Welcome to Blogmas Day 11! Today, as there are only two weeks until Christmas, I thought I would talk about some of my Christmas traditions. I have a couple things that it would not be Christmas without, so let’s get into it.
Most of my traditions involve Christmas Eve and the first is family dinner. Every year since basically forever, my family get together and go out to our favorite Chinese restaurant for dinner. It’s always a great time and the best part is digging into the leftovers later that night after wrapping presents.
And speaking of wrapping presents, since I was a little kid I would help my father wrap the presents he had bought, and I helped him shop for, for my mother. And since my brothers and I stay at my parents house after dinner I’m still able to do that. While wrapping presents we watch It’s A Wonderful Life. It’s one of the best Christmas movies and it wouldn’t be Christmas without it.
On Christmas morning we wake up and have breakfast together and have A Christmas Story on in the background. At that point TBS is well into their 24 Hours of A Christmas Story, so it’s an easy choice for what to put on.
After breakfast my siblings and I partake in something that may be a little childish, but it’s a lot of fun. I can’t remember where exactly this came from, but someone hides a pickle ornament on the tree and the rest of us have to go and find it and the person who finds it first gets to open the first present. It gets everyone into the spirit and a little competition is always fun.
After putting on the Christmas music we open stockings and presents and just chill for the day. Eating the Chinese leftovers throughout the day and getting into the presents we got. It’s definitely a fun day.
That about wraps it up for this post, if any of you guys have similar traditions let me know and if not I’d love to know what your traditions are.
Until next time, I hope you guys are liking Blogmas and enjoy your traditions :).
