So each and every year there are a couple of things I find my self doing around this time of the year. I can’t help it, it’s like ingrained into my soul! I must do each of these things or else it just does not feel the same. I’m sure you all have things like this as well, I know I’m not the only one!
Watch Love Actually
I don’t really like most holiday movies (unless its hocus pocus during halloween because it’s pretty much a must watch!) but there’s something about this movie I need to watch every year. I know what happens, I know the good (and awful) things that are coming, yet every year I load the movie up because it’s just not Christmas unless I see Hugh Grant act like a sweet bumbling prime minister.
This is new and all my husband’s fault. It started the first year we started dating and it will happen this year as well. It’s tradition for us to spend Christmas with his family and eat steaming platefuls of homemade lasagna. Who am I to stop tradition?
Open presents at Midnight on Christmas Eve.
This one is a family tradition. My entire family gets together on Christmas Eve, We Party, We Drink, we make fools of ourselves (At least I do!) and we wait until midnight and open presents. I don’t think there was ever a year I didn’t do this.
This year I made a Ginger Bread Minion House with my Nephew, Last year I tried my hand at Fudge, and the year before that was cookies. Every year I make something sweet and Christmas related. You must think Why, when I don’t really like sweets? Well to be honest I don’t know, but the Martha Stewart that hides inside of be demands that I do.
So even though Christmas is my least favorite holiday and I don’t wrap presents well, and I always get so frustrated this time of year, I do find myself having Christmas Traditions.
Are there any traditions you find yourself doing this time of year?
So I am not sure if you notice, but the blogs name has changed! Socially Awkward Fashionista did not seem to suit me and kinda always bothered me so I changed it. My new blog name is ‘Up A Nelms Tree’ Let me know what you think! I’m trying to revamp this blog a bit for all my viewers and this is just the first step. I have a lot more in store.
I think pretty much everyone has seen Jessica Jones by now on Netflix. Over Thanksgiving break I settled in and watched it and I thought I would share with you all how I thought it was. Warning This will contain spoilers to the first season!
So in one day I feel like I’ve gotten a ton of bad news. I’m not going to share what it is, at least not today, but I will share with you today how I get through my bad news days and maybe help you when you get bad news.
