I already knew what today's activity would be - to put the Christmas decorations up. Waiting for Christmas Eve to decorate the house is a childhood tradition which I've chosen to continue, although interestingly, my siblings all now decorate their homes early in December.
So far today it has been exactly as I hoped it would be. I put the tree in place first thing and put a few of the baubles on, and then placed the rest of the decorations around the room - I only decorate the living room. Today it's open house so throughout the morning people have been popping in to see me and whilst here, in between hot drinks and mince pies, they've all added some more of my cherished trimmings to the tree - I've done this in previous years and some of them now have their favourite baubles to look for and put in place. By the time the last person leaves tonight, the tree will be decorated and the lights switched on.
I hope you all have a lovely Christmas, however you choose to celebrate.
