Almost ready for Christmas!
Despite the fact that I still have a distinct lack of Christmas spirit, I’m almost ready for the day. Here in Finland the celebration happens on Christmas Eve. We have our tickets booked ready to go down to spend it with husband’s family. The presents we’re taking have been wrapped. No tags on them yet because we haven’t found them… You’d think they’d be in the box we found the wrapping paper in, but apparently not. I have Christmas cards made to take with us, though we still need to work out who’s getting which, and get them written.
Christmas day is roughly planned out too. We’re going to keep the presents from England here and open them on Christmas day. We have our turkey (a breast fillet, not a whole one) in the freezer ready. Not much else to sort for that really.
We don’t have Christmas decorations up, but I think we’ll probably forego them… There’s still far too many boxes around, and I’m not sure covering them with tinsel is entirely the festive look we’re after…
