Merry Christmas Everyone

As you all sit down to Christmas lunch I wanted to say Merry Christmas Everyone!

We have friends over today for a traditional English Christmas, even though we are in Germany, it is my husband and I’s 4th Christmas here in Berlin (5th but the first we went back to the UK) and we are really starting to refine our own traditions.

They start on Christmas Eve when we make homemade pizzas, make the dessert for Christmas Day (always Banoffee Pie, I will share my recipe soon) and then when the pizzas are done we put on our new pajamas and watch Home Alone 1 and 2!

On Christmas morning we get up and start the cooking by getting the Turkey in the oven and peeling the mountain of veg! Then we sit down under our tree to open presents before eating a breakfast of chocolate. Then it is time to get dressed for friends to arrive.

I really really love Christmas and get so excited about all of the details, especially the baking but now I cannot wait for next year already!

What are your Christmas traditions and/or what are you doing this year?
