Guest Post: Ross from the Royal Bookshelf’s Favourite Christmas Traditions

Hello everybody! Today, I’m very excited to be sharing a guest post from Ross, who is one of my oldest (as in in terms of how long I’ve known him!) blogging friends, so I’ll pass you over to him now to tell you about his Christmas traditions!

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be a guest on Amy’s amazing blog today (as well as very honoured!) 

My name is Ross and I blog over at The Royal Bookshelf. I’m currently studying English with Creative Writing in university and I’m in the middle of my third year. I love all things books, Doctor Who, Lorde and Donna Summer.  Today as part of my guest post, Amy came up with the brilliant suggestion of my favourite Christmas traditions. I am a HUGE Christmas fan, so of course I couldn’t say no to my lovely friend. So without further ado, onto the post!


I’m an old soul at heart, and there’s nothing better in the winter months than curling up in bed with a Christmas pattern, Downton Abbey on full blast in the background. Usually work can be quite hectic because we take orders for ham and turkeys for Christmas Day so this is always my favourite way to unwind.

Doctor Who

As I already mentioned, I am a huge Doctor Who fan. It’s been a part of my life since I was 5 years old and I love it dearly. One of my favourite Christmas Day traditions is sitting down to watch the Christmas special in the evening after a delicious dinner and full day of family festivities.

Love, Actually

I am so completely obsessed with this film!! It’s so romantic, feel-good and just funny. There’s nothing better than watching this in the month of December – it really puts me in the festive mood. This year I’m going to attempt to watch one Christmas movie every day in December – but we’ll see how that turns out, lmao!

Great Expectations

My favourite book of all time is the Charles Dickens classic. I have lost count of how many editions I own and how many times I’ve read this book, but it’s just superb. Whenever the festive season comes around, I always try to make it my mission to read it with a cup of hot chocolate not too far away! If you haven’t read this, I would thoroughly recommend!

So there you have it – some of my favourite Christmas traditions that instantly jump to mind. I hope you all have a lovely festive season that’s full of books and joy (but aren’t they the same thing anyway?) Amy, thanks so much for having me! x

Thank you so much for reading! Make sure you go and check Ross’s blogs out, and I’d love to hear about some of your Christmas traditions in the comments!
