I love all things Christmas and have a few things we always do,it has changed since my boy’s grew up and left home as when they were here we always gave then new PJ’s on Christmas Eve ,write a letter to Santa and always went to visit Santa and other kids stuff. Here are our traditions for us,the empty nester’s with Grandchildren.

Mum (me) always watches National Lampoon’s Christmas vacation when she puts up the tree and the decorations and have done so for years
We always go late night shopping and have a Christmas hot chocolate at our favourite coffee shop
We always put out cookies and milk for Santa and a carrot for the Reindeer on Christmas Eve (my grown up Son’s think this is hilarious)
