My Least Favourite Thing About Christmas.

My Least Favourite Thing About Christmas.
"It's the most wonderful time of the year..." is it? Well it used to be.

You think I'd be used to it by now, another day, another week, another month, another year. Yet another celebration without you. Christmas is about family, spending time with your loved ones and even though I'll be spending the day with those I care about, something will always be missing and that's spending it without you.

I miss your Christmas morning phone calls, bright and early in the morning, you ringing us to find out what presents we had gotten, whether Santa had eaten the mince pie and Rudolph his carrot. You'd say you saw Santa last night as you'd stayed up late again to watch the wrestling and you were naughty and opened your presents as soon as he left.

I miss hearing your laugh from across the table, your contagious laugh that filled the room. I miss hearing your tell Christmas Cracker jokes, yet as bad as they were, you'd laugh your head. I miss you been the head of our Christmas table, the centre of attention, just as you liked it.

I miss you sitting in 'your chair' remote in hand whilst you picked what we all watched on TV. It would obviously be a comedy, something like the Royale Family or Mrs Brown's Boys.

I miss you joining in with us, on whatever it was we were doing. Karaoke, you'd join. Playing on the Wii Fit, dancing, singing, anything. Anything to see a smile on our faces, you'd join in.

My least favourite thing about Christmas? Well that's spending it without you, Jarmar x



  1. This brought a tear to my eye, Dena. My Granda died on Christmas Day so it's always bittersweet for me too xx


  2. Aw Dena this made me cry, it's so hard losing someone you love and them not being there, he would be so proud of you and of this post too xxx
