Good morning everyone! ♡
Merry Christmas Eve! 🎄🎁💗
Blogmas day 8 is upon us, the last day of Blogmas week is here! If you have enjoyed this week make sure to leave a like on this post! Today’s post is going to be all about my traditions and just Christmassy things in general! This post is also very exciting as it is a collab with my best internet friend Ella her blog is here: https://ellaroseeex.wordpress.com/ and her post: https://ellaroseeex.wordpress.com/2017/12/24/my-christmas-eve-traditions-%E2%99%A1/ She has recently properly got into blogging and I am so proud of her. She deserves your follow I promise and all your love will spur her on to keep going! Enjoy!
So I guess I don’t really have any specific traditions that go with Christmas Eve. Sometimes we go for a walk or go and visit family. But most of all we love to properly get into the Christmas spirit, by eating lots of good food and listening to some fab Christmas music! It is all about getting into th spirit and spreading the joy, but also thinking about people who are alone, on the streets or starving on Christmas because it isn’t fair and by spreading the love you should always give them a thought.
Even though, I am going to be 15 next Sunday, me and my brother still love to put our personalised santa sacks every year as I guess a tiny little bit of magic appears! But I do love the element of surprise that comes with a stocking, it is so fun not knowing what you have got! I don’t have any little children in my family to really lack up the magic but when I see little kids on my Facebook or Instagram enjoying Christmas it makes me feel all warm and cosy as it is so important that when you are little you get all the magic out!
So Christmas Eve for me is a full mix of emotions, lots of love and some fun activities to go along with it. Also don’t forget to share with friends as well as family and people who are less fortunate than ourselves.
Moving on now, one of my good blogging friends Amelia from:http://rosetintedpics.co.uk/ tagged me in her Xmas would you rather post:http://rosetintedpics.co.uk/2017/12/20/xmas-would-you-rather/that was originally created by Alice her post is here: http://www.theroseglow.co.uk/2017/12/xmas-would-you-rather-2-of-12-days-of.html So I thought I would include it in this post as this is my last chance to do it I hope you enjoy!
Eat Brussel sprouts or cauliflower cheese?
Ewww, I don’t really like either and don’t have them on my Xmas dinner but if I had to choose cauliflower cheese all the way, I can’t even go near sprouts so that is pretty obvious!
Have twinkling lights or still lights?
I love twinkling lights, they are the prettiest but all fairy lights are great so to be honest I am not really bothered!
Eat gingerbread or Ferraro Roche?
I actually have never tried Ferraro Roche but they don’t look like my kind of thing at all and I have always loved gingerbread so it would have to be gingerbread!
Open your Xmas presents with only immediate family or with all of your family members?
I hate all the attention on me so it is better for me with just close family and if I do open them with lots everyone else is opening so nit everyone is focused on me!
Cook Xmas dinner for the whole family or don’t eat Xmas dinner at all?
Omg, one day I would love to cook Christmas dinner for the whole family but it seems like quite a big challenge so practise will be needed first but I could never have Christmas without one!
Have a real Xmas tree or a fake xmas tree?
I love real ones so much but they are super messy and in our house we have a fake one, but when I move out I would love at least one real one somewhere in my house they just smell so good!
Use blue, yellow, white or multicoloured lights?
I am not bothered at all! I love all lights but we have yellow warm ones on our tree and I have cool toned bluey ones on my mini tree!
Eat mince pies or Xmas cake?
Such an unpopular opinion but neither, I don’t like either they are not appealing to me at all!
Wake up at 6am or 10am?
I am still like a little kid on Christmas morning, I can never go to sleep and then wake up at 5:30 or something crazy like that and I feel like 10am makes it a waste of the day so 6am!
Drink champagne or hot chocolate?
Hot chocolates are my fave especially with some melting marshmallows, but when I turn 18 I would love to try Champagne!
Eat Heroes or Roses?
I love both, but probably Roses they are the ones especially associated with Christmas, you can get all the hero chocolates all year round!
Get a puppy for Xmas or a kitten for Xmas?
Puppy definitely I know that I would love my mum’s friends dog breed but I can never remember what breed she is I think she is a shih tzu crossed with bichon she is so calm and gorgeous!
Watch Elf or Home Alone?
Home alone, those movies are fab! Not the biggest fan if Elf sorry!
Only be able to listen to Xmas songs all year round or never hear an xmas song again?
I would listen to them all year round anyway if it was socially acceptable aha!
Wake up bright and early and get all of the best boxing day sale goodies or stay warm and cosy in bed wearing your new Xmas pjs?
Warm and cosy in bed, I do do some shopping but not super early, I’ve just had a super tiring Christmas day aha!
That is it for today’s post, Have a very merry Christmas and stay safe and even if you don’t celebrate Christmas have a lovely day!
Lots of love,
