Holiday Traditions

Wednesday, 24 December 2014

Hello Beauties and Happy Christmas Eve! As the big day is fast approaching and everyone is putting the finishing touches to their present wrapping I thought it might be nice to share some of my holiday traditions with you. Christmas is my favourite time of year, I love how happy everyone is and it's impossible not to get into the festive spirit. I've narrowed it down to 4 of my main traditions or I will be rambling on forever! 

1. Every Christmas Eve when I was little me, my Dad and my Brother would all go in to town and pick up some last minute presents for my Mum. I used to love doing this and it was what I loved most about Christmas Eve. As a little girl and still to this day I loved Christmas Shopping and wrapping presents for people and doing some last minute bits on Christmas Eve always got me more excited for the big day!

2. After we had been shopping we always used to go to the local cemetery and pick up some flowers for my Mum. Not as grave-robber as it sounds, I promise! Our local cemetery always used to have a big flower stall on Christmas Eve to raise money for charity so we always went and picked up a few bunches for Mum. 

3. In my house we always open our presents first thing in the morning, in our pyjamas. I still don't think I could wait and get dressed properly before opening the presents, the excitement is just too much!

4. I've also made it into a little holiday tradition to by my cats Christmas presents over the past few years. Although they love to just play with the wrapping paper, I do like to treat them at Christmas time and this year I'm planning to get my cat Travis a dressing gown because he just loves them. He comes into my room every morning crying until I give him my dressing gown to sit on (strange animal) so I'm going to get him his own so he can stop bothering me at 6am! I'm also going to get my cat Bailey some gloves and hair bobbles as he loves to chase them around and chew on them - another strange animal!

This is it from me until after Christmas now (obviously I won't be posting tomorrow!), so I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope you all have a wonderful day with your loved ones,

Lots of Love,
