2017 Advent Blog Hop
Here is is, only a week to go until Christmas Eve! This is a big day in our household as well since DH's birthday is coming up as well. Hello to everyone hopping over from Jo's blog and a Merry Christmas!
This year Jo's question is: How do you plan to spend Boxing Day? Do you have any traditions associated with this day?
When I was younger, on Boxing Day we would go around to all of our local relatives and see what they had received for Xmas, eat leftovers, etc. I had 2 sets of aunts and uncles to see and 5 cousins total, so there were always lots of things to play with. I don't think we did another big family meal with our grandparents since we spent almost the entire day at their house on Christmas Day. Some years my parents would go out to the Boxing Day sales, but not that often.
Now that I'm working full-time, and living in the US, a lot of times I've had to work on Boxing Day. I don't this year, we're going to take it off, so it will be nice to have a day to relax. Perhaps we'll think of something to do as our own tradition? We've already made up one for our tree and put it up on DD's birthday in November. She gets a kick out of it, so we'll continue as long as she's happy with it.
On to stitching! I'm sad to say I really haven't had much time lately, much too much going on in the house, but I'm still aiming to get a few things done for local friends and maybe DD's teachers.
However, I will get this in the mail and hopefully it will arrive on time!
I stitched this on Phlogiston by Chromatic Alchemy with DMC 4520.It was a fun little stitch and my first time stitching with the Coloris line. I think it was pretty easy to stitch with, typical DMC issues, and worked well.
I hope you all have a very Happy Holiday season, however you celebrate it! DD was very enamored by Santa this year. :)
