Christmas in England holds many traditions for our family…
Christmas Eve begins with a candlelit supper and the swapping of small gifts. This began when my sister and I found it hard to wait till Christmas morning for the first of our presents, and has continued now there are children of the next generation.
Santa also visits all ages, so we were also lucky enough to find stockings with our names on this morning. I love the idea that everyone is remembered in this way, with small, thoughtful items that don’t cost the earth. It’s always as fun to take it in turns to unwrap these little parcels as it is the larger gifts under the tree.
