we go to candlelight service at church (6 pm), then up to my mom's house for dinner, then we all open one gift. We make sure eveyone's stockings are hung up on the fireplace (adults too- with no young children in the family for several yrs, each person now puts one item into everyone else's stocking)(the stockings are all hand knitted by me- i started this when my son was born and added one or 2 a year until all family members had one). I usually put stocking stuffers in before i go home on CH Eve..and then we all come back again on Christmas day to my mothers house..but at different times of the morning,afternoon. all of this 'tradition' evolved over the last 20 years or so....but when I tried to change something one year, several family members got very upset and said but we ALWAYS do it this way!..LOL
