First of all, I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and A Happy Holidays! 🎄
My favourite time of the year where I can put out my Christmas lights and just look at them forever haha. The little things that make me happy 😊
I want to take the opportunity of this Holidays post to share a tradition I recently discovered online :Jólabókaflóðið aka The Christmas Book Flood.
From what I understood, a free book catalog is distributed to each household every year and from that people chose which books to give and exchange to one another.
I mean.. YES PLEASE?! HAHA I need this in my life. But my friends and family in Montreal are no bookworms 😦 Although I’m always the one giving them books haahah convincing them to read. Who wants to exchange books with me ? 🙋♀️
It’s such a nice tradition that I think I would implement it on my future children 😂
TRANG’S CHRISTMAS TRADITION
Speaking of traditions, I thought it would be fun to share a bit about our family’s tradition. We would go to the Mass on the 24fh of December in the evening, then go home to eat supper. We would try each of us to cook something and have this big feast. For dessert, we would eat the typical Yule log cake. And then.. GIFT OPENING TIME!
We open it at night ahah usually around 11pm to midnight. Since we are a small family (me, my sister and my parents), we always get up to 3 gifts each. Then on the morning of the 25th, we would eat a little breakfast together. That’s it 😊
Christmas is all about spending time with my family and I’m so grateful to be able to share this moment with them. Through all the downs and lows this year, we will be stronger than ever I’m sure. I hope every single one of you can spend quality time with your loved ones, family and friends.
What about you? What are your Holidays traditions? I’d love to know ♥️
Again, have a Happy Holidays, big love! 🎄🎉
