^^ I did a song!
Ahhh the day before Christmas Eve! It is today that Felix and I will make the drive back to my parents place to begin the festivities of Christmas.
I must admit... I'm a little EXCITED! Christmas at my house is fantastic. A Barbie angel always sits on top of our tree; a tradition my brother and i made up some years ago now. On Christmas Eve we watch Love Actually and Muppets Christmas Carol and leave the fairy lights on all night for last minute present fondling. And on Christmas morning we wake up early, and wait for an excruciating 2 hours before Dad comes home from work, and everyone wakes up. THEN IT'S PRESENT TIME!! We leave wrapping paper all over the floor all day and stash what we've received in opposite corners of the room. We lunch with my pop, and any other stragglers who we've picked up for the day, and spend the afternoon welcoming visits from family and friends.
For the next few nights we drink Baileys and play Euchre.
All these traditions make me so happy! I'm extra happy that Felix is involved in them now. But I'm also sad because this will be the second year in a row that my brother has been away.
I guess I'd better go start the day...
