    Kids going back to school is one for me. The fond memories I have of school when the Advent wreath came out I knew it was getting close. Then things like strictly come dancing starting back on tv.

    Smell of fresh paint reminds me of Christmas.

    My parents always did any renovations or decor changes to the house around October/November to have the house “ready for Christmas”

    The smell of paint always remind me of getting ready for Christmas.

    Mushy peas as Christmas Day is the only day of the year I eat them.

    Nobody else in my house likes them but when I go home for Christmas my Mam makes a big bowl of them just for me and my Dad as we’re are the only ones that like them :D

    Great British bake off, starts at the end of summer normally but we consider it a solid stepping stone on the build up to Christmas.

    Candles lit around the house. Don't know why just like it :)

    Oh yes to this one too... I usually replace the Christmas Tree lights with more candles in January to keep a warm glow in the house.

    For safety you can buy plenty of battery operated candles now that look pretty realistic.

    Was coming home from a site meeting today in the car and an advert came on the radio for house improvement loans from the credit Unions that I must admit had a real christmas/winter vibe about it.

    the bell sound in this song sounds a bit like a Christmas song imo

    Die Hard

    Yea, to Baileys - and for me, brandy, too.

    Sometimes add a wee tot of it to a mug of drinking chocolate for a sweet and certain sleepy nightcap.

    Outside of that it is not used much in this house, so I often buy a small bottle - (is that a naggin?) to put into the pudding and Christmas cake and mincemeat; and eventually to flame the pudding.

    Even dusting the bottle is a reminder of warm Christmassy times.

    Many round here will argue that 'Die Hard' is not non Christmassy!

    I was just about to post The Power of Love! Don't know why because it's not specifically a Christmas song.

    The song lyrics aren't Christmassy at all. Gabrielle Aplin did a cover version, and was used for the John Lewis 2012 ad, one of my faves:
