I always have my Christmas Dinner on Christmas Eve. Started to do this when my kids
were growing up so I could enjoy Christmas Day with them and not spend the day in the kitchen.
It always worked out nice because it gave the kids something to do on the night that's filled with anticipation. And the table always looks so pretty by candlelight.
And we love to go to candlight services at church on Christmas Eve.
Now that my kids are grown with families of their own, we still do Christmas Eve dinner but I have learned to stay flexible because things change over the years. And grown children need to start their own traditions with their families.
So if no one is here but hubby and I, we enjoy each other's company and focus on the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus and His gift to all.
