Christmas Advent Blog Adventure: day 24

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt

Welcome to Day 24 of the Great Advent Blog Adventure!  For today, the two topics I will explore are:

From the Christmas Postathon ( Christmas Eve tradition

And from the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories ( Share your memories of Christmas Eves gone by.

We have reached the end of my Christmas Advent Blog Adventure for this year.   Thanks again to The View from the Porch and to Geneabloggers for these great prompts!  I haven’t always been the best at answering the prompts, which is not surprising perhaps to those who know me from Daily Post Writing Prompts land.

And this is great – both themes align!  Our Christmas Eve traditions have changed over the years.  Mom liked going to church, so we would often do that (I can’t remember if dad went or not, recovering Catholic that he is) both at home and in wherever locations we landed for the holidays.  I am ok with the church thing at Christmas.  They always sing a lot and the candles at the end of the services were always nice.  Then, when I met Kevin, we did Christmas Eve with his family (dinner, gifts, plus church (mom came along with us)).   Those are my memories.  Now, I just look forward to a nice quiet Christmas Eve with Kevin and the kitties.

And now, some visions of Christmas present!









Just to note, the ornament below (made by Zombie Flamingo creator, Judy) is the cold and flu germs.  It’s a long story…






This is Carbon – also made by Judy, and also a long story!







And of course, Bacon!






And, Scrooge with Alistair Sim (the colourized version unfortunately, and not really true to the original story, but still the best version out there!)
