We have kids who could interrupt living room action but the past few years I’ve put a small 4′ tree in our bedroom, it makes for nice (and flattering) mood lighting. We also usually put one or two sex related things in each other’s stockings every year (we open our stockings with just the two of us christmas before the kids get up).
The first Christmas Eve we were married. I had gotten a “Christmas bra”, red with lace, to surprise my husband with on Christmas morning. He was really in the mood for sex and I tried to play it down like I wasn’t interested because I wanted him to be wild for me in the morning. He fell asleep by the Christmas tree for 5 minutes, and when he woke up, he said he had been dreaming about my breasts! So he got the present a little early which was allot more romantic than the morning would have been. A special morning!
Christmas Eve, 9 years ago. Excellent session on the floor by the Christmas tree 🎄. We still view it as one of those “special sessions”. The lighting is unique, and we have tried to get some tree action every year since, though it is getting tougher as the kids get older!
On the floor near the tree was a staple during the B.C. era. (Before children.) Pure magic. It’s been a while, but with the kids going over to friend’s homes more and more, perhaps this year could be our year.
We used to be too stressed on Christmas Eve for anything more than dropping into sleep hopefully before 1 am. However, we made a conscious effort to be more organized, and now the late hours of Christmas Eve are more about us. We’ll “watch” a Christmas movie in bed before drifting off to sleep. I *highly* recommend getting a good CrockPot breakfast casserole recipe. It works wonders for removing a lot of Christmas Eve stress.
On Christmas Eve 14 years ago, we were eating chocolate and having wine in front of the tree, and it turned into a great night of sex on the couch in the glow of the tree. Ever since, Christmas Eve has been a night that we both look forward to having a special encounter. We’ve only missed one year since (I got the flu on Christmas Eve that year and we were both disappointed). We made up for it on New Years Eve, and sometimes other holiday “eves” give us an excuse to have a good time.
I’d love to (I’m sure DW would too) BUT it’s not gonna happen for another 5-10 yrs when the teens are out of the house. We’ve got an AWESOME area rug that is very enjoyable to make love on…BUT it’s only used when the kids are at school or at a sleepover.
