  1. The best thing about Christmas is not the presents that we all receive, it is about spending time together as a family. Every Christmas morning, we wake up early, open the presents together, have a lovely breakfast and then all get dressed in our togs, head to the beach and go for a swim. When we get home, we head around to my Grandmother's house and open more presents and then take her up to my Aunty's place and we have a HUGE family lunch up there (my Dad is one of 14 and I have 40 first cousins who mostly have children now too -so it is BIG) and we have such a great day. That is what I love about Christmas, the family togetherness.

  2. I love the smell of pine trees,
    I love the wide eyes and gasps of children on Christmas morning,
    I love the squeals of delight as kids try out their new toys,
    I love the quiet that follows as they play with their toys,
    I love the lights that decorate the neighbourhood,
    I love the feeling of being loved and loving my family.
    I love my husband will be home from work for our daughters first Christmas.

  3. The best thing about christmas is seeing my childrens faces on christmas morning when they see what santa has left them. I love that feeling. I also love getting together with friends and family to share christmas dinners, lunches, and breakfasts. I also ADORE my mother-in-laws desserts that she prepares.

  4. On the first day of December up goes the xmas tree
    Decorated by the kids – it’s quite a site to see
    Tinsel strewn all over, and baubles only placed at kiddy height
    I think the tree looks terrible – but the kids think it looks alright.

    Egg Nog hits the shelves of Coles and Woolies
    I think I need to buy shares in Egg Nog – Santa grant that wish please
    See my husband drinks a litre or two everyday
    He says since it’s only out once a year to let him have his way.

    Lights pop up around the neighbourhood – and wow they look pretty
    I can’t help but smile when I see them -that I’m not paying their electricity
    Some lights look extravagant and people come from miles to see
    The displays they make from the lights – wow, A+ for creativity

    Although a Grinch or Scrooge I may appear to be
    I actually do love the xmas cheer and glee
    The look on kids whispering their wishes on santa’s knee
    And my favourite part is eating turkey after xmas for breakfast lunch and tea!!! :)

  5. Christmas to me is one event in the year
    That each member of the family is waiting for the festive cheer,
    We reflect on the past year, the highs and the lows,
    Hoping that the next year has minimal woes.
    It is my daughters second visit from santa,
    Telling her that he has delivered presents even in atlana,
    I will always love christmas for the joy it brings to me,
    The lights, decorations and the presents wrapped up tight under the tree.
    Knowing that everyone leaves lunch happy and full,
    That the left over meal will last for days and days,
    shhhhh dont tell mum i loved it, she doesnt like the praise!!!

  6. Christmas 2009

    12 Man tent and equipment.......$600
    Petrol for the motorbikes.......$60
    Food and toiletries.............$150

    The look of excitement on the kids faces when though know that Santa has left a bag of goodies at the end of the bed ..........................Priceless

  7. What I used to love about christmas before I moved to Australia:

    Christmas eve service at church at night, all dressed up in special clothes and walking home through a cold winter night. It's pitch dark outside but when you look in the windows of the houses you can see the christmas trees brightly lit. When safely and warm home you take off your scarves, hats and gloves and rub your hands to warm them. Mum makes pastries and chicken ragout and we eat an evening snack at 10pm. The last person who goes to bed has to remember to turn off the lights of the tree. Dressed in flanelette pj's, snuggling under two big winter quilts in bed and thinking of the next morning.

    Christmas hasn't even started but you feel so fluffy and warm and happy and thankful for family, friends and above all for the birth of Jesus Christ.

  8. I like buying presents for everyone and seeing how excited my daughter gets.
    Also love spending xmas day with my partners family and then with mine :)
