Merry Christmas Everyone!
I hope you all have a wonderful day!
Just one more sleep till Christmas! Today I’m just doing some last minute touches for gifts and food. And tonight we will be watching It’s a Wonderful Life, another Christmas tradition in our house.
How will you celebrate Christmas Eve?
My favourite Christmas story is Twas the Night Before Christmas. Every Christmas, I snuggle in bed and my dad reads it to me. I love the art in this pop up book. It’s a special holiday tradition!
What’s your favourite Christmas story?
Hmm, a day in the life of getting ready for Christmas!
9 AM – wake up, take out the dog, eat breakfast
10 AM – read my Christmas book for tomorrow’s review
1 PM – eat lunch
4 PM – go visit my grandma with my mom in her nursing home
5 PM – SHOPPING!
7 PM – eat dinner
9 PM – wrap some gifts for visiting friends the next day
10 PM – some more reading, and write my review for the next day
12 AM – finally go to sleep!
What does your day look like leading up to Christmas?
Homemade gifts are always a great idea! A last minute gift idea is Christmas cookies. You can make them yourself, or buy cookies to decorate. There are tons of kits with gingerbread cookies ready to decorate. You can decorate them and personalize them for whoever you’re giving them to. Then just wrap them up and you have a great Christmas gift!
What are your last minute gift ideas?
This is the last week before Christmas and I have so much to do! I still have to buy a bunch of gifts for my mom and wrap most of them. I usually like to do all my wrapping at once in one afternoon. That’s what works for me.
I also have to keep reading my Christmas books for my 12 Days of Christmas Reading. These festive stories are really getting me into the holiday spirit!
How are you preparing for Christmas?
Our stockings are stuffed with toiletries and little goodies. We always get a toothbrush! And some makeup and soaps, things like that. There’s also some kind of treat or candy!
What do you stuff your stockings with?
I’m from Canada. My family celebrates Christmas on Christmas Day. We open our stockings and gifts when we wake up. Then in the evening we have a big turkey dinner with stuffing, potatoes, veggies, and delicious turkey. We finish off the meal with treats and cookies.
How do you celebrate Christmas in your home country?
I haven’t put up my Christmas tree yet, so here’s an photo from Christmas morning a couple of years ago, featuring my neighbour’s dog, Codie, who stays with us when his family goes home for the holidays.
Have you put up your tree yet?
