An Orfila Christmas…

So, yet another Christmas has been celebrated…! It’s crazy! To think it all began months ago when we were sat in a restaurant in London and they started playing Christmas songs and we were saying how far away Christmas was… It’s mad how quickly it comes around!

Christmas is so special to us Orfs, as I’m sure it is to you too. It’s a time for family and close friends to share special moments and make some very special memories that will be treasured forever.

We have our own traditions at Christmas and have celebrated it in the exact same way every single year since I can remember. I am pretty sure it will be the same until the first of us, either Matt, Abi or I, gets married and decides it’s time to create a Christmas with our own little people!

Christmas has always been magical since I can remember. The whole build up… writing letters to Santa Claus, school Christmas musicals back in the day, choosing and purchasing a Christmas jumper, playing all the classic Christmas songs, doing Christmas gigs (as of the last 7/8 years), putting the decorations up (the sparkly lights are always my favourite part), going to Christmas parties, going to see all the Christmas lights, buying presents, wrapping the presents, seeing family that I haven’t seen all year, going to church, eating lots of yummy food… The list goes on and on! It really is the most wonderful time of the year!!!

Santa was good to the Orfs again this year. Between us we got a banjo, a new guitar, an accordion and a caj√≥n (percussion box!)… We are so lucky and so so so grateful! This year there is going to be even more musical-madness!

I hope you all had a lovely time!
