Christmas – Day 29 #BEDN
OK so it’s under 4 weeks to Christmas. Are you getting excited? Done all your shopping? Tree up yet?
It’ll be a quiet time for us, much different from when the boys lived at home! I’m not sure what the plan actually is for Christmas Day and Boxing Day yet. It’ll definitely be different from last year! This year we’ll only see son in Australia via a Skype session and oldest son had plans to have a Christmas Day without the pressure of visiting parents.
I’ve no idea what to buy for Hubby or what to have myself. I wouldn’t mind a new camera as mine is over 5 years old now. But if money was no object and excluding going to Australia I’d love to have this: (It’s only £2800!)
Our tree won’t be going up until about a week before, we have a new one this year and I’m under instruction not to buy any new ornaments this year! (OOPS already bought some lights!!) I already have too many baubles, some of the spare ones are put into a big dish with some candles and some others are strung on ribbons and dangle from our standard lamp.
We are not particularly religious and won’t be going to church. But will be mindful of true meaning of Christmas.
To me it’s a time of joyfullness with family and friends.
What is Christmas to you? Do you have any family traditions?
