Outfit: Christmas Eve



Georgia Rose red booties

Christmas Eve dawned dull and rainy so we stayed in the house for most of the day. Mid-afternoon the young man went off to meet his mate for their traditional Christmas drinks. I enjoyed Carols From Kings (that’s Kings College, Cambridge University for those of you not in the UK) on the radio (I’m still disappointed that they don’t show it live on TV anymore) with a large mug of hot chocolate. Did you know that the choir boys don’t know who will sing the first verse of Once In Royal David’s City until they are all in the back of the college chapel? They all learn the solo and then the choirmaster points at one of them and says ‘You do it’ and that boy has to just start singing. They all know it’s going out live on the radio and would get too nervous if they knew in advance it was them singing.


In the evening I picked up the young man’s mum and we went to church for the Christmas Eve service. It was an epic production by the Youth Club and Junior Church: Christmas seen through the eyes of the decorations on the Christmas tree. We sang ‘It Was On A Starry Night’, which I don’t think I’ve sung since Middle School, and Abba’s ‘I Have A Dream’, which was just random, but it was a fun service with a nice twist at the end when the collection boxes came round and everyone took a chocolate coin out instead of putting money in.


After church I went and joined the young man and our friends in the pub for a festive drink and then we headed home.
