I spent last Christmas the same as the Christmas. Open pressies in the morning, family round for lunch, fell asleep watching telly in the evening. On Boxing Day we had the family over for a buffet dinner.
I spent it with my parents and my brother and his family. We usually celebrate on Christmas Eve with a big dinner and then Santa comes. Christmas Day is quiet for us, so we either go to the beach or just hang out at home.

Christmas...I finished up work (traditional media) on the 17th and still had my new media work to do on and off. Attended to my editors queue here at HubGarden. I did Christmas shopping, cleaned the house, caught up with family and friends - spent heaps of time with them. Went on a mini-holiday on New Year Eve, and returned to Sydney yesterday. Getting back into it tomorrow (still part-time yet increased hours) so all good!
Christmas Day: woke up at family home. Have breakfast. Unwrap presents. Have lunch. Chat and rest. That was it.
Surrounded by family. We opened presents in the morning, had a light brunch followed by a big lunch undercover in the garden because it was raining. We finished the day with a bonfire (luckily there weren't fire restrictions this year due to the rain) and roasted marshmallows. It was lovely.
Woke up, got to Church, saw all my friends... gave gifts and received gifts of money.The church family like to bless me so I can continue to do my ministry.
Drove home, got ready to go to my son's and his wife and grandchildren.
Had a wonderful family lunch, played with the grandchildren...so much excitement!
What a day.......Then went home many hours later, and collapsed...lol
A great time was had by all.
