2020 has been difficult, but thankfully, Boris gave me the all-clear in an open letter, to still do my Christmas duties, being a key-worker myself, therefore the lead up to Christmas has been busy!
Last night, Christmas Eve, I was out for the majority of the night dropping off presents. I had a lie in this morning and I slept well after a few too many mince pies. For me, Christmas morning is all about myself and Mrs Clause – we sit around the TV, with the classic fire Youtube video on, having a light breakfast.
At around midday, the elves joined us for some festivities, we played a good old game of charades, whilst my Missus got the dinner cooking. Charades got slightly competitive, so we stuck on the TV to see loads of films all about me?? Funny that.
By 1, Mrs Clause had the dinner served and we all met at the table to have the biggest feast of the year. We pulled the Christmas crackers and all took turns to read the same story of how the Christmas Cracker was invented in the 1840s by the baker, Tom Smith. I’m sure you’ve heard it once or twice before. It was all lovely until Rudolph had a few too many sprouts, doing some absolute stinkers.
At 3, once the dinner has settled, we all gathered around the TV to watch the Queen’s Speech, service isn’t all that in the North Pole, but we got a general idea. After that, we went back for some dessert, can’t beat a good old Christmas pudding with custard, a couple of profiteroles and a slice of Yule Log to conclude the meal.
After pudding, we tend to go out for a chilly walk around the block. It’s nice to appreciate the crisp cold air and see everyone smiling and happy.
I hope you all had a very merry Christmas, and you got everything you dreamed for. Take care of yourselves. For the rest of the day, I’m going to crack open a bottle of Baileys with Mrs Claus, and catch up with my loved ones on a 2020 favourite, Zoom.
