I reckon everyone has opened their gifts already since yesterday. Does anyone wait till boxing day anymore? Ps: if you think you didn’t get a physical gift, for you to be reading this, you woke up right? Now that’s a gift, may the rest of 2014 and beyond be big massive gifts in your life.
I sent out the credit to the winners. Please just acknowledge receipt so I know it didn’t go to spam.
I was pleasantly surprised yesterday. Le hubstar bought me gifts. Not one but two. I got an S5- for which I am beyond grateful and my favourite perfume. I don’t think I even buy myself perfume anymore. My old phone looked like a prostitute that has been afflicted with numerous things. It was cracked – fell massively when I was offloading furniture for the school.
I married him already, but marry me is still my favourite by Lanvin – I have been on the matter for 5 years now lol. I wore marry me for our formal aka white wedding
Christmas was quiet and peaceful all things considered.
Coming to think of it, we never got Christmas gifts as kids. We always had the tree set up, complete with fake snow and candy canes. I doubt it was because my parents couldn’t afford it. I just think they didn’t see the point. My mom would however willing wrap an old toy for you if you insisted on having a gift. And she would put it under the tree. It used to drive her crazy that we ate all the candy cane off the tree, and so she would replace them every 2 days. That’s a whole lot of candy cane considering our tree got set up the first week in December. Lol.
Christmas was for staying home and watching “Jesus” movies. Eat some curry “anything”, drink some lemonade and watch movies. Growing up in my house, you figured out how to make lemonade by the time you were 3 and curry by about 5. You see my mom is originally from the carribean islands and she can get really cheap for no reason. Coke never lasted in our house and we had a lemon tree in the back. So pluck your lemon, roll it underfoot on the ground to soften it well, squeeze in one of those plastic squeezers, add sugar, water and a little red coloring voila you are good. Put it in the freezer and hope nobody “borrows” it. Lmao.
It’s amazing how I look back on my childhood and realise we didn’t have everything, but we didn’t know we didn’t have everything. So it was okay. We watched all the pre-recorded thunder cats, shared one computer to play prince of persia and apples/oranges. Maybe that’s where the sense of contentment comes in.
I think I will tell my kids when I have them that Santa will bring them gifts based on how much they have saved and how good they have been. I get upset when I see children who assume they deserve the world, but then who is to blame?
Anyways I hope everyone is having a fantastic holiday and getting in some rest. What was your most memorable Christmas and why?
