Christmas Traditions (and the perfect last minute gift!)

Can you believe Christmas is only five days away. There are only FIVE DAYS until my eighteenth Christmas. Mind-blowing.

I thought I would go through a few awesome Christmas traditions, that I love.

  • Christmas Eve PJ’s: I look forward to getting adorable PJ’s for Christmas Eve, every. single. year. They are one of my favorite things ever. New pajamas in general pretty much rock, but having a cute new and matching pair for all of those awful, makeupless, bed-head, Christmas morning pictures is pretty awesome.
  • Christmas cookies for Santa… commercials that say Santa wants cheese or soy milk, or sugar free are lying. He wants cookies. Period.
  • Not sleeping on Christmas Eve: Even at 18,  I cannot sleep on Christmas Eve… I just can’t. Not sure why… I think I am still waiting to hear those reindeer on the roof, but at any rate I sleep for maybe half an hour and stare at the ceiling the rest of the time.
  • Burning the wrapping paper in the fireplace: It makes the fire glow in all different colors, and crackle and snap. Love it.

Perfect last minute gift:

Here’s the story, you forgot your friend’s gift, your bosses gift, someone’s gift… there is less than a week until Christmas and you are running low on cash. This gift can run from 10 to 20 dollars, or less if you happen upon some good deals.

What you need:

  • A Microwave Popcorn Bucket
  • 1 (or more, I usually pick 2 or 3) things of candy
  • 1 or 2 DVD’s the recipiant will love  (I usually go for one)

You can either use tissue paper or loose candy for the bottom of the bucket, and then place the movie and candy how you would like, wah-la. Movie night in a bucket. People seriously love this gift. I have done it for birthdays, Christmas and graduations. It’s easy, cute, totally customizable, and if you find a five dollar movie you like it’s only about ten dollars.

Here’s one of mine:


About Kiersten Nicole

I'm 21 year old girl, who has tried and failed to blog many times before... I’ve seen more blogs come and go than Lindsey Lohan has seen court dates. But, I’m back and here to give blogging another go. I am a self professed lover of reading, writing, and cookie dough (raw, I live on the edge). I am fluent in sarcasm and could probably fill a book with tweets under the hashtag #InnocentGirlProbs. I survive this life only by the love and strength that the Lord graciously sends my way. You will undoubtedly see posts about God. You will undoubtedly see posts about America,Chickfila, hot guys, conservative values, Texas, my unhealthy obsession with books, and whatever else comes to mind. You might see some sad posts, you might see some boring posts, and you might see this blog crash and burn.
