Christmas The July Journal

Happy Christmas!

Christmas Day is the best day of year! That’s a fact. It’s full of unique moments cherished by each individual, family and friend. Some people go to their local pub for Christmas dinner, some spend it with many family members and others pretend the day doesn’t even exist, so I thought I would share my Christmas traditions!

Confession: I have been awake since 5.30am. However this is not for tearing off the Christmas paper in the quickest time possible; it’s to say good morning to my furry little friends, Millie and Charlie. Although I don’t do mornings well, these two brighten up my day and I can’t wait for them to open a selection of presents on their first Christmas later today. Now that I am 22 years old, I do miss the excitement and enthusiasm of running downstairs waking everyone up and receiving presents from ‘Santa‘. I’m sure everyone does but it’s nice to just have a chilled morning and enjoy the moment.

Usually, I would see my sister and brother-in-law for today’s festive celebrations but this year things are a little bit different. My first nephew has just been born so they are staying put while I get the chance to see my Dad this morning, spend some quality family time round at my Aunt’s house opening Christmas presents and eating a delicious Christmas dinner this afternoon and then spend some time with Edd and his family this evening. Just a little side note: my nephew, Noel Kaden Creasey, is a healthy 7lb 5oz and is currently getting used to being in the real world with my sister, brother-in-law and Frank the sausage dog. I’m really looking forward to it and I’m so excited to spend the rest of today with loved ones and doing something different to what usually happens. I just wanted to pop by and wish you all a massive Merry Christmas before all the festive goodness begins!

I hope you have a wonderful day! What’s your favourite part of Christmas Day? Let me know in the comments!
