I’ve always found it great how everyone does Christmas differently.
We wouldn’t change our current Christmas traditions for anything as they make our Christmas just that little bit more special. We are however open to new traditions and each year we seem to pick up a few more along the way.
Every year for as long as I can remember, I have had an advent calendar. Every morning, I eagerly open the door to find a little chocolatey treat.
Christmas Eve Pantomime
Every year, my family goes to a Christmas themed pantomime. It’s so much fun and it’s great for distracting from the boring night before Christmas. Is it just me who used to hate Christmas eve? I just found all the waiting so boring and suspenseful. But, now that we go to a pantomime, I don’t feel so bored at Christmas eve.
Building gingerbread houses
One of my favourite things about the Christmas season is getting to build lots of gingerbread houses. I find them so fun to decorate and I love doing it every year. Whether I build one with my sisters or my boyfriend, I always have fun.
Stockings and presents
In my home, we wake up on Christmas morning (about 5am) and we open our stockings. They are usually full of things like stationery, jewellery and chocolate coins. Stockings are probably my favourite part of Christmas as we all go and sit on my parent’s bed and open then together.
