Christmas is my absolute favorite time of every year. It always flies by so quickly, and I am always left feeling pretty sad that it’s over already. I’m the person that has the Christmas tree up the day after Thanksgiving and is begging to keep it up until like February haha. Yes I know that might seem crazy, but I just love it so much!! I love the whole season around Christmas, but I also specifically love Christmas day because with my family it’s always a really chill day. We wake up whenever we want to. There is no rush…although typically we start between 8 and 9. We open our stockings (which is still my favorite thing to do) and then we eat breakfast…but like a proper breakfast…eggs, bacon, cinnamon rolls, fruit, etc.
After that we open our Christmas presents, but again there is no rush. We take our time. When we finish opening presents, my mom typically starts making a proper dinner for lunch, which this year included filet mignon and crab cakes. Then we do a variety of things for the afternoon. We take a walk, play board games, watch movies, etc. We have no agenda and nowhere that we need to be. It is never crazy or chaotic. We just spend quality time together. I think that’s why I love it so much. It’s a relaxed day with the people that I love most.
And so I’m very sad that it’s all over and done with just like that. But I can’t wait for next year!!!!!!!! 😉
Much love, B
