My Christmas Eve Traditions

My Christmas Eve Traditions
It's Christmas Eve! Can you believe how fast this year has flown over?! Only felt like yesterday I was typing out my 2014 favourites. I really wanted to post something Christmas related today because I don't know when I will next get the chance to. So just like last year I decided to post my Christmas Eve traditions as I love reading what others get up to over the Christmas. These are things I get up to from when I wake up on Christmas Eve to when I go to sleep. 

Morning
First thing I do before anything is tuck into my second last piece of chocolate from my advent calender - who remembers these going all the way up to New Year?! It has been a tradition for almost 10 years or so now that me and my brother wake up in the morning to go out with my Dad for our breakfast. Usually tucking into a bacon sandwich and a yummy hot chocolate! Last year we went to Costa and this year I think we have decided to go over for dinner instead.

Afternoon
Once we go home up until around 5-6ish I tend to finish off any remains of writing Christmas cards, wrapping presents or just anything last minute whilst watching a festive movie (usually Christmas carol). This year I may watch Frozen or something on the TV. If I don't watch a film I usually listen to Christmas music to get me in the mood for Christmas more.

Evening
Once it hits 5-6 ish everyone starts having a bath - I am usually the last to go in purely because I take the longest (typical!). A bath just isn't the same without a Christmas LUSH bath product, I think this year I am using Dashing Santa or Candy Mountain. I also like to give myself a bit of a quick pamper with a face mask. A tradition that has went on since I was a child is having fresh, new pajamas's to wear on Christmas Eve. Christmas just doesn't seem the same without these tiny simple things. Once we are all in our new pajamas and had a bath we order a Chinese takeaway and watch a film on the TV until we are all stuffed to death and tired ready for Christmas day!

I hope you's all have a lovely Christmas!

What are your Christmas Eve traditions??
