What I Got For Christmas

January 04, 2016

I'm not going to lie: for a twenty-something, I get a ridiculous amount of presents from my family - and these aren't even all of them. Granted, there is quite a lot of them but seriously, these people are far too kind to me!

I know that not everyone likes a What I Got for Christmas/Birthday style post. Some people think that it's bragging or showing off, some people think it's overly materialistic and some people just don't see the appeal. For me this isn't showing off or bragging. To be honest, I could have gotten a whole lot of socks for Christmas and it would have been more than enough but I didn't. My family chose to spoil me and it makes me so grateful and happy. The real reason I'm doing this is because it's nice to remember some of the things that I got for Christmas 2015 next year too!

As I say, this is only a selection of my gifts as I got more clothes, sweets, tickets for Adam Hills and new yearly set of pyjamas! I know that I am ridiculously lucky to have people who like to give me a number of presents. Kami and I don't have a lot of money ourselves, nor do we often spend much on frivolous things, but to us Christmas is a time for family and treating them as much as we possibly can. So yes, it does seem like a lot and yes we ate more food than normal but it is one day that we all get together, treat each other and makes some bloody good memories. I'm truly grateful for that.
