The festive period is my absolute favourite time of year. Pretty lights, great food, upbeat songs – I love it all! But I’m well aware the build-up to Christmas can be difficult. When you’re in new surroundings, without your loved ones and usual traditions. Celebrating Christmas on campus with your friends is a great way to make the most of the season, but how can you start feeling festive? Here are a few of my favourite ways to get into the Christmas spirit at university.
As a small child I would excitedly run up to my parents with my latest invention and wait in anticipation as they studied it (most of the time probably trying to work out what on earth it was suppose to be). In my eyes, making things was a release of imagination and it was even better when I could give it to someone as a gift.
Christmas break is here finally and I’m…well, not here. I’m back home to lovely Romania, spending my first week between doctors’ appointments (mom’s order) and catching up with family and friends. But don’t go thinking that’s everything I’ll be doing…not even close.
