Our Perfect Christmas Day

For me Christmas has always been a special time of the year but until the birth of my son It had lost some of the magic of when I was a child. Seeing the joy in my sons eyes has rekindled my enjoyment and has given me and my wife a reason to celebrate it with more gusto. Our son enjoys trains at the moment so trains are incorporated into my ideal Christmas. We would take him for a day to Devon Railway centre where he can ride on a wide gauge steam train and see Santa in his magic Grotto. With access to unlimited train rides and an indoor and outdoor play area it will give him plenty to do with his day and the cost wouldn't be that expensive at just £20. We have set up a small Christmas tree which we have covered in Christmas lights and tinsel. This weekend coming I am going to make paper decorations with our son and deck out the rest of the house. We have already brought his main gift a Chuggington box set which he will find under the tree on Christmas morning. For our Christmas meal as we don't have a very big oven I am going to boil a gammon joint in coke for two hours until it is falling off the bone and the plan is that we will eat this all through the Christmas holiday and hopefully it will stretch into the new year. For the veg I will roast potatoes in goose fat along with honey glazed parsnips and set these along side a nice selection of fruit and nuts to graze on. The thing that completes Christmas for me more then anything else is that I get to spend quality together with my family. I can't wait to see our son playing with his new gifts on Christmas day and as we are all film lovers I am looking forward to us all having cosy nights in all sat together on the couch watching movies with a bowl of home made popcorn. This for me comprises of a perfect christmas.

”Merry Christmas! This post is my entry into the Tots100/Argos 12 Days of Christmas competition.
