There are so many things I love about Christmas. It’s such a magical time of
year. When I was younger it was all about the magic of Santa leaving me presents. My brother would always wake us up super early (this still happens, I’m not much of a fan). We always open presents in the living room, these days I am always half asleep when this happens. Christmas is all about family time and that is what I love most about the holidays.
Like I mentioned, the best thing about the holidays for me personally, is spending it with family. I don’t get the luxury of a lot of family time living in England. Therefore, I will always make time to go home and be festive with the family. I always enjoy the traditions we do around Christmas. Whether it be relaxing together watching festive films or going shopping.
But mostly the Christmas Eve traditions are the best of all. We all have Christmas Eve boxes to open in the evening. These boxes contain new pyjamas, socks, chocolate and a DVD of some sort. For the chilled out vibe of Christmas Eve, to be stress-free leading into the magical day. That night we always get a takeaway, as the following day is all about cooking the biggest meal of the year. Each year we change the takeaway we get, last year we had a Chinese so who knows what we will all decide on tonight.
I don’t know why but I usually always love Christmas Eve, the chilled vibe, the preparations and the takeaway food haha. It’s the lead up to a stressed day that is pretty cool in my opinion. We always watch TV together in the evening and it’s just awesome to be able to see family I have not seen for a while and to spend that festive period together. That’s what I love most about Christmas time.
