2015 – Customer’s share their Christmas Traditions

Share Post:

“Our son and daughter in law have a film evening and the new pajamas at home is a great idea” – Jennifer

“A family tradition was for the family, five children plus mum and dad, to go to a Christmas movie together.  It was a wonderful way to get into the Christmas spirit.  Often the movies were intended for children but even as our children reached their teens and beyond, it still brought back that sparkle, and the desire to believe.  Nowadays we have a new tradition.  On Christmas Eve there is always a mysterious knock at the door but on opening it, there is no one there.  Instead there is a parcel for each grandchild containing pyjamas left by the elves.  All good children get these pyjamas and go to bed in anticipation of the next morning (one way to get them into bed). Happy Christmas” – Lee

“I have started doing the Christmas Eve tradition with my son where he gets a new Christmas book and pjs. He gets snuggled up in his pajamas and then we read his new Christmas book before going to bed.” – Karyn

“Motat christmas lights, drive thru christmas, take my boys to your shop to buy a new ornament for their trees smile emoticon and we do elf on the shelf.” – Dornae

“It is traditional for us to sprawl out on the carpet and sleep off the humungous lunch! Bodies everywhere!” – Lynda

“I’ve started up a Christmas Eve box for my daughter, she gets to open it on xmas eve, inside is a new decoration for the tree & a ‘magic’ key for Santa so he can get inside (both from The Christmas Heirloom Company) a new set of pjs, a little toy/gift, a yummy treat and The Night Before Christmas book to read together. Totally can’t wait for Christmas this year!!” – Rebecca

It starts Christmas Eve with all the kids (6) checking out the lights around town then come home for a hot chocolate and a story. We put out water and carrots for the reindeer and milk and a Christmas tart for Santa. In the morning the kids get to open their Santa sacks while we get ourselves up and dressed. Then it’s presents time. Paper everywhere and loads of smiles. A yummy Breakfast followed by tidying up after the presents. Then the rest of the family come for a late lunch and more pressies. Then just like Lynda’s it’s very much a relaxing day with full tummies and sleepy body’s. A good movie and a ham sandwich for dinner and left overs. Boxing Day breakfast is normally left over trifle and brandy snaps haha” – Kelly
