Now I know a lot of my readers are from different countries other than AUS, so I thought I'd share with you my very Aussie Christmas because just like all you lovely folk reading, it was unique!
Christmas Eve featured a night of Christmas carol watching (and singing! :) and then popping in Miracle On 34th Street (a Christmas tradition in our house hold) and then snuggling up into bed anxiously awaiting the on-coming day!
I woke up at 5:30 am thinking it was 6:30am, so jumped out of bed, got all excited and then glanced at the clock again and jumped back into bed and read some blogs for an hour- I was up, might as well do something ;)
Then I was truly up, sneaking a peak into our living room (it is very hard to hide a bike) and got another buzz when I saw my present (hint- it was a bike ;) I quickly threw together one of my absolute favourite breakfasts:
Green mango smoothie:
After that, back home, preparing Christmas lunch (I made these awesome Christmas tree napkins for the plates) and as soon as the grandparents arrived we got into the presents and then a beautiful Christmas lunch (mainly cold meats and salad- it's hot you know!) and finishing off with some desserts I whipped up for the fam :)
What's for dinner? Not quite sure, I'll probably just throw a bunch of veggies together in a bowl and be quite content (isn't that what I do everyday?) But right now all I'm thinking about is how grateful I am to have my wonderful family and loved ones in my life, the blessed life I get to live, the fact that we can come together on this day, celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and be with the ones we love.
So I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, wherever you are and whatever you're doing- I hope it's a good one! :D
How about you?
What's a typical Christmas Eve/ Christmas tradition for you?
Christmas breakfast/ lunch or dinner? We generally have a family Christmas lunch.
Best Christmas present you've ever gotten? I think this bike is right up there for me!!
Bye for now friends and happiness and good wishes to you all! :D xo
