fake), Christmas crackers, etc. and plenty more.
In general though, I mainly just miss Christmas as a Child. People are 100% correct when they say that Children make Christmas. When your a Child its magical, and when you have a Child its magical, but there is an akward time in the middle where its nice, but looses something.
Now I hate Christmas and just wish it would get cancelled this year.
