We go to my mom's house for dinner and opening gifts. We get there around 5 or 6 and stay until about 11. I usually prepare 2 cookie trays for my mom and brother and take up as well as some other dish to add to the dinner. Then we like to load all of our gifts around the tree, take pictures of them, eat and enjoy each others company. Then we put on A Christmas Story to play in the background or some Christmas music and then we tear into the gifts. We usually bicker about who's gonna record because everyone hates to use the camera.

We celebrate Christmas Eve the same way you celebrate Christmas Day, I think.
We open christmas presents after christmas dinner on Christmas Eve.
Santa Clause is also comming after dinner (eat at 5!), and after we had our walk and songs around the christmas tree.

I put out all our treats and eats...candies, chips, dips, crackers, meat trays, fruit trays, hot apple cidar, Christmas tea, coffee, cappucino, cakes, cookies...you name it...
We eat ourselves into oblivion. We normally have mexican foods that night for supper.
Then, we load up in the vehicle and drive around town looking at Christmas lights!!
Then we come home, take care of any last minute gift wrapping, kids go to bed early and get up even earlier! hahahaha
Lots of fun and excitement and anticipation!!!
Very fun question!
Can I come to your house for Christmas?? lol
My mom does the same thing... it is Awesome!
She makes everyone's favorite meal and I make everyone's favorite treats (I love to bake!)...
and everyone year we all make someone a gift for the Holiday's and we give those out after dinner on Christmas Eve... especially with everyone growing up and venturing out into the real world I hardly see alot of my family and I cherish every minute that goes by each Holiday season because you never know how many more there are gonna be.

My Husband works on Christmas eve so I am usually home with the children. My daughter (age 5) and I prepare all the veg for Christmas day dinner. Then, my daughter is part of the Carol service at the Church. Then it's home for Christmas stories and watching a movie maybe. Nice and calm here........
In the past I have had an 'open house' on Christmas eve with wine and nibbles provided through the afternoon and evening but we just can't afford to do that this year.

My husband takes a vacation from work the week of Christmas. So our Christmas Eve usually starts with Hubby taking our youngest daughter out for breakfast. She always picks Waffle House and sitting at the counter to eat is a must with her! LOL While they are out for breakfast my son and I finish our last minute baking and maybe wrapping a few presents. That night we a have snacks to munch on through out the evening. Peanut Brittle, cheese ball w/crackers, cookies, wassil and lots more. After we watch a Christmas movie the kids pick, then off to bed.

We attend a 3:30 family service, enjoy our annual Christmas Eve steak dinner, in a decorated North Woods atmosphere, & drive around looking at lit up neighborhood homes. Some of them glow peacefully & others are absolutely spectacular.
