For me, it's not Christmas Eve if I don't have a home filled with family and friends. I have an annual christmas eve open house, and if I don't have that, it will not seem like Christmas Eve to me.

Santa comes around our neighborhood on a local firetruck right after dinner time on Christmas Eve. The kids are always excited and strain to hear the horns of the fire truck. Once they hear the horn, they know santa is close by.

We have friends that have been hosting a Christmas Eve brunch (re. feast) for family and close friends which is always a warm and pleasant get together. Then, after evening mass it's just the two of us with our decorations, a nice fire in the hearth, our two foxhounds curled up in their beds, a cup of good cheer in our hands and the TSO Christmas DVD. playing on the TV and stereo.

Christmas Eve Mass, a nice dinner, candles burning and hopefully something on TV. It's the only night I leave the tree on all night.

Well, our Christmas Eve traditions have been tweaked over the years with marriages, deaths, births, jobs, but for the past few years:

It's not Christmas Eve if I don't... rise at 6 a.m., shower, then clean house & do laundry while watching/listening to NBC morning news shows. Gotta have a clean house because Santa is coming! In the afternoon, go to DH's best friend's house for gift exchange. At night, make cookies for Santa with DD & watch her spread reindeer food on the front lawn. Stay up until midnight, then help Santa put the gifts near the tree.

One thing I have done for Christmas Eve/Christmas Morning that I hope to never do again: take a toddler to the ER at midnight!

I'm the organist at my Church, so to me it's not Christmas Eve if I'm not playing services until 12:00 midnight. Usually, Hubby will show up for the last service and sit in the loft with me. And he sings all the carols, which I love. After that, we go home and watch the Christmas Eve service from the Vatican (what a beautiful Sanctuary they have!) and eat lunchmeat sandwiches and drink eggnog. Of course, we both get to sleep in the next morning, which is a great Christmas present in itself!

it's not christmas eve for me unless i watch a christmas church service on tv, either the 6pm showing or the midnight mass. it's so beautiful to watch and reminds me what christmas is all about.
