Have you been naughty or nice this year?! Today we spent the morning decorating the house and our Christmas tree. It´s a little on the early side (I know) but we had the whole day off so we thought it would be a great idea to do it now before it gets far too busy.
I have always totally loved Christmas and our children feel exactly the same way. Alex and I are always trying to persuade David and James that we should start decorating the house as early as possible. Alex love preparing for the holidays.
We always spend Christmas at my parents house. We celebrate Swedish Christmas on the 24th and British Christmas on the 25th and then we have an ”after party” on the 26th but this year we will have to cut it a little short since we have to fly off early to start rehearsing for the New Years´Eve Show on the 27th. We decided a long time ago to stop giving each other Christmas presents (among the adults). Of course we buy the children gifts but instead of us grown ups giving each other presents, we spend the money on delicious Christmas food instead and that´s the best decision we´ve ever made. Less stress and more joy and for me that´s what the holidays are all about. Joy, love and laughter together with your family and friends. How do you spend your Christmas?
