Advent Calendar Day 24 – Christmas Eve
Advent Calendar Day 24 – It’s Christmas Eve
Time for Christmas baking and wrapping up the last of the Christmas presents.
I’m getting the ingredients ready for Christmas bundt cake for Boxing day when the family come over for a classic meal of ham, mash potato, salad, coleslaw and pickles.
For Christmas dinner we are having Venison Wellington – Gorgeous venison with chopped up cooking apples and fresh cranberries wrapped up in pastry. It is so tasty and so easy to make. Plus it takes about 1 hour from making to eating which is a nice change from making a big turkey and spending all day on it. It makes us all a bit more relaxed.
A family Christmas Eve tradition in my house is to give each other brand new Christmas pyjamas. It’s lovely to have new wintery pjs on a special night of the year. Pjs and a Christmas movie on Christmas Eve. Fantastic. And a glass of mulled wine with a mince pie of course.
Everyone has different Christmas day routines. In my family it wouldn’t be Christmas Day without presents in pyjamas in the morning and Dr Who after dinner.
I hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas eve!
