Hello Lovelies, I hope you’re all doing well, happy Sunday!! I’ve spend most of the day in work rushed off my feet all day so now I’ve finally got time to relax I thought I would share my own family Christmas traditions!
It’s always been a tradition of ours to put our Christmas decorations up on the 1st of December. Some of you may think this is ridiculous and way too early and for some it is! But for me it’s definitely not. Me and my mum always decorate the tree together which is always great fun. We both love Christmas and love getting the decorations up ASAP! (Even if I did ask if we could put them up in November, oops).
Another tradition is having an advent calendar. No matter how old I get I will always have one (I’m 19 in 20 days!) This year I decided to have a Kinder chocolate one. I usually have just your average Cadbury Dairy Milk one but I thought I would push the boat out this year and get a different one. I must say, it’s a lovely treat every morning.
So, now onto Christmas Day. It’s not really a tradition as such but it always seems to happen every year. From a young age my younger brother has always come into my room at around 4am to wake me up to ask me if we can open our stockings! Since he is 14 now he has chilled out a bit and waited until about 6/7am to wake me up which is so much better than 4am. We usually sit on my bed and open our stockings together before getting our parents up to come down stairs with us. No matter what age we are I think this will always be a tradition for us.
Christmas Day we usually have sort of a family party at my aunties or my nans which is always a lot of fun. I think we’ve only missed out on it once or twice but it’s always so nice to have the family together playing board games all night and having a laugh. After all Christmas is about family so its such a lovely night to have, I would hate to miss out on it.
What are you family Christmas traditions? Let me know down in the comments below!
See you tomorrow for Blogmas day 4!
Hello Lovelies, to commence the start of Blogmas I thought I would share with you my top 3 favourite festive movies that are guaranteed to get you in the christmassy mood. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now you’ll know I am totally obsessed with the movie Elf. So I think you all know which film is going to be at the top of my list.
- My favourite of all time Christmas film is Elf, it’s the perfect comedy Christmas film about. Recently I’ve seen a article stating Elf isn’t the top rated Christmas movie? How this is even possible I don’t even know. Elf is the best Christmas movie, am I right? Will Ferrell is probably one of the funniest actors around and I love how he portrays Buddy the Elf in this movie. One of my favourite scenes has to be when he first meets his dad Walter and sings to him. “I love you, I love you, I LOVE YOOUU!”
- I absolutely love the Home Alone movies, however I only like the 1st and 2nd because I think the 3rd and 4th just got ruined when they introduced the new little kid. (Sorry to those who love these films but I’m just not a fan!) Home Alone 1 is just an absolute classic and personally I couldn’t go a Christmas without watching it. I think the movie has a great plot behind it although I refuse to believe his parents would make the mistake of leaving him alone once let alone twice. Overall, I think we can all agree this is probably one of the best Christmas movies.
- Next we have The Grinch. I never used to like this film until last year because I thought the character ‘the grinch’ was actually quite scary… I know. After overcoming my fear I actually think the movie is really good and is very entertaining. Personally, I don’t think anyone could have done as good as a job as Jim Carrey did. The film is super creative and I do feel the movie sends out a sentimental message about Christmas. It’s not about the gifts and money it’s about being together, I think that sums up Christmas brilliantly.
