What's the day before Christmas Eve called?

Posted on 2007/12/25 22:16:14 (December 2007).

[Sunday 23rd December]
Today was pretty much yet another day of shopping in the daytime. Having concentrated mainly on presents the previous two days, today was more focused on food. We ended up going to a total of three supermarkets - Marks and Spencer, Waitrose and Sainsbury's - because I wanted slightly different things from each one.

By 4 we were back at the flat, with bulging cupboards and a well packed fridge, waiting for Mum and Keith to arrive, who were going to be staying with us over Christmas.

In the evening the four of us went out for dinner at the tapas place just round the corner from our flat. I'd expected it to be busy for some reason, but there was hardly anyone in there. Still, the food and wine was good (as usual) nonetheless.
