a crafty vegan's 12 Days of Christmas - Day 12
Spending Time with Family and Friends
Clearly, this is what i was doing yesterday as i didn't get around to post! I love Christmas, because it means good quality time with loved ones. Even though J and i see our families throughout the year, visits typically are shorter and not as jovial. Maybe it's the opening of presents that makes us feel jovial, or maybe it's because everyone is together, or maybe it's because it's tradition. All of the above works!
Yesterday was no exception - we spent time with both our families, talking and sharing stories. I also love Christmas because it means spoiling and treating our families to gifts, something my parents especially do for me all year long. It's good to let them know i appreciate that and want to give back, as a way of saying thanks and i love you.
The rest of the week, we'll be getting to catch up with other friends and i'm looking forward to that too - some friends who i haven't seen in months and Christmas allows us that.
