I thought I’d do a quick little post on some of the things I get up to on Christmas Eve each year. The last few years it’s been the same, so thought I’d share with you a little more about myself.
1 | I am usually a little bit hungover.. I know I shouldn’t be admitting that, but my work night out is always on the 23rd as we all get the 24th off, unlike the rest of the departments at work. It’s a lovely time to just sit and chill with work mates, as it’s the only time of year we can get a night out!
2 | Meeting up with my best friend, Louise. The last few years Louise and I go to a cute cafe, and hand our presents to each other. We usually don’t get that long together, but this year we have a full day together and even doing some baking as well! I honestly can’t wait to see her, and feel like I have been counting down the days for so long!
3 | Christmas movies. I always watch them the night before, either just by myself or with my parents. It gets me right excited, and I honestly lie in bed afterwards too excited to sleep!
4 | I get my ‘Christmas Eve Pyjamas’. Every single year since I was a little girl I have got a new pair of pjs the night before Christmas so I can have a nice cosy pair to go to bed in. I love this tradition my Mum and Dad have created for me, and definitely doing that with my own kids!
5 | I go and see my grandparents. I always drive around and see them at night, and spend quality time with them. I always do this, so if I don’t have enough time of Christmas day, I don’t feel too guilty that I haven’t seen them. Spending time with them at this time of year is a very big deal to me!
These are the five things I get up to on the 24th! Do you have traditions? If so, what are they? I’d love to hear about them in the comments below!
