It's not often you can get your whole family in the same place at the same time. These moments should be cherished, documented, and Instagrammed.

What is it about Christmastime that instantly lifts your mood? It must be seeing all your friends and family, right? Or the fact you can eat a whole bowl of custard without being judged.

9. Actually posting those handmade cards in the mail.

These days, receiving something other than a bill in the mail is such a novelty – it's like a present in itself.

10. Being able to tell terrible jokes, without judgement.

Currently, Christmas is the only day of the year we're officially allowed to use bad puns and NO ONE can groan OR roll their eyes. Let's remedy that, shall we?

If we had these kinds of sales all year there'd be no need for everyone to rush to the shops on the one day.

Thankfully, it's not over yet! Keep the festive spirit alive and prepare for Christmas at Coles.
