Christmas day is fast approaching and I think I’m ready for it. There’s a couple of deliveries I’m waiting for (a bit last minute, I know!) and the turkey to collect, but otherwise we’re ready. As my Mum says… “If we haven’t got it we’ll just have to do without!”.
Tomorrow, Christmas Eve, I’ll spend the day with my niece and nephew. We unwrap presents, play games and track Santa online. It won’t be long before they’ll be too old for tracking Santa, but hopefully they’ll still want to spend time with their favourite auntie!
I spend Christmas Day itself with my parents and grandparents. My grandparents are in their 90’s, so I treasure every Christmas I get to spend with them. We have a big turkey dinner with all the trimmings (my favourite meal of the year!), pull crackers and have a good time. In the evening, the Scrabble board comes out. We used to play Draughts (Checkers), but one year I beat Dad 8/1 and I don’t think we’ve played it since!
Sorry for the lack of posts recently. I’ve either been busy with work or tired with no energy. I do, however, promise to be more active in the new year. I already have a couple of posts which just need the finishing touches, and, of course, there’s my usual review of the year to put up before the end of 2019.
What are your Christmas traditions?
