Merry Christmas!

Hiya guys!
Merry Christmas! I can't believe it's this time of year already. 2012 has been such a full year, what with the Olympics and the jubilee (not that the second is a particularly big deal to me!!!!). I absolutely love Christmas- it's my favourite holiday of the the year. It's better than birthdays because everyone is exited rather than just you and you get time off school. Yep, most of my celebrations are about not being at school. You get to see all your family at Christmas which is good fun, and of course presents are always a good thing! I am a non religion so the religious aspect is nothing to do with it for me- its just a good excuse to celebrate! Christmas tv is amazing of course; I <3 Miranda, Outnumbered and Doctor Who!
 My Christmas routine is:
Wake up- this could be any time between 3:30 am and 6am. I can't help it, I get so exited!
Open stoking- I can do this without waking up mum, this buys her an extra 30 minutes or so of sleep!
Wake up mum- best done whilst offering a cup of tea.
Go downstairs- make yet more tea, including one for oneself. Stay awake by eating chocolate from stocking.
Open sack of presents- a Christmas tradition of ours is that mum doesn't give us big presents. Instead we get a big sack full of little presents. It's better that way.
Phone people- say merry Christmas, what did you get? Etc. etc., lovely thought but not the most fun in the world.
Open other presents- this takes my brother and sister 10 minutes max. And it takes me and mum about 2 hours. We believe in enjoying and savouring opening presents!
Enjoy presents- sort of the most fun part of the day, you have the fun of eating too much chocolate and reading.
People start to arrive- craziness, but loads of fun. My crazy family say happy Christmas and we all get very overexcited together!
Christmas dinner- BAM! Goes my vegetarianism, fake Xmas dinners are yuck!
TV- this can last a very long time, however if anyone has got a gadget people won't be talking and will be internetting.
Then there is no plan for the evening, at all.

Here's what I got for Christmas, present-wise this has been a very good year, I am soo lucky!
iPad- to share with Mabel and Arthur, that is actually what I am writing this blog post on. How cool is that?!? It's the 4th gen with retainer display.
Kindle- I love my kindle, it means I can read and be on a gadget simultaneously, my idea of heaven. Also, the books are super cheap, I got one for 75p!
Radio- I have needed one for ages ever since my CD player broke, it has dab and an iPod connection!
Books- lots of different types. Now I can read forever, mwahahaaha!
Clothes- well, duh. I am a girl!
Other bits and bobs: pens, vouchers, speaker etc, etc.

What have you got for Christmas this year? Anything truly amazing? If so, I'd love to here about it! Please tell me in the comments!
