Snapshots time! For Billy Idol Day, James decided to cook a massive feast. It was so huge it had to come out in courses because it didn’t all fit on the table. Like he bought a turkey that weighed more than Lottie. Seriously. We ate turkey for so long after that it was ridiculous.
Any way I promised to explain the concept behind Billy Idol Day in the simplest way possible so here it is…
I don’t like big holiday celebrations, James was used to having big holiday celebrations… we compromised by agreeing to celebrate something we were both totally into: Billy Idol. Because he rocks. Also he did the most awesomely terrible Christmas album, complete with hilariously awesomely terrible music videos. And it kind of grew on it’s own from there. We did it a little bit bigger each year and now Billy Idol Day is our own little family tradition.
Hopefully that answers that!
We bought our first real tree this year, his name is Billy… or William if you want to be more formal.
Of course I had to find him appropriate sized lights.
I used some really cheap crappy washi tape to make some wall decorations! I’m excited by this because now I can do things on this wall without worrying about the paint!
We saw some cute decorations this year…
And some really disturbing ones…
Ate a lot of chocolate…
Got our tree topper printed.
And we even got to see Chrissy and Charles (though this was a little after Billy Idol Day!
Lottie was highly excited to get her present…
I put fairy lights everywhere this year 😀
Then it was down to cooking… or rather it was down to James making the turkey do some kind of inappropriate dance >_>
We had recently been to Vue De Monde with Celina so we decided to continue the experience by calling our restaurant Vue De Quartier or “View of the neighbours” according to google translate XD
We spent most of the day cooking.
And then it was time for the EATING!
Oh my god the fooood.
James invented themed cocktails with candy canes.
The candy canes melted a bit because of the heat but still yummy!
And the turkey!
This was James’ first time cooking a whole turkey and it was sooo good.
He got a bit drunk from the power.
I’m not really sure what’s happening n this photo but I’m assuming that there was some kind of bitchy retorting going on XD
James enjoyed his new present: a fan with a spray bottle attached.
And that was our Billy Idol day this year! It was exhausting but so much fun. We ate wayyy too much food and it was delicious. Boxing Day was spent mostly in a food coma!
Now I need to go sit on a bag of ice because the heat wave we’re having at the moment is absolute murder without air conditioning! ;_;
