Christmas Countdown #9: Christmas Eve Essentials

Hey Guys!

I can't believe it's Christmas tomorrow- where has December gone?! I don't know about you guys, but I am ridiculously excited for tomorrow! On Christmas Eve, my family and I have a tradition where my sister and I open one present- Christmas PJs. After our showers and one final Christmas movie, we climb into our beds with fresh bed linen, in our new pajamas, to wait for Christmas morning. This year is no different, and my sister and I are getting onesies! Now onto my essentials for having a relaxing Christmas Eve.



1// Christmas Movies: These are some of my favorite Christmas movies, The Santa Clause series and The Snowman. I sing Walking in the air from the Snowman every year in my school choir, and it makes me feel so christmassy! I can't wait to snuggle up later


and watch these. Oh, Elf is a must- have too! ;)



2// Mince Pies: My sister and I made mince-pies the other day, you can find the recipes here, and for us,  mince pies are definitely necessary for Christmas Eve. Oh, and you have to leave a mince pie and a glass of milk out for Santa!



3// Hot Chocolate: Also necessary for having a relaxing Christmas Eve, is a steaming mug of hot chocolate. There's nothing better than sitting by the fire with a mug of hot chocolate, watching a nice Christmas movie <3


4// New Pyjamas: As I told you before, new PJs are essential for my sister and I on Christmas Eve. I can't wait to unwrap mine tonight!



5// Family: I know this is really cheesy, but Christmas Eve and Christmas Day just have to be spent with family, even if it's that one relative who insists on squeezing your cheek and telling you how old you've gotten. Just enjoy it, ok? <3


That's it for the penultimate post in my Christmas Countdown series. I really hope you've enjoyed it, I know I've had fun getting into the Christmas spirit with you all. I will do a short post tomorrow, but until then, I hope you have a great Christmas Eve, and relax. I hope Santa treats you all well!

Lots of love,

xoxo, Emma
