Christmas Writing Prompt #1 – Last Christmas

I am trying my hand at a couple of December/Christmas-lead-up challenges this year.  I just posted my first Christmas Countdown post, and now I am looking at the Christmas Writing Prompt (at https://ourrandomview.wordpress.com/2016/12/01/christmas-writing-prompt-1-last-christmas/).

So, for day one of this challenge, we are asked to cast our minds back to last Christmas and share memories from it:

  • Who did you spend it with?
  • What did you watch on TV?
  • What games did you play?
  • What gifts did you give and receive?

Oh man.  Here we go with the memory again.  Last Christmas, eh?  Well, I know I spent part of it with Kevin… I also remember having Christmas breakfast at mom and dad’s, where we would have opened our stockings.  Then Kevin and I likely went home to open presents from his sister and our friends in North Van.  Mom and dad and friend Darca then came over for dinner.  I think we probably made a roast, that mom would have picked up, and lots of vegetarian dishes since Darca is vegetarian.  We may have watched a movie as well.  Perhaps last year was when we watched Alice at the Palace on YouTube?  Oh, man.  I just don’t remember!  Ok, maybe my resolution for the coming year (and perhaps starting now) needs to be journaling my daily adventures!!

Hey, what do you know?  I was right!  At least about the Christmas breakfast, and a roast for dinner!

  1. I love how the table is laid out in the last pic with all the candles. It has a magical classical sort of feel to it and makes me want to eat dinner by candlelight.

  2. Your Christmas day last year sounds lovely, and very pretty photos. 🙂 Is this and the other post about Dec. challenges the ones you mentioned? I will give them a try. 🙂

  3. Aww, very nice, Emily. Your dining room table is so warm and inviting, I love that. Blessings to you and your family for Christmas this year! ❤

  4. Heck, I don’t remember yesterday, let along almost a year ago! 😀
