Christmas Eve Traditions

IT'S CHRISTMASSSSS!! (Well, not quite.. there's still 24 hours to go but eeeek!!) Can you believe that it's finally here?! This year has gone by SO fast!! For me personally, I actually prefer Christmas Eve to Christmas Day. That probably seems really crazy to some of you but once Christmas Day is over, that's it. It's over. But with Christmas Eve, excitement still lingers in the air as we all eagerly await for the big day to come tomorrow. And then of course, there's the annual traditions that come with it.

Christmas Pyjamas 
Every year me and my mum always buy a new pair of Christmas pyjamas and we've done this every year since I was a baby. It just puts you into the festive mood, waking up the next morning in your brand new festive pj's! This year I've opted for a pair of super cute and fluffy Me to You bear ones! 

Pamper Session
You can never go wrong with a good old pamper session to get you geared up for the big day at Christmas. I may either paint my nails, put in a hair mask or a face mask, have a nice long soak in the bath.. Christmas day can be very hectic so we definitely need to prepare with some pre-relaxation before hand!

Christmas Movies
There's nothing like getting into the festive spirit with some classic Christmas films. I have a shock confession to make... I have NEVER seen Frozen!! Tonight my mum and I shall be watching the sing-a-long version - You can't get more festive than that!

Festive Buffet
Each year, whilst sitting all comfy on the couch by the fire in our Christmas pj's and the Christmas film is on, me and my mum have a little mini buffet between the two of us. Not to mention a box or two of Roses. (AKA.. several boxes of every christmas chocolate imaginable.)

Christmas Photoshoot
As of last year, we set up a new tradition of having a little photoshoot by the Christmas tree in our festive pyjamas. There's clearly so much festive banter in my household.

Christmas Music
And whilst having that pamper session, you can't forget about the classic Christmas music! T'is the season to shake your baubles and all!
