Yesterday was my family's first Fake Christmas. You see, for the first time ever, my sister's not going to be with our family for Christmas, since her and her husband are going to California to be with his family this year. This is a real bummer for all of us (except Cheryl's husband probably) since we're quite close-knit and have always been together for the holidays. So, we decided to celebrate Fake Christmas this year so we could all be together for an almost holiday. And let me tell you, it was a wonderful day. There were presents, some delicious food (including macarons), Scattergories, and an absurd amount of laughs. There were a few moments where I nearly forgot it wasn't real Christmas, that's how good it was. It's lame to think that Cheryl's going to have to be with another part of her family for the holidays now, but it's comforting to know that fake Christmas is almost as good as the real thing, as long as we're all together.
Since we were pretending that it was Christmas, I wanted to wear a very holiday-ish outfit. This plaid blouse reminds me of wrapping paper, and red is one the most Christmassy colors there is. Oh, and you'll probably notice I got a haircut! I've been wanting to go pretty short for a while, and I'm happy I just did it. I mean, it's all nice and styled from the hair-salon still, and will probably never look like this again, but I'm hoping it'll look just as nice au naturel.
Today's holiday question: Are you done with your holiday shopping? Thankfully I'm all done, and quite pleased with the gifts I got for everyone. I always like finding gifts that I think my family and friends will really appreciate, and I was able to get most of my gifts from etsy and everything.
