So I know the topic says to post what we did on the 25th of December, but where I come from, the celebration really starts on the eve of christmas. This year, I spent it with my in-laws, and it was pretty quiet but pretty close and fun as well
We had waaaay too much food for Christmas eve dinner, which is kind of a given for celebrations like these My wife also made an amazing cake for the evening!
It was a chocolate hazelnut cake, topped with Kisses and Ferrero~ After passing the time just hanging around and talking, we went to opening our presents~
I got some joycon grips!
And a swimming cap! Me and my wife have been getting into swimming lately as our main form of exercise, and I’ve been wanting a new one for a while these also have the same initials as my name, so that’s an added bonus.
With the eve done, and after giving ourselves a nice rest, we hit the pool on the morning of the 25th to try these babies out~
Fits pretty well, and I like that the shape doesn’t interfere with my ears with our morning workout done, just a bit of rest and preparation for the next event: the family gathering! It’s kind of a tradition to spend lunch on the 25th with mt dad’s side of the family… which is a pretty big family considering he has 6 siblings and such was our lunch
Waaay too much food again orz but yeah just usual family gathering of eating, talking, and some Smash with my cousins, followed by some more gift giving!
Picture is me with my dad enjoying our gift to him well after all gifts were given and goodbyes were said, we just retreated to a relaxing night with a light dinner and me and my wife watching some Durarara
And that’s my christmas celebration just the usual family stuff but it’s moments like this that I treasure greatly. Hope you all enjoyed your holidays, too!
