So, I love Christmas, it’s no secret. I love to get caught up in all the festive cheer and get really frustrated with people who are Bah Humbugs and do not join in with me.
As soon as the shops start to display this year’s festive products I am on it and start planning what we are going to do this year, what I am going to buy, where we are going to eat... the list goes on and on..
I thought for today’s post, I would share with you the little things that I do around the festive season that are sort of traditions that we have developed. We do not have any children yet, but I hope these traditions will grow and become our little family traditions that my children will tell people about one day...
Christmas movie and duvet time – the last weeks before Christmas, we make a conscious effort to spend time at the weekend, usually on a Sunday evening, to watch a traditional Christmas movie cuddled up under a duvet with the tree lights on in the background whilst enjoying a hot chocolate or some mince pies. It’s so nice to be able to take some time out of our busy lives and spend Christmas time together
Opening our presents – We have made a rule that we open our presents from each other on Christmas eve, usually after we have been out for the evening. This is the kids in us I guess as well as allowing us to have our own time opening our presents and appreciating them before the madness of the family.
Christmas Beer – This is one of my favourite traditions! Every Christmas morning we head to the local pub for a Christmas drink. All the locals are there and its heaving. The place has a really Christmassy feel to it and I always try and have a Christmassy drink too!
I hope you enjoyed reading my Christmas traditions, I am really excited to keep this list growing and one day, my family can talk of their traditions too.
I’d love to hear about yours too!
