“On the Eleventh day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
Eleven Pipers Piping
Ten Lords a Leaping
Nine Ladies Dancing
Eight Maids a Milking
Seven Swans a Swimming
Six Geese a Laying
Five Golden Rings
Four Calling Birds
Three French Hens
Two Turtle Doves
And a partridge in a pear tree”
Today I will be talking about my Christmas family tradition. Me, my parents, my brothers and my boyfriend always celebrate Christmas the day before Christmas Eve because I need to visit my boyfriend’s family on Christmas Eve. We open all of the Christmas presents on this day while the fireplace is burning and the christmas songs are playing. Just me, my parents, brothers and my loving boyfriend. So this is how every 23th of December goes, normally.
First of all, mom makes some delicious food. My mother is a cook so she loves cooking, but on this day we eat delicious food that isn’t to hard to prepare and that doens’t take to much time. Because it’s a family evening it would be sad if my mother isn’t sitting with us. Most of the time we eat delicious snacks from Delhaize to start. We always buy those delicious oven snacks that you can’t keep your hands off. Most of the time we buy a stuffed turkey in the supermarket and my mom makes a jaw dropping sauce and some crispy croquettes to go with it. To end everything on a christmassy note we normally eat some Christmas themed ice cream cake.
After this it is time for presents. Everybody opens their presents one by one. It is always so much fun! The christmas music sets the Christmas mood and it is the favorite time of the year for me. I love giving presents to others and seeing them smile when they see what it is! I enjoy it even more than getting a present myself.
After the presents are opened it is time for a Christmas Movie! We ALWAYS watch A Christmas Carol. Every Christmas we watch this movie and it never gets old. It is my favorite Christmas movie of all time.
After this it is off to bed because we are all tired of the package opening and eating.
This is the best time of the year for me and I love how my family is so close at this particular moment.
So! This is our family tradition! I hope you enjoyed my post and tomorrow the last post of the year will appear on my blog.
See you tomorrow!!
