Christmas Countdown – Day 4

It’s all getting a bit crazy now – have you noticed the looks of mild panic on people’s faces, the queues in the post office, the general frenzy of it all? I kind of love it.

Today should be the last day for all those things you need to get out of the way so you can focus on the food.

  • Wrap any unwrapped presents – the last thing you need to be doing on Xmas Eve is wrapping presents.
  • Make an iTunes Xmas playlist – don’t get caught out on the day with the done-to-death wedding or the last significant birthday playlist.  This is a good job to give someone else if you don’t have time.
  • Begin prepping food that can be frozen – some things can be made now and frozen, eg pastry, stuffing, biscuit dough, stock. The more you can do ahead of Xmas Eve/Xmas Day, the better. Just don’t take risks with freezing – some things don’t freeze so well. Check before you prep ahead!

Do you like my frozen tealight holder? I bought these plastic moulds from an Asian import store, and wish I had a bigger freezer so I could fill my garden with them on Christmas Eve. 🙂
