Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories - Day 10 - Christmas Traditions

This series of blog posts has been inspired by Geneabloggers Advent Calendar to share memories for others in the future.

I do not feel that I have many Christmas traditions now but as a child we had traditions although I have not kept many.

Christmas traditions we had as a child are:

  • eat turkey with vegetables (inc sprouts & parsnips), potatoes, pigs in blankets, stuffing, bread sauce, Yorkshire puddings and lots of gravy with Christmas pudding or Christmas cake for dessert
  • watch Queen's speech at 3pm
  • play a board game or two
  • spend Christmas day with my maternal grandparents
  • go out for a Christmas day stroll
  • go to church Christmas morning
  • go to a Carol service at some point in the lead up to Christmas
  • open our presents on Christmas morning

Christmas traditions I like to keep:
  • eat turkey roast as above (but this is dependant on who's cooking)
  • play a board game
  • spend Christmas with family members
  • go to a Carol service
  • open our presents on Christmas morning
