Christmas Eve


Christmas Eve. It's definitely the most exciting day of the year, in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas Day but when you've opened your presents and had your dinner the excitement is all over. I love the rush of Christmas Eve, how you are counting down the hours all day just for that one day of the year we can't wait for. Everyone is rushing around making sure everything is prepared for the big day tomorrow well except for you. Yes, you the one reading this post you're the sensible one sat at home (most likely in bed!) scrolling through the laptop as you simply have nothing else better to do. Am I right?! Christmas Eve is full of traditions so I thought I would share a couple of mine with you in this short but sweet post before the big day is finally upon us tomorrow!

Christmas Eve PJ's
This is one I have done every single year since I was even born. My mum always makes sure we have a new pair, preferably warm with of course a Christmas design right across it. I have fleecy penguin ones this year! I just think it's really nice to snuggle up in bed in your new pj's and then wake up in the morning to open your presents in of course those new pj's!

Junk Food!
Now what Christmas is complete without junk food? We wouldn't all have that New Years resolution to lose weight otherwise! In our household we get all nice and cosy on the couch watching Christmas movies with a big tin of Quality Street's and a cheeky hot chocolate topped with of course some squirty cream!

Candles
I love candles. But I love them more than ever during the Winter season, I just find them so relaxing and Christmas Eve is definitely a day full of relaxation for me. I have one burning right through the whole day so when the candle is burnt up, it shouldn't be too long away for present time! I do wish now that I had bought Christmas Eve by Yankee Candle, oh well the Cinnamon Apple one that I am burning right now will just have to do! 

Christmas Music
Lastly, no Christmas Eve is even worth spending without blasting the Christmas songs throughout the day. Not only does it make the day fly by faster but it really does help to get you in the Christmas spirit!


So that's everything I like to do on Christmas Eve to get me into the Christmas spirit! What are your Christmas Eve traditions? Let me know in the comments down below! 

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

Until next time, happy holidays!
