Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. Three of my favorite Christmas traditions are my Advent calendar, the present I get on Christmas Eve, and the Christmas morning breakfast and opening presents. I have had 11 Christmases and they have all been fabulous.
My Advent calendar was handmade for me by my Gram. She also made one for my sister. Each day I get to take something out of that day’s pocket; sometimes it is chocolate and sometimes it is socks. My mum chose everything. It is super cool.
Each year I get to open a single present on Christmas Eve. I usually get a pair of PJs. Sleeping in the new pajamas is warm and cozy and helps me remember such an exciting time. I love getting to open the first gift.
On Christmas morning, I wake up super early. I go and make sure there are presents under the tree for everyone in my family. If there are, I then go wake up my parents. They let us open our stockings while my mum makes breakfast. After breakfast, we rush to the living room and tear open our gifts.
I hope this Christmas is as great as all of the others. I hope yours is, too.
