My Christmas Day



 
Well here in Australia it is Boxing day aka the day after Christmas Day, don’t ask me why the 26th is called Boxing Day I don’t know it just is……………..lol

Anyway my Christmas Day was awesome I had a great day, spent it with my family I was awake at 7am and had about an hour or so before Jessica and Leo turned up, to open their presents. I think they both liked what I got them. Then around 10am we headed over to my parents place where we opened more presents in fact it is a little crazy at mums place with lots of people exchanging gifts and what not………………..lol

Tim was surprised with a couple of his presents, and I did well here are some photos of my gifts and my day.  The only drama of the day was when my brother in-law Ed cut his finger while slicing the ham, Ed is a big help on Christmas Day he slices all the meat for mum most of it is done using the meat slicer mum has but the ham he was doing with a knife. He had only just sharpened the knife moments before cutting his finger; I was talking to him when he did it.

This year it was a wet Christmas Day so we couldn’t set the tables up in the carport, which to be honest didn’t bother me at all I prefer to eat in the lounge room it feels more like Christmas even if it is a bit crowded…………..lol 

There were only 12 adults and 5 children there this year for lunch but before lunch there were 19 adults and 8 children some didn’t stay for lunch. Jeannie has lunch with her boyfriend Peter and his family and my sister in-law Leigh goes over to her mums for Christmas lunch and my brother Dave joins her there after lunch.

  9. I had just looked up the history of Boxing Day this morning for something in my posts. This was a day in history that employers gave their servants and tradesmen, little tokens in little boxes to show their appreciation.

    It looks like you had a nice Christmas. We did as well. Hopefully the cut wasn't a bad one for Ed.

    1. Ed is a tough bugga and said his finger was just fine, although when he changed the bandage it started to bleed again but he just shrugged it off.

  10. The Hurricane says boxing day is an English thing. The nobility would take gifts to the poor people. The gifts were in boxes.

    Love,
