Center Parcs Family Blogger December Challenge Entry

As part of the December Center Parcs family blogger challenge we were asked to write about 12 things we lovede about Christmas.

I thought I would put down in a poem all that sums up what I love about Christmas –


At number 12 is mulled wine so sweet

It one of my favourite Christmas treats

At number 11 is Christmas dinner

I tell you our turkey is always a winner!

At number 10 are the presents galore

One for each person…and then – some more.

At number 9 is the Christmas tree

That glistens with baubles and lights and fairies.

At number 8 is Santa so jolly

We love his presents of bikes and dollies

At number 7 are the memories

That stay with us and never cease.

At number 6 is the snow that falls

The snowman, the ice and the fights with snowballs

At number 5 is the Christmas spirit hat abounds

The kind that at other times is not found.

At number 4 are the Christmas songs

Sung with joy, with voices strong.

At number 3 is the crib so dear

That always reminds us Jesus is near.

At number 2 are the Christmas plays

Seeing my children performing makes my day!

At number 1 is the family love sublime

That stays with us till the end of time.


The tip that inspired me the most is –  “3. For those who don’t fancy venturing out, there’s still plenty to do inside at Center Parcs. The traditional pantomimes are always a favourite with our guests and the Elf Academy at Sherwood Forest turns your little ones into trainee elves, complete with an elf graduation.”  – It sounds positively delightful.


This is my entry to the Center Parcs and Tots 100 December challenge. If I’m chosen, I would like to visit Longleat.
