Here in Germany, Christmas Eve is the main day of Christmas. We are five persons (my husband, my son, my parents and me) and eating baked toast. After dinner we are distributing the Xmas gifts and are talking nad laughing. Our little son (3 years old) is totally excited about his presents and is playing the whole evening with his new toys.

Xmas Greetings

We don't really have any traditions for Christmas Eve, usually every year is different but it goes something like I get up at around 8, watch some TV then get bathed and dressed. When I've had breakfast etc and we're ready me and my mum do some shopping for things we'll need over Christmas while the shops aren't open. Then we come back and watch whatever Christmassy things there are on TV. In the morning or early afternoon my uncle and aunty would come to visit but my uncle died earlier this year so this Christmas will be strange without him . Then we watch some more TV and eat! Later in the afternoon my brother and his family usually come (unless he comes Christmas day or Boxing day). We sit around talking, opening presents off him etc. Then we got to Mass later in the evening. When we come home I open my new pyjamas, put them on and watch some more TV then go to bed. I then spend half the night either awake or waking up every 10 minutes . Christmas eve is always really good!

Hi everybody, I'm new to the forum. An interesting place, many fun topics.

Christmas Eve is very special to us. Our grandchildren are here, we all head to church to see the special play for children and attend service, after returning home we have the same meal my family did when they came from Europe. We'll generally open a couple gifts, my hubby reads "The Night Before Christmas" and we all try and remember the words, lol... or make up our own. Then the wee ones are whisked off to bed to wait for Santa. We generally hear his bells sometime during the night.. he's fast though, we've never caught him. The adults opens a few more gifts. Morning is fun with everyone running around, I make a buffet breakfast for everyone and we sit and enjoy each other's company. There's a lot of kibitzing that goes on among the adult children. A fun day filled with family and good memories.

My Christmas Eve is spent at my boyfriends parents house. His parents, sister, her boyfriend, and the two of us are there. We all have a part in making peanut brittle! 6 people in one little kitchen! Then we sit down and watch movies and talk while his mom cleans up all of our mess! When shes done, all the "kids" get to open up one of our presents. Around 10:30 my boyfriend brings me back to my house and he spends the night at his parents house. My dad works shiftwork and he always works on Christmas Day (hasn't been home for Christmas in 10 years) so me and my brother open presents either when Daddy is getting ready to go to work or either has just gotton home. My boyfriend gets up and drives over here to have Christmas with my family and them we go back to his parents house and have Christmas there.

Sorry this is so long!
