An Awesome Christmas!
Christmas is always a great time for my family and I. It’s the one time of the year when we get to see each other and have a good time. My favorite part of Christmas is when it’s Christmas Eve and my family and I are at our Church. We have a great tradition that in the middle of the sermon, they turn off all the lights and they give us candles. We sing all night. But, while it’s fun, it is also torture. We stay there until like 10:30pm and I am dieing to go home and go to bed. Yet, I never go to sleep.
When we finally get home, we have to eat the big Christmas dinner and then hang our stocking and sing again. Then, when we finally go to “sleep”, my sisters and I get up and look at the presents. Mind you, they’re about 23 & 25 and they are just as excited as I am(13). I usually wake them up about 12:30 and once you look at those tons and tons of presents, you definitely don’t want to go to sleep. Then around 5:30 in the morning(by that time, I’m about to ripe my hair out) I wake them all up. My parnets basically lock me in their bed room while they fix everything so it looks right and they get some coffee. Then, when they finally let me out, I open the little presents in my stocking. Next, we all start on the big gifts, but I have to go extra slow so I don’t have to watch my sisters unwrap their gifts(which is also torture!). After we get done all our unwraping, my mom and dad do there presents. They always go slow but, we listen to Christmas during the gift unwraping, so I survive. After the gifts, breakfast, cleaning-up and, waking up, we go to my grandfathers and have another big breakfast. We all stay there until the afternoon, when we go home and check-out all our stuff and put it all together.
That night, we go to my grandmother’s house and eat a big dinner there. My grandmother gives each off us a big trash-bag size full of other gifts. So, we all get tons ans tons and tons of gifts. But, the month after December is my birthday, so…let’s just say that I love my life! :~)
