Festive-Blog-Athon Day Twenty Four: Xmas Throwback & Traditions ++ Special Festive Giveaway

Today is the last post for Festive-Blog-Athon! Feel kind of sad ending this today! I've had so much fun these past 24 days.. however will talk more of that later.
 First is my post about my Xmas Traditions from the past when I was growing up.

Our First Tradition is on Christmas Eve for me and my younger Lois when we was younger was we used to get new pjs, put them on and then would snuggle up on the sofa to watch a couple of Christmas Films to bring in the Christmas and then would run upstairs excited for Christmas Day to arrive and would try and listen out for Father Christmas..which one year when I was younger I did hear bells and got all excited that he was here!As me and my sister are getting older we now have a tradition every Christmas Eve is the four of us go for a meal at the local pub and get all a bit festive and bring the Christmas cheer in after having a hard week at work with working in retail.

Christmas Day when me and Lois were younger was the exciting part being up at crack of dawn would run into our mum and dad's room and we weren't allowed downstairs until my dad checked if "he had been" only then could we run down stairs and see our presents!

Christmas Day morning after the presents on the couch are opened we have Bucks Fizz and a cooked breakfast which is always so yummy! Then after that we all open all the presents under the Christmas tree.

 My mum is always the one who cooks the Christmas Dinner and she makes it oh so perfect! Turkey and all the trimmings ( Sprouts, Parsnips, Roast Potatoes, Mash, Carrots.. yum yum)

I can’t believe this is the final post in the Festive-Blog-Athon and I just want to say thank you for everyone that has made this such a success. Thanks to everyone that has read, shared and participated, and a huge thank you to all of the people that kindly did a festive guest post. We’re truly honoured and thankful.
