Christmas Eve

Other than being 23 degrees celsius, Christmas Eve in Bermuda mirrors Christmas in the UK for most people on the island.

Tonight we have spent some time convincing my daughter to go to bed, wrapped more presents than is necessary, ran out of tape, crammed enough food for a small African nation into the fridge, toyed with preparing the vegetables, fussed over the frozen turkey, drunk wine, ate cheese, baked cookies for Santa, left a carrot out which I must remember to bite later, convinced my chorister-other-half not to go to evening mass but instead listen to Now That’s What I Call Christmas on repeat, sat down with a box of Heroes with It’s A Wonderful Life on, cracked nuts once I found the nut cracker and not the two that sit aside our fireplace that I spent hours cleaning this morning on my daughter’s wishes so Santa wouldn’t get his bottom dirty when he came down the chimney.

All with my parents for company, which is lovely.

Get to bed early, sleep tight and a very Merry Christmas to you and your families.

  3. And a very Merry Christmas to you and yours, CA.
    Edging you a bit temperature wise today (28 -Barbados) but who says Christmas can’t include the pool. Family around, prezzies for the kids, Mimosas for breakfast. Turkey and sausage stuffing later, Christmas Crackers etc. Lovely stuff.
    Just wanted to say thanks very much for sharing your adventures and thoughts on your great blog.
    Hope you and yours have a super 2018.
