Life Rambles ~ Christmas Day

It's time for another life rambles post, I had originally planned to do a post on what I was kindly given for Christmas but I changed my mind and thought I would tell you all how we do Christmas day in my house. Be sure to let me know in the comments how you guys do Christmas as I know everyone does it differently!

It is tradition every year that we all have new Christmas pj's to wear to bed on Christmas eve and wear to unwrap presents in the morning. Thankfully now me and my brother are older there's no getting up at the crack of dawn! I tend to be an early bird (with exceptions) and I actually managed to lie in till about 9.30am before I had to get up and get some tea, by the time I got downstairs I changed my mind and went for a hot chocolate with marshmallows and whipped cream to drink while I unwrapped presents!



Once we've opened presents and we are playing with the dog (he loves playing and ripping up the wrapping paper), my mum's partner cooks Christmas breakfast. It's another tradition in my house that I cook the Christmas dinner and my mum's partner does Christmas breakfast. What we actually do on Christmas day completely depends, sometimes we will see family and go for a dog walk, sometimes family come round, sometimes my mum's partner's kid will come round or they will go to there's, or we will have a chill day and just relax in our pj's all day with Christmas TV on! This Christmas I had pretty much a chill day, I stayed in my pj's and watched telly and cooked the Christmas dinner. And yes I did have do some nursing related work, it was only a little bit on Christmas. I just printed off the last couple of presentations that I needed to revise for my exam in January. The rest of the night was spent watching TV and films with the family! 

How do you guys spend Christmas in your house?
