Advent is relevant – and not something to be dismissed. Why are Advent calendars a thing? Why do we celebrate the ‘lead-up’ to an event/occasion? Isn’t Christmas the only time of the year that this happens?View Post
Christmas comes around every year, and I often think it comes around before we know it each and every year. As if every year that I get older, a year seems to become shorter? Weird, I know, but still a very real feeling! Either way, as we approach what can be one of the busiest seasons of all, I’ve decided to create a space to allow me to explore some of the less thought of aspects of Christmas.
Autumn is by far one of the prettiest seasons; low sun, changing leaves, and the beginnings of crisp mornings all contribute to a lovely time of year. I’ve noticed it especially this year as I’m not in school – I have the chance to go out and explore during the day, and take Bonnie (my favourite cockerpoo) along with me!
I feel like this could be one of the rare historic events that people know the date and month more than the actual year. Could you tell me off the top of your head when the assassination attempt took place? I had no idea, and so went looking to find out a little bit more about ‘Bonfire Night’.
