Christmas Eve was spent at my family's house. We spent it with family friends that are basically like family to us. There was the best food. The BEST desserts. Games. Lots of talking and laughter. Confetti thrown in the air at midnight and sparkling cider toasting to celebrate the Christmas day. In Brazil, where we are all from, Christmas eve is always a big party with lots of family, friends, food, music, and celebrating at midnight. They even open their presents at midnight but we have gotten used to opening them in the morning now.
Later at our house we opened our stockings to each other. I was excited to get a warm fuzzy robe, pajamas and all the home alone movies. We popped the home alone movie and cuddled as we anxiously waited for christmas morning. I was so excited i couldn't even sleep. Little did I know i'd wake up christmas morning puking my brains out.
