6 Days til Xmas

This year for some reason, I’m in such a Christmas mood! I can’t wait til Xmas :dance: therefore, I’ve changed the header until New Year when a brand new look will be unvealed which will be different than what I’ve ever had before (keep a look out!)

This Xmas will be the first I have spent without my parents so I feel a little weird! My parents cannot make it over from Paris until after New Year so it will be just my grandfather, my brother & I for dinner on Xmas Day. Possibly my aunts will come over the night before or after Xmas Dinner to give gifts, chocolate and money.

Our family does not celebrate Xmas Eve, but rather on the day itself by exchanging gifts at around 10am, then getting really dressed up, then the girls are in the kitchen cooking while the guys drink beer and watch TV. Also, in my family, we exchange tons of chocolate, like big boxes of it and we munch some of it before the Dinner :hehe:

Xmas Dinner in my family is huge lol we stuff our faces which is fun! We eat around 3-4pm after being in the kitchen since the morning, and this year I will have to cook all this by myself

Starters
Smoked Salmon Salad (for everyone but me)
Homemade Veggie Soup
Shrimp Salad (for meeeee)

Main Course
Turkey (my dad likes having Ham too but I don’t, so I won’t cook it)
Roast Potatoes
Veggies (Carrots, Peas, Brussel Sprots)
Gravy
Sage & Onion Stuffing
Tiny Sausages with Bacon wrapped around them

Dessert etc
Fruit Trifle with Ice Cream
Coffee

Then the rest of the day is playing with gifts, watching movies on TV, and you eventually are too stuffed to move and fall asleep :P

    Yaaay. Fa la la la la la la la.

    Heh. I don’t actually celebrate Christmas but I think it’s a wonderful holiday for those that do. Carols, presents, decorations, family, and food, what’s not to like?

    Mmmm turkey. What, no cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes? Or is that strictly for Yanks? (Do British people even actually say Yanks?)

    hehe, :) i hope you have a great time.

    they you described it, well that pretty much sums up how we, me and my family, spend Xmas day.

    but we also eat at christmas eve but not too much, it’s just a less casual and a tiny little bit more formal.

    and yes the result is the same.
    too much food that you can’t move :D

    Frantic…. it’s once a year we do this and anyway during 3eed and Ramadan you must stuff your face too, so keep ur opinions to yourself.

    Anyway, I dont need to explain my religion to you or anybody else.
