A Very Merry Christmas to you πŸ˜

There are so many ways to spend Christmas I’m curious to know how you spend Christmas… So… how do you spend Christmas? I’d love to know more about my readers, all I get to see is who follows me and who likes my posts but unless you have a blog I don’t really know who you are. I’d love to know more, do you celebrate Christmas like me? Or, what religious festivities do you follow (if any – are you an atheist or secular humanist?) I’d love to know so please tell me πŸ™‚

In the UK (where I live) it’s 8pm now, and I have had an awesome day!! I woke up in my new flat with my boyfriend (it’s so new we still sit on the floor surrounded by boxes!), then we opened our Christmas presents to each other in bed wrapped up in blankets (because we have no heating). I gave my boyfriend new clothes (which look great on him btw) and in return I was given creative gifts including chalk board paint – to me this meant a whole new wave of fun. And a whole new fridge…

We debated whether it was appropriate to spend our Christmas morning doing ‘housey’ stuff and quickly decided that painting the fridge was more like playing with Christmas presents than than doing general household things – so we painted the fridge with chalkboard paint. Here it is so far:

The plan is to spray paint the white bits in copper spray paint and then do some of my designs in chalk pens on the chalkboard bits (maybe the drawing below – but it’s not quite finished). I can’t wait to show you when the fridge is finished 😍

Then, after a breakfast of scrambled eggs and smoked salmon (traditional family Christmas breakfast) and then showering – and attempting to make myself look half decent in a nice dress, I phoned my nan, to see if she needed a lift to my parents (she didn’t, my brother had got there first!). All that was left to do was to drive my hideously dirty car to my mum and stepdads house 20 minutes away.

That’s a pretty stripped down version of my Christmas morning, but there’s no need to tell you about the hair drying or washing up.

We arrived at my mums at about 1pm where we were greeted with wine, champagne, sherry and nibbles. My parents are wonderful at going out of their way to make sure you have anything you want to eat or drink (they go overboard -do you know anyone who does this?!)

The tabasco in that photo is for the bloody Mary’s which is the motherships speciality.

For us, Christmas is getting the family together and totally indulging on wine (and any other drink) and tasty food – to me it’s heaven and happiness. Even better now that my boyfriend shares this experience with me. We have Christmas dinner (the traditional turkey dinner which apparently is actually an American tradition that the British kinda stole πŸ˜†).

So I’m back to my original point. How do you spend Christmas? Do you go to church, do you spend it with family, volunteer at the homeless shelter or working? Do you celebrate christmas at all? Whats your religion? If any?

I have awesome readers and I know this because of your blogs and comments and I want to know more about you. So I’ll leave you with these questions, don’t be shy, you’re all welcome here ❀️

  1. This time I spent my Christmas staying at home and preparing for an exam. (Sigh……) But I’d usually spend it with my friends because I’m not a Christian and I am an atheist (so are my friends) so we just go out and have fun.

  2. Hi ! Love your blog, don’t always respond but I do read. My Christmas is pretty simple, spent with family at my home (daughter & son) with an occasional friend dropping by in the late evening on Christmas day. We do breakfast, that’s simple fair too, a hash brown casserole with Italian sausage, ham biscuits, eggs, coffee and assorted sweets, homemade cookies etc. We open gifts after we eat, then rest of the day is catching up with what’s going on with all of us. If you’ve been to my blog you know I bake cakes, so my weeks/days before Christmas are spent baking & decorating cakes for other people. (I love the decorating) I’m 81 so after such a busy time I need things to be simple and restful. πŸ™‚
