Merry Day After Christmas! I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday spent with your loved ones. I asked you guys on my Insta Stories if you wanted to see a recap of how I spent my holiday and the majority voted yes!
For Christmas day I spend it with my direct family. Sadly, my family was all sick this year. Nothing too serious but a head cold. To be honest I only had like four hours of sleep because I took medicine that kept me up the whole night. But bright and early in the morning, I looked my window the see one of my Christmas wishes, a white Christmas!
Then it was off to volunteering. In recent years my family has started a tradition of volunteering on Christmas morning. We go to this event with a bunch of children and get to take them on a bunch of fun rides, do arts and craft and then the event ends with Santa bringing the kids tons of gifts. It is such a rewarding way to spend the holiday morning, giving back to others. I had a wonderful time getting to make Christmas special for others.
After volunteering my family headed back to my house. We exchanged the gifts that we had bought for one another. This was one of the first Christmas’s that I bought a ton of gifts for my family members. It was so much fun to buy gifts that I knew they would love and use. We then made a nice seafood dinner for us and enjoyed it and talked about what we were grateful for. To finish the night off we ended with another one of our family traditions. We play Monopoly every year. (Fun fact- I absolutely love playing Monopoly!) We got to enjoy some desserts and fun!
That is how I spent my Christmas, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I especially love giving back to my community and making someone else’s Christmas special.
I truly hope that you spent your Christmas filled with love and joy. I am curious to hear about how you spent your holiday? Do you hang out with your extended family or do you just spend the day at home relaxing? Let me know in the comments!
