    Christmas is all about spending time with all our lovely family, chatting, games, great food and very happy to see our children and grandchildren enjoying themselves together.

    Christmas Eve time to check everything is ready. Hidden presents found and put round the tree. Relax before going to midnight service. Waken by Grandchildren ringing to Santas been, visit neighbours before going to our daughter for Christmas lunch- more excitement watching grandchildren playing with their new toys

    i work Christmas eve, but when i get home i like to make dessert for the next day, a yule log or last year was a black forest gateaux.
    Christmas day is different every year. Last year was super special because i proposed to my partner 🙂 it was amazing. and it was just us two on Christmas day as i work boxing day.
    This year we are cooking dinner for my family and they are coming round, fingers crossed i dont over cook the turkey, lol!

    I pick up the turkey and any other bits and pieces at lunchtime before the shops close.

    We visit our local church for its Christmas Eve carol singing concert, have a light supper before leaving our a mince pie and drink for Santa and a carrot for Father Christmas before going to bed.

    My ideal Christmas morning is waking up with my husband, opening our presents together, then a leisurely breakfast with my parents before we go off to the in-laws for more presents, Christmas lunch and a snooze in front of Christmas telly

    Christmas Eve has to be visit the relatives who can’t be seen on Christmas Day, then some family time and the obligatory early children’s presents (always new pyjamas!!). Once the kids are in bed it’s time for a cheeky couple of drinks and the Christmas present arranging dance.#exciting

    Our Christmas eve is always been spent as a family, we get all the house ready and prepare all the food for Christmas day,we like to play games before the children go to bed, Christmas is a very hard time as I lost my dad in December a few years ago so being around my mum is so important,

    Every year Christmas to me is lighting up our home with Christmas cheer but this year it will be different as I have just lost the light of my life so the lights have gone out in our house but I will be lighting up my daughters house instead

    Ideally on Christmas Eve all the beds are made, preparation done for Christmas Day, the relatives arrive and 13 of us sit down to a meal of smoked salmon, prawns and avocado and then fillet of salmon for the main. Time for a drink and then relax until midnight service at the village church. And then on Christmas Day the children are up early to open their stocking presents and the preparations start for Christmas lunch. Oh, I’m exhausted just thinking about it!

    Xmas eve the kids are allowed to open a present ( which is always new pj’s and slippers and a small stocking filler ) then kids go to bed ( in new pjs)
    Then the husband and I prepare the veg for the next day whilst watching a film.

    Very early start on Xmas day having a 4 and 2 year old, lots of presents opened, out of about 25 presents only 2 of them the kids will actually play with again after Xmas day!
