Hey lovelies! Merry Christmas and happy New Year! Whoop whoop it’s 2022 and I’m super excited about all the good things coming my way this year!
I think I am one of those people who is more excited about Christmas than I am with my birthday. I’m only excited about my birthday when it’s a significant age. Spending time with friends, families, setting up Christmas trees and going gifts shopping are all the typical stuff that makes it’s exciting and special. Everyone comes back home from far and near to eat, drink, open presents and Merry Merry away into the Christmas vibes. It’s a very special different day compare to the rest of the days in the year.
Usually, we spend Christmas in my mum’s house with all my siblings coming home with their children and partners. However, this year was a bit different. We decided to visit my mum’s sister in London for Christmas.
25th December – CHRISTMAS DAY
Spending Christmas with my aunty was one of the greatest time/moment I will never forget. Spending time with my cousins, aunties and siblings made me realise how much family means to me. Family really is everything we have and can’t be traded.
We chilled in the living room with my aunties and cousins eating roasted potatoes, lamb chop, gravy and vegetables with a glass of champagne. We also played a lot to Christmas games and i wouldn’t have spent my Christmas any other way.
26th December – BOXING DAY
On the 26th of December I visited my Grandmother grave and that was my favourite memory of the year 2021. Visiting my grandmother grave on the actual day she died made everything perfect. I’m not the most spiritual person, but I definitely felt her presence. Personally, I’m scared of anything that has to do with ghost. Now imagine someone like me visiting a burial ground? If ghost are real, surely they were active on the day? Lmaoo 🤣
“It is the same way with the resurrection of the dead. Our earthly bodies are planted in the ground when we die, but they will be raised to live forever. Our bodies are buried in brokenness, but they will be raised in glory. They are buried in weakness, but they will be raised in strength. 1 Corinthians 15:35-55
After leaving my grandmother burial ground, we heeded to the shopping centre for some shopping as it happens to be Boxing Day and we were in London so we thought we might as well make use of the opportunity.
1st January- NEW YEARS DAY
On the first of January, I was in church until midnight. It has always been a tradition in my family to always visit church on New Year’s Eve into the new year.
Afterwards, I visit a bar with my friends and sister to go have a drink and was back home.
At 3pm on the 1st of January, I visited my twin sister house to go have some food and drink as we have decided we won’t be celebrating in my mum’s house this year. To be honest, not celebrating in your house for a change will make you realise what you’ve been missing out on. It’s makes the holiday less stressful, and you actually get to enjoy been taken care off by others. Lol.
We left my twin sister’s place at 7p and came back home. At this point, I was too full all I did was catch up with “EMILY IN PARIS” and went to bed lol.
Been back to reality does not feel right but let’s go get it!!! I hope everyone has a great 2022! And cheers to the New Years 🥳🥂
