Katy at Oh So Geeky has put together this fun Merry Fictional Blog Challenge, to spread some Christmas cheer online. It’s not too late to join in you can get all the details on her blog.
Advent Calendar: Traditions you celebrate during December?
Our traditions start over the first weekend of December, my in-laws have a tree trimming party. Most of the extended family come over. This marks the start of the holiday season for us. The rest of our traditions are pretty boring, I always put together a Christmas Eve Box, we have a movie night at home with cocktails.
When my dad was alive we would go to the cinema on Boxing Day. When the Lord of the Rings or Hobbit movies were released we saw them or the most recent Bond movie. Last year, my mum, sister and I went to see The Force Awakens and this year we will be seeing Rogue One. So I guess watching Star Wars on Boxing Day will become a new tradition.
