Christmas Memories…..

How’s everyone’s holiday going!? I hope you’re all enjoying yourself and have had a good day, today just feels like a regular old Tuesday to me even though it is Christmas Eve, but I hope you guys have enjoyed the holidays so far, we still got Christmas Day to get through, so although Christmas Eve is almost heading off into hibernation soon, we still have tomorrow to enjoy and make the most of so in case some of you are sad it’s almost over…….

Just know it isn’t quite over yet!! So question since we’re on the topic of it, how did you guys spend today!? Also when it comes to Christmas Eve do you guys open presents the day of Christmas eve or do you do it traditionally and wait until midnight when it gets close to Christmas Day!?

When I was younger, I used to wait up until midnight to open presents, everyone else would open them right away, but I followed tradition, now well I probably would just open it, however I still try and stay with tradition and wait until at least Christmas Eve, but I won’t wait until midnight,

I will wait until it gets a little dark though so around night time, I haven’t done it traditionally in a very long time, it was always fun giving yourself the anticipation with having to wait until a certain time to open any gifts you got, at least for me it was anyway, everyone else couldn’t wait, but for a while I made it my duty to wait until midnight to allow myself to open gifts, my own family would get impatient telling me to open it, but I would not,

I took it very seriously, I don’t know why I would make myself wait until midnight when I was allowed to open it the moment I got it, what a weird kid right!? Let’s be honest here, no kid would wait that long to open a gift!!

The one thing about doing that though is whenever I bought someone a gift I would make them wait until midnight rolled around to open it, i’d tell them I got them a gift, but that they would have to wait to get it, which of course they did not like very much, but that was the rules and I made sure to let them know……good times those moments were, good times.

I still think I was weird kid though…..for actually waiting is what I mean, I was an overall weird kid, but more because I actually didn’t mind waiting to open gifts, I know I probably didn’t have to explain it, but I did it anyway…..

What are some of your fond holiday memories!?

An Hour Before Midnight…..

11pm.

I was in a deep sleep, but was awaken,

By the sound of chaos filling this house….

I try and head back to sleep, but it’s no use

The chaos only grew louder and louder….

Stuck in a tense state, wanting to scream

Wanting to shut off the noise, but unable to….

My emotions then start to go into hyperdrive

A growl with the words “shut up” escaped my mouth,

Only no one could hear…..Chaos that’s all we ever hear

……..

Outside now…..it’s calm,

No noise, just me and the cold air

I sit with my tea in hand,

Looking at the night sky, gazing at the few stars in it……

Planes in the sky, oh how I wish that was me on them.

I look around a bit and then back at the sky

Thinking to myself about everything in my mind

The night sky sure is lovely don’t you think!?

Makes you not want to leave it…….

………

Back inside, I walk around a few rooms

Now in my room, tired, but also restless

1am, the clock reads,

Around 1:30am is the time I finally get to sleep

A lot in my head though, but not too long

That hour before Midnight,

Soon turned into the morning…..

All The Love ❤ ❤
