Hey guys! It’s your girl Viola, and it is Christmas Eve!!!!!!!!! And, this is my 50th post on my page!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so happy!!!!!
It doesn’t feel like Christmas Eve to me though, I don’t feel like it’ll be Christmas Day in less than 24 hours time, but I’m still excited!
I’m sure everyone has their own Christmas Eve traditions, whether it be a movie night, Christmas Carolling, playing board games or anything, so I am going to share with you, my Christmas Eve traditions.
I always have a lie in on the 24th because I’m usually up at 8am the next day, and when i DO get up I always have a big mug of hot chocolate with extra cream and extra marshmallows. However, I’ve just got a new coffee maker installed which has a milk foamer mixer thing, so now I can have warm foamy milk in my hot chocolate which is even better. I don’t have the same breakfast every year, I just have whatever I’m in the mood fro, but I always have a mince pie after my breakfast because they are so good, and I follow my breakfast by taking my dog for a long walk in the cold winter air.
Just after lunchtime, me and my dad go and visit my Nan who lives in a village not far from my town. She always makes a trifle and her delicious secret recipe stuffing for us to take home and have for our Christmas Dinner. She has told me the recipe, but I don’t think I’ll be able to make it as well as she does.
Before tea time I always have a shower. I used to have a bath with a large bath bomb but our bathtub was thrown out years ago, so now I just use my favourite shampoos and soaps.
For tea my mum and dad watch a movie in the dining room and me and my sister watch a movie out in the conservatory. We always watch the same movie every year on the 24th, the Polar Express. It’s my most favourite Christmas movie ever of all time. Our traditional Christmas Eve dinner is Roasted pull-of-the-bone Duck with those very thin, savoury Chinese pancakes and cucumbers and spring onions. We don’t always have dessert but we do have a starter of King Prawns with a dipping sauce, Spring Rolls and Salmon canapes. A very fishy starter.
When I was little I used to go to bed really early because I wanted the night to fly by and for it to be Christmas morning as soon as possible. Now I go to bed only a little earlier than usual but only because I don’t get a lie in the next morning, but I have a second hot chocolate first and a browse on YouTube.
Well guys, that is my Christmas Eve traditions, I hope you enjoyed and I will see you all tomorrow.
Viola over and out xxx
