What things do you do every year that really make it christmas for you? DH, DS and I are having xmas dinner at our own house for the first time this year (still seeing both families first!) so it feels really special this year.
My only traditions are new PJ's and lighting a candle on xmas eve but as DS is nearly 2 he can join in more this year- share your christmassy traditions with me please!

oops! missed that one blush can you link please?
TW, you must be very organised to do this on Dec 1st! I am usually frantically trying to get a tree about Dec 20th!!
