Sorry for the silence over the last couple of weeks. It has been really busy. I have sat down after reading the night before Christmas and thought I would share our family Christmas traditions.
We love Christmas. A lot. We begin on the first of December when the elf comes and whilst we sleep changes our bedding. We wake up to festive bedding and our advent calendars. We put the Christmas tree up the first weekend of December. Always a real tree. The past few years we have got the tree from Ikea – it is £25 and you get a £20 voucher to spend in January. I love a bargain and the tree have lasted well each time.
Festive baking is next on the list. It is usual for the baking to be inedible. I am not sure how I manage to make such floury biscuits. The making together is fun and the house smells wonderful even if they could taste better.
In the evening of Christmas Eve Father Christmas brings a Christmas Eve box with new pjs for all of us. We also love to watch a Christmas film and have a party tea.
We read the night before Christmas at the end of Christmas Eve. We sit on 👧🏻s bed and the three of us take it in turns to read a page each at a time. As we sat on her bed tonight with the Christmas magic still as real as can be in our house I feel so luck to experience being her mum.
I would love to hear your traditions.
