Twelve Days of Christmas - Christmas Eve

It's here, it's here! It's finally here. Can you believe it's Christmas Eve?

Our Christmas Eve this year is a change in tradition for us, and I can't tell you how excited I am about it. What usually happens on the 24th, is that we wake up, get ready, put the hampers together  -all very rushed, in an attempt to get out as soon as possible. Sometime's the hampers could be done the night before, but it really depends on whats going in them. So then we would head out, start the visiting, always staying for longer than we say we will at each house, and then eventually get home really late and eat chinese food while watching Muppets Christmas Carol. Every year we say we'll be back early, and I think we've only manged it once...maybe twice, in the 10 years we've been doing it.

This year, we're bucking that tradition. We've taken Christmas Eve back for ourselves and I'm very pleased about it. The idea actually came form last year. I was sick throughout most of November and December, so come Christmas Eve Paul did the visiting and I stayed home. So to make myself useful I prepped for the next day...and I got so much done, just pottering around the house. Even though I was sick, I really enjoyed it. I had Christmas films on, Christmas music playing and felt so completely organised for the next day by the time Paul got home.

So that's the plan this year too, except we get to do it together. Because we've been quite busy, and to make life that little bit easier, we didn't do the hampers this year and instead bought small gifts for everyone. Meaning they could all be handed out in advance and we could have the 24th free. So Christmas movies are being watched, music is played, and we will still enjoy our Chinese takeaway while watching Muppets Christmas Carol, but at a much more reasonable hour.

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you have a wonderful happy day tomorrow, and a lovely relaxing end to 2017.

Only One Sleep Til Christmas!!!
