A lot of European countries have the main meal on Christmas Eve, and I guess the customs travel with the people. So if your family came from the countries that eat on the 24th, you might well do!

It's not too bad, we have different guests for both evenings and they always bring parts of the meals. Besides, the only thing I'm ever obligated to cook is turkey, and we don't normally have turkey for Christmas.
