While the majority of the day, for me at least, is a family occasion, I thought it would be nice to share a few photographs from the day. The majority, unfortunately, had family members included within so there are only a couple of images I really want floating around the internet for everyone to see, but none the less, I like the idea of documenting things on my blog and Christmas day is just far too important to be missed. The day started for us around 8:30 am, despite us all being grown up and far past the "Santa years", there's just something about Christmas day that makes you want to wake up early...
We unwrapped our presents, exchanged gifts and festive cheer and put on our festive best. I will be uploading a post on a) what I got for Christmas this year, and b) what I wore/my makeup from Christmas within the next few days so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for both of those posts.
I love watching other people open their gifts, and this year was no different. I was extremely happy with my gift buying and so getting to watch the expressions on my loved ones faces as they unwrap their present is just unforgettable. We headed up to visit my Grandma and exchanged even more lovely gifts, and called in at my aunt on the way home.
Christmas dinner, well... there's very little to say on the matter besides oh my god, so much food. It's safe to say we have enough leftovers to last us into the new year. After dinner I went down to Josh's parents house to see them for a few hours, we played a few board games, had a few drinks and plenty of giggles.
The day finished, as always, relatively early. Everyone was tired from the sleepless night, still in a food coma from dinner and in some ways, couldn't wait for the day to be over, just to get a little normality back in our lives.
I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas day. Make sure to leave a comment saying your highlight from the day! <3
FYI: I will be uploading daily until the new year, and then after that things will be dropping to alternative days.
