My Christmas Traditions
During the holidays, my family gets very busy. With my brothers birthday, my grandpa’s birthday, Christmas shopping, Christmas dinner, secret santa, and Christmas decorating. For this weeks SBC post I’m talking about a few of my favourite family traditions.
1. Christmas Eve Movie
Every year for as long as I can remember, I’ve sat down on Christmas Eve and watched The Sound of Music with my family. Honestly I don’t know how this tradition came to be, but to this day I love it. It might seem like your average movie night but there are many things going on behind the scenes ( which makes it even more fun ) to due with the jolly man to come!
2. Christmas Eve “behind the scenes”
As previously mentioned, during the events of the night before Christmas, there is some pretty special stuff going on behind the scenes. Every year since I was little, “santa,” has gone through TWO trips to my house. One on Christmas while we’re asleep, the other on Christmas Eve. “Santa,” comes by and leaves us brand new pyjamas outside on the windowsill.
3. Christmas Cookies
Another pre-Christmas tradition is making Christmas cookies with my aunt. That may sound SUPER cliche, but I promise it’s not. My aunt, a baker, helps my siblings and I make a large variety of choosiest, some iced, sprinkled, or left plain. The end result is usually, a years worth of sweets, a ruined kitchen, and time well spent!
If you’ve also noticed, I’ve spiced up my blog for the upcoming holiday that I am clearly super excited for!
Happy Holidays… Ciara ✌️
