Hi welcome back!
I can understand you starting to feel festive. It's only a few weeks till september and the shops start putting Christmas things out !
Christmas Eve is my absolute favourite day of the year! It is the climax of the season for me. Your tradition sounds very special, you are truly blessed .
My husband and two young sons age 5 and 1 spend the day to ourselves at home. I begin the day by giving the boys a Christmas eve goody bag in the morning filled with a few little treats and christmassy activities for us to enjoy during the day along with new pajamas for the night.
We watch TV specials and christmas films, bake cookies, listen to music, sometimes take a short walk and just have fun together. By evening we all get into our new pajamas and get cosy with a favourite family movie. Before bed the children put their santa key out and leave some snacks for santa and carrots for the reindeer. We put them to bed and read Twas the Night Before Christmas.
Once the children are asleep my husband and I sneak all the presents under the christmas tree. Then we have a couple of hours just to ourselves with a couple of drinks and watch the movie Love Actually
Then it's off to bed.......
