Christmas Eve is my second favourite day of the year (after christmas day itself). I love the satisfaction of knowing that all the presents are wrapped and all the food is bought and I can finally relax at the most hectic time of the year, before the chaos that is Christmas day.
This year i’ll be spending Christmas in Scotland with my in-laws. We’ll be staying at their place and we’ve also pre-agreed that as a thank you for hosting us, i’ll be cooking Christmas dinner. My dad will also be visiting us and spending Christmas day with us. I much prefer spending Christmas in Scotland than Malta, for lots of reasons – the food, seeing all my friends and family, and being cosy inside with the heating while it’s cold outside.
So on Christmas Eve, my morning will start with running any last minute errands before Christmas. There is always something I’ve forgotten to buy, so i’ll be nipping to Tesco to pick that up. Around lunch time my dad will arrive and we’ll have a nice catch up and some lunch. Early evening we meet up with some friends and go out for a nice dinner together. Afterwards the boys and my dad usually go to the pub for a few beers, while the girls go home with the kids and put on a Christmas movie.
Once everyones back home, I have a long soak in the bath and I like to put on some new Christmas pyjamas I always treat myself a new pair every year. Once every one is settled, I pour myself a yummy hot chocolate(with mini marshmallows of course!) and settle down to watch whatever Christmas themed program is on the TV. Then it’s time for bed! I’m always sleeping before midnight, I’ll need to rest because I’ll be the one running after everyone on Christmas day.
What do you do on Christmas day?
