I will be spending Christmas with my partner’s family in Edinburgh, a place that is very close to my heart, having studied at the city’s university. I love the sense of ceremony and tradition that comes with the 25 December, and fortunately, so do they.
An easy, but not too late start on Christmas day will involve a decent breakfast, accompanied by champagne. There is definitely a sense of occasion to it, and appearing in an old t’shirt or sweatpants on such a special day feels inappropriate, so I shall be wearing a pair of Budd’s tailored fit silk pyjamas in blue. I have long coveted our Fox flannel gowns, and the herringbone edition in navy, sits perfectly on top. We normally have most things planned by Christmas morning, but there is fun to be had with allocating tasks and getting the ball rolling first thing – everyone has a sense of purpose and energy in the run up to lunch.
