The girls get their Christmas Eve box usually in the morning as I normally put an activity in there for them but if they’re at their dads in the morning they get it as soon as they’re back.
Then we always do bath, into new pjs then hot chocolate and a film before a Christmas story then bed. Once the kids are in bed I usually pour a glass of wine and make the white chocolate and baileys cheesecake for Christmas Day (I make one every year). Then we get all the presents out.

We normally go to my parents for the morning if my OH is working and we make cookies for Santa.
This year I'm working so we're making the cookies the night before and I'll make sure my cleaning is done by the Friday, so just a quick Hoover etc on the Saturday.
We normally have a Chinese take away, the kids are having McDonalds this year. Then it's bath for the kids, we'll watch a nice Christmas film then we read the night before Christmas book before they to to bed.
I'm gutted I've got to work this year but it's only 10-4pm so it's not too bad and I have all the excitement when I get home. I think the kids will have their Christmas Eve box before i go to work.

We always have a little buffet that we put out for lunch time and usually does dinner as well. We let the kids just pick at it all day. We used to have family round (hence the buffet as it was kind of a party) but people rarely come now. We have new PJ's and open a present. Watch a film with hot chocolate and have Christmas books in bed.
