Although of course Christmas day is the big day, I love Christmas eve and Boxing day too. Any excuse to stretch out the festivities a bit longer.
We usually spend time with my nephews Noah and Casey and my twin sister on Christmas eve and of course this year my niece Evie is a bit older and can enjoy the fun too.
It’s quite a nice chilled out day but full of fun and food.
I will get some yummy food in for breakfast for me and Tim to enjoy before he has to work.
Then me and my sister’s are going to get together and do something fun with all the kiddies.
When it gets darker we head over to my mum’s and pick her up so that we can carry out our tradition of looking at the Christmas lights around our local area. I love this tradition, it’s one of my favourite festive pastimes and it really gets you into the spirit.
After we’ve looked at the lights we head to Sarah’s for some yummy treats and relaxing in our new Christmas PJs. We don’t do full on Christmas eve boxes for the boys yet as they are still a bit little, but we do all get some new, cosy festive pjs, hot chocolate and a couple of festive activities for the boys to make or colour before bed.
We also have a Christmas film on in the background too, probably ‘The Grinch’ as we all like that.
Once the boys are in bed the adults enjoy our festive feast.
We always just get a few things that we can all share and enjoy together.
This year we are going to get a Camembert, with bread to dip, Nachoes and some pigs in blankets. It’s going to be delicious. I can’t wait!!
What do you like to do on Christmas eve?
Until next time,
