1. Waking up early
It doesn’t matter how old you are, waking up early is something kind of special at Christmas. Maybe the reason why we wake up early changes over time, instead of waking up and getting excited about what presents are under the Christmas tree, we wake up and prepare breakfast or get started on some Christmas dinner bits and bobs.
2. An advent calendar
Any excuse to have chocolate in the morning is always good right? Right.
Of course you don’t have to have a chocolate one, there are a wide variety – Lego do some great ones, and there’s countless beauty ones nowadays. So why not treat yourself to one.
I feel like people don’t do stockings much anymore, which is a shame. Stocking are always in Christmas movies on the mantel above an open fire – did anyone else wonder how they didn’t catch fire, or was it only me?
When I was a kid I always had a sack and a stocking was something that had joke presents – a fair few oranges where eaten during the day. I definitely want to start to bring back Christmas stockings in my Christmas traditions, but first I need a fire place…
4. Baking cookies
Is it even Christmas if you don’t make a batch (or three) of cookies? Why not try these white chocolate pistachio cookies here.
5. Playing in the snow
Although it doesn’t usually snow at Christmas in the UK, I feel like when it does we either hide indoors and curl up with a hot chocolate while watching a movie, or we run outside without and jump for joy. Plus, it’s great fun building a snowman in your garden.
