I love Christmas. I love that it’s (usually) cold outside but warm and perfect for hot chocolate inside. It’s fun to put up decorations and have a tree. The novelty of Christmas movies is also fun. There’s just so much that goes with the season. Even if you don’t do the Santa Claus thing with the kids, there’s a lot of fun during the holiday season.
Of course, my favorite thing about Christmas is that I get to sit on the couch all day and read. I also eat candy until I feel sick. For some reason, that’s part of the charm of Christmas.
Our Christmas tradition revolves around chilling out all day. No rushing around. No trying to make it to various events. We head up to my parents’ after Christmas. This is fun, and I like spending that time with my family, but on Christmas Day itself it’s really about us.
Yes, that’s right. We’re kind of selfish on Christmas. We do the things we want to do. I read. My husband goes back to bed. My son enjoys his presents and watches movies. It’s the one day a year that we have no obligations at all.
And we like it.
Everyone has their own Christmas traditions. Hopefully, you get to spend Christmas the way you want to. Best wishes for a Merry Christmas.
