I like the christmas time of the year a lot. In fact, it’s my favourite time of the year by far. It’s nothing to do with the whole getting presents off everyone from your parents to uncle bob but it’s more to do with the mood everyone is in during the christmas period and the routine I follow every year, it’s always the exact same.
I left my apartment on christmas eve to head home for the holidays. As soon as I got in the door, my mother greeted me in high spirits and there was a hot meal ont he table for me (which was such a nice change from stumbling into the apartment and spending so long preparing a meal). After a bit of a catchup with the parents, it was off to the local for the traditional christmas eve pints. The place was jammed and it was great to see everyone in such good form, catching up with schoolfriends etc.
Next morning was christmas day which was great, went as normal; exchanged presents in the morning ( one of the benefits of having a job is getting your parents something that isn’t paid for with their money for a change) and then basically are food for the rest of the day and board games were played. I ate so much I even got a food hangover.
Stephens day was visiting family then off to the local nightclub for the annunal ‘remind yourself how terrible local nightlife is’ night. Much fun was at, way too much was spent and pretty sure I got into a fight with someone on the bus home over the ‘Horse Outside’ song by the rubberbandits.
The rest of the holidays will hopefully play out as per usual too; more food, munching through lots of books, few pints, general avoidance of study and even more food.
Hardy Bucks christmas special was full of win.
