The importance of Christmas and home this unique year

The importance of Christmas and home this unique year

As Christmas is fast approaching, we are all dreaming of spending some special time with the ones we love. With the government’s Christmas bubble plan now announced, many of us are working out the logistics of what Christmas this year will look like. But one thing we know for sure, is that our homes will be the centrepiece of our festivities.

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
Don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree

These words resonate more than ever this year. As Christmas is fast approaching, we are all dreaming of spending some special time with the ones we love. With the government’s Christmas bubble plan now announced, many of us are working out the logistics of what Christmas this year will look like. But one thing we know for sure, is that our homes will be the centrepiece of our festivities.

At The Apartment Company, every day we are welcomed into people’s homes. We see apartments of all shapes and sizes, those that are steeped in history and the ones that still have that scent of fresh paint. Yet regardless of the owners, and the reason they have or are purchasing their abode, what they all agree on is that this apartment feels like home. But what does home really mean?

A ‘home’ encompasses so many things, but above all it is a place that makes us feel secure – and how we have needed that feeling of safety this year. Homes are places filled with laughter; their walls may see many tears, but at the heart of it all is love. As you wander along the streets of Bath and look around, you may gaze at the houses and apartments that surround you, and that could be all that you see. But when you work in property you see more than the bricks and mortar, you see homes filled with stories and memories, places that are cherished and adored.

You can see how precious our homes have become. Like a member of our family, we take care of them and can’t imagine our lives without them. What has become absolutely apparent this year, as we see the abundance of lights sparkling in the night sky, and decorated trees adding colour and beauty to many a room, is that we are needing Christmas to start earlier. A traditional Christmas built around family, one centred on what is truly important and not material things, making memories that will last for generations to come.

What would we be without our memories, and our quirky family traditions? They form who we are. Our memories and homes are wrapped together, filled with our hopes and dreams, and where would we be without dreams? So cherish every memory this year, and make some new ones too.

Because this Christmas, more than Christmases past and future, will be unique in so many ways, but we know what your home’s wish is:
More than you could ever know
Make its wish come true
All it wants for Christmas is you
