Living in a van – a Christmas to remember

Have we been doing Christmas wrong all these years?…

My family came to Athens. We spent Christmas day on the beach. It was the best yet!

Here’s what I don’t need for a good Christmas:

  1. Christmas crackers
  2. Television
  3. Loads of food, chocolate, meat and alcohol
  4. Presents, loads and loads endless presents
  5. To rush and stress
  6. The queen’s speech

The one hour Christmas preparation:

We walked through the markets of Athens and bought fish, vegetables, charcoal, wine and some glasses – a total cost of 30 euros.

Merry Christmas everyone!

My Christmas conclusion

A normal Christmas is way overrated. What do you think? Can you remember last Christmas? What about 2 years back? I can’t!

I’ve really enjoyed not being exposed to all the Christmas TV, annoying advertising, rushing around and presents no one wants. It has made my Christmas the best yet.
