corner view 'traditions'

 Christmas wreath on our front door.

These are our little traditions at this festive feasting time of year.

Two Christmas trees

The big one decorated with just silver, glass and white lights.
The smaller one completely covered in every colour and style decoration you can imagine
(guess who decorates that one?!)

A box filled with Christmas story books that I hide away all year
and bring out on 1st Dec for bedtime stories.

Rudolph cuddly toys that go into the kiddos beds for Dec.

Lots of candles in the evenings throughout all the winter months.

Always scrambled eggs with smoked salmon for Huzz and I on Christmas Day morning,
with a glass (or 3) of Champagne to start the day off well.


For more lovely 'traditions' around the world, take a look at these Corner Views.

  11. All your traditions are beautiful ones, Victoria. I bet your grown-up tree is gorgeous and the kiddie one is charming.
    I love the idea of lots of candles throughout. I should implement that in our home, as well.

  12. This has made me feel all festive - thank you.

    We have similar ones. The only one to add is christmas CDs. My son currently only ever wants to listen to Away in a Manger on repeat at the moment. I love all the usual cheesy christmas tunes.

  13. hi - thank you for the "Christmas" injection, making me feel a bit homesick now!! Can't believe its on Saturday! Can't believe this time last year we were nearly with you and enjoying the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon - oh and some champers too!! Lots of love xx
