Christmas Tree Day

Photobucket
Yes, there is a day in my calender named 'Christmas Tree Day'. Although checking with my social media yesterday, I realised I am not the only one to have such a day. The day I look forward to all year round - I wake early and bake Nigella's Orange Morning Muffins, leaving the most wonderful aroma throughout my flat. This year the drinks were glasses of M&S Clementine & Pomegranate Fizz, finishing the day with steaming mugs of hot chocolate with marshmallows. The guests this year as always, are my parents who adore this Christmas tradition just as much as I do. And once we have devoured the muffins and fizz, we set to work decorating the tree and putting up some decorations around my home, with some Christmas vinyl playing along in the background.

A fantastic tradition! We are decorating our tree today too. Clearly special hot chocolate or something should be in order!

What a wonderful way to start the Christmas countdown. Surprising how we all have our special traditions when putting up the tree. The muffins looks good - maybe I should adopt that tradition!!

What a beautiful tradition, your decorations look wonderful and I smiled to see the glittering P amongst the tree branches :)
Our tree is bought but in the garden, a bit covered in snow now!
