Merry Christmas Everyone!!
Hey lovelies, this post is going live on Christmas Day so as you’re reading this I’ll either be opening presents, visiting family, eating or I’ll be in a massive food coma from how much I consumed at Christmas dinner!
I thought I’d do a nice light-hearted post for Christmas day so I asked people on Twitter to send me their favourite Christmas memories so I could put them all into a post. Thank you so much to every one who took their time to send me something for this post I’ve enjoyed reading every single one of them!
My Christmas Memory
I love Christmas so much, I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad one except one year when I was younger I was actually sick on Christmas Day which pretty much ruined it for me as it was right before dinner so I spent the rest of the afternoon asleep on the settee. Other than that I always try to make the most out of Christmas and my Mom has always been so good to us she really spoils us bless her, if you’re reading this then thank you Mom!
I remember when I was back in primary school it would have either been Christmas 2004 or 2005 I asked for a Baby Annabelle and a karaoke machine, I didn’t think there was any chance I’d get both as they were both quite expensive but when I came down on Christmas morning there was my santa sack full of presents with two stacked on top of the settee and I told my brother before I even opened them I knew what they were and sure enough my amazing Mom had gone and got me both along with a load of other things!
I spent the rest of the day singing (more like squawking, I am a terrible singer and in hindsight don’t even know why Mom let me have a karaoke machine) my heart out to songs from Grease and loved every second of it!
I also have to give a special mention to Christmas Eve of 2012 as that was the day that I met my now Fiancé, I went to the pub to meet up with some people I had worked with on the run up to Christmas in my temp job and he was there. We spoke for ages and he added me on ‘BBM’ yes it was that long ago we both had Blackberrys and I spent most of Christmas Day talking to him as well! The rest is obviously history and soon we’ll be moving into our first home together just over 6 years after we first met!
@MartaAzra said ‘My favourite Christmas memory is also my saddest. It was the last Christmas with my grandmother. She was sick for a very long time, by that time she was in a wheelchair and had trouble speaking. We took her home from the hospital to spend the Christmas with us and you could see the pure joy on her face when my dad brought her into the house and there were all of her grandchildren were waiting to decorate the tree with her’.
@CharlotteCBlogs said ‘I loved leaving carrots and a mince pie out for Santa and his reindeers!! My family and I also used to drive around and look at all the houses Christmas lights’
@BekSlaing said ‘my favourite Christmas memory is when we had Christmas at home and invited some family and friends. It wasn’t an insane amount of people, but it was the biggest Christmas I ever had. (It probably felt bigger than it was because I was still small, as well!) We had to put two different tables together in this long line from the living room to the dining area, and loads of chairs squished together to fit everyone in! It felt so cosy, lively and fun, and like a proper “family” Christmas should. Like you see in the movies’
@hiyaitsahley said ‘I live at home with my parents and two sisters and on Christmas Day we always go to visit my grandparents. On this particular Christmas when we arrived, it was to the pleasant surprise that our whole fmaily was there. It doesn’t sound like much, but there are 17 of us (including aunts, cousins and cousins’s kids) so we rarely ever get to be all in the one place at the same time. It was so nice to get to spend a few hours surrounded by 4 generations of the family all at once, just playing games, sharing stories and overeating way too much! Even if some of us had to end up in the garden or front steps due to lack of space!’
@FrasersFunHouse said ‘My favourite memories are the years I spent staying over at my Grandparents house on Christmas Eve. I think they were equally as excited as me about going downstairs to see if Santa had delivered any presents, especially my Grandad. They always ensured the whole experience of Christmas was a magical one filled with fun, laughter and love. I have always strived to recreate the same feeling for my family and give the kids the same warm fuzzy feeling I get when I look back on those Christmases.’
I hope you’re all having an amazing Christmas Day and that you got everything you wished for! This is going to be my last Blogmas post so thank you to everyone that has read my posts and supported me throughout December! Merry Christmas guys!
