Categories: Lifestyle, , 24 Comments

It is six days left till Christmas Eve and I can’t believe how time flies really fast. We all love Christmas <3 there are so much good vibes plus good foods this season yay! I am so excited and I can’t wait to celebrate Christmas Eve with the fam bam. Time has truly come to put on our favorite Christmas Pajamas, wrap the remaining gifts while listening to my favorite Christmas playlist and drink my favorite hot Chocolate nearby the Christmas tree. Let’s make Christmas Eve memorable with my Fantastic Christmas Eve traditions; here are a few of my favorites…

6 Fantastic Christmas Eve Traditions

A complete make-over a.k.a Pamper time
Yes, an essential for me. I make sure I called my favorite Salons ahead of time (hair, wax, nail and spa) and book an appointment. I also like to have an hour of whole body massage for a total relaxation. #BossBabeMoves

Last minute gift wrapping / Shopping
I am sure you’re not finish wrapping all the gifts yet under your Christmas tree. Me too, but I am enjoying it especially when shopping online – Very convenient, hassle-free and I can browse all day and night and get the best deal on their websites. No need to deal with Traffic, long lines at the counter, etc.

Hot Chocolate Bar
I love the smell of Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate drink <3 the perfect time to have this is by watching your favorite Christmas movie with your family oh, definitely will not miss this on the 24th.



Christmas Eve Pajamas
Yes, we are allowed to open just one gift on Chritmas Eve and we know what it is – Super cute Pajamas. This year we will do the gifts opening on Christmas morning. I love looking cute for our Christmas morning photos *winks

Cooking Festive Foods and Desserts
Lechon (Roasted Pig), Paella, Sweet Ham, Barbeque, Pasta, Leche Flan, Fruit Salad, Cake and the list goes on…This post is making me hungry ha-ha: D . This year, I am going to add Ube Halaya and try it ( Read one of my subscribers’ comment that she will have this on their Christmas table and I got so intrigued with it so aside from my favorite Leche Flan, Fruit Salad, S’mores, Tiramisu, I asked my Aunt to cook one for me 🙂 ) Oh, these Filipino dishes & desserts are sooo good!

A Night of Prayer
After Dinner, we gather everyone and pray one by one thanking the Almighty God for everything – Be it trials or blessings. We should always keep in mind that everything that we have comes from him and that he is our only provider, let’s use it to glorify his name and his works in our lives. Also, in whatever obstacles in life DO NOT GIVE UP! God has a reason why it is happening and that he will get us through it. Keep the faith and trust HIM.

    A night of prayer
    Everytime po na sasapit yung Christmas, pumupunta kami sa church at nagpapasalamat sa lahat ng blessings na natanggap namin. Almost lahat ng nabanggit sa taas ginagawa nmin. Lalo na yung pagwrap ng mga christmas gift kapag last minute na.

    Wow!! Total pampering yourself Ms. Ayesha. For me, in the morning buying food to cook, afternoon cooking time, then attend Mass the salubong ng pasko in the midnight. Pagkain galing mass, eating time with family.. Bonding with them.

    Hi Ms. Ayesha thank you for sharing your thoughts on how you spent your Christmas Eve 🙂 I also love the idea of drinking Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate on that special day. Yayyy will try it! Anyway, I spend Christmas Eve at home with the whole fam! We don’t usually prepare plenty of foods on our table during Christmas Eve but the important things here is we are bond us one. And I think that’s the real essence of Christmas!
