Happy Christmas Eve everyone!
We’ll make today’s blog short and sweet as I’m sure like us you’ll all be busy with last minute preparations and spending time with your loved ones. We thought we would share with you our usual Christmas Eve routine and we would love to hear what your routine and traditions are too so feel free to leave us a comment.
From a young age I always remember Christmas Eve being a very busy time in our house and it’s no different now I have my own family. Like my Mum I always cook my turkey on Christmas as Eve and prepare all the vegetables and trimmings to ensure that I’m not stuck in the kitchen all day on Christmas Day – I would much rather be spending time playing with the kids and spending time together as it’s one of the few days of the year we can guarantee we are all at home with no other plans! So inevitably the first part of my day is spent in the kitchen with the Christmas Playlist blaring and some (terrible) dancing and singing going on!
Whilst the turkey is finishing off in the oven I set to work making sure the house is clean and tidy- even though we spend the day at home just the five of us I like to make sure the house is sparkling. By 9am on Christmas morning though I am always wondering why I bothered as toys, gifts and wrapping paper are usually strewn everywhere and I could do with whipping the hoover out!
Usually we end up staying up later than we should knowing that we will be up at the crack of dawn if not before, plus even as an adult I still find it difficult to sleep because of the excited anticipation.
So that’s our Christmas Eve in a nutshell! We would love to hear what you get up to or your plans are for today feel free to leave us a comment and let us know.
