Two weeks to go until the big day. I did a giant Amazon shop yesterday so feel a little more in control of the situation but I’m still feeling really lacklustre about the holidays. There are lots of reasons for this not least that my real life Christmas traditions will change this year. Neither of my children are staying at home Christmas Eve, only one of them is coming for Christmas Dinner and then she will be leaving to go to her boyfriend’s house. Boxing day is usually a huge day here for us…last year I had 15 people here and I do a huge cold meats and salads table which people graze on all day. This Boxing day it will be 6 people. I know as children grow up traditions change…they need to make their own traditions with their own families. I’m usually far more accepting of change but I am finding this one hard to deal with especially as there is a genuine prospect that I could spend huge chunks of time on Christmas Day alone for the first time in my life. I realise that is every year for many people but it will be a first for me and it certainly is affecting how I feel about the holidays as they get closer.
