Christmas day

We have a tradition when it comes to opening presents, all the presents are put under the tree then the youngest person goes and picks a present, we read the label and then give the present to the correct person, everyone watches as they open their gift, when they have finished the next youngest person picks a present and so on. Sometimes this system lasts all day or it has even me known to last two days.
Ebi-kun got a complete outfit including a sword, shield and helmet but not a bow and arrow.
 Christmas dinner was lovely, not sure if my mom is sleeping or praying on this picture.
 Ebi-kun loved the Christmas pudding and resorted to licking the plate (allowed on Christmas day ;o) )
 Which thanks to Tom it ended up on his face
 Since the only thing missing from Ebi-kuns outfit was a bow and arrow, Daniel went rummaging in the garden and made one out of a garden cane, so Ebi-kun suddenly decided that Uncle Daniel was alright after all - kids are so fickle!
Christmas night ended with a lot of drunken adults playing quiz night, badly I should add!

  1. Love that tradition. We take it in turns each year to be 'santa' and hand out the gifts and watch each and every person open them, but your idea sounds lovely. :-)
