So lets get started by sharing what we did last year for Christmas!
C: every Christmas Eve we always go to my Aunties house for a little party with my Dad’s side of the family. My dad eats and drinks too much, and my older brother always has too much garlic bread and then can’t sleep. Family tradition. We then go home and have a Baileys before bed! Both L and I stayed at my parents last year so we woke up their on Christmas morning and opened our presents together/ate lots of bagels and smoked salmon for breakfast. We then went to see his parents and drove down to Sheffield to have Christmas with the rest of his family. That was my first year away from my family = being a grown up!
A: I like to throw a bit of a party on Christmas eve, with my boyfriend and I’s family. We have a tiny home though, so feeding 25+ people isn’t easy – last year I made pies in mugs because it meant that people didn’t have to faf about with plates etc! We also drink snowballs and mulled wine (against the law not to!). We headed to my father-in-law (to be)’s house early on Christmas morning, so we could be with Jim’s family and little niece and nephew whilst opening prezzies! We then headed to my family’s for dinner, and spent the afternoon with them.
