not for Christmas Eve. On Christmas Day I make a full turkey meal with all of the trimmings (just like at Thanksgiving). I do that because my kids love it and because I buy an extra turkey at the grocery store every year because they mark the turkey down to $.19 a pound!!

At the mo, my Christmas Eve tradition is to watch The Muppets Christmas Carol. I love that film!

I really would like more traditions
That's our favorite movie,too!

We don't have a meal, but like Faithmom, we put out snacks (chips, dips, meat and cheese tray, Christmas cookies,etc) and graze while watching movies and Christmas Eve specials.

We don't really do anything special for our Christmas Eve meal. Usually just something quick.

We do pizza. It is our daugthers birthday on Christmas Eve so we let the Brithday girl pick and every year it is pizza. She is only 4 but the girl loves her some cheese pizza. It is easy to clean up, we have no leftovers. I will make a the big meal on Christmas Day.
