Christmas Eve traditions


Do you have any Christmas eve traditions that you do every year?

We don't usually have anything planned for the daytime but in the evening we usually watch a Christmas film and we will put the mince pies out for santa

Ah that sounds fun
We go to a crib service in the evening. In the day we just watch films and eat rubbish! Always have sausage rolls and ketchup for lunch on Christmas Eve too. Then evening is films and put the presents out when all the kids are asleep

When we were children we used to always go to my Nan's on Christmas Eve up until I was about 25 but there ended up being too many of us so that tradition stopped

We now go to DH's parents Christmas Eve as they live down by the coast as we go there for Christmas Day - we started a tradition of leaving out stuff for Santa last year and this year I am adding the Christmas Eve box

Otherwise not sure really

As a child the only tradition was gettig new pjs, i always remember my nan being super busy cleaning and prepping so i always try to make the effort to.do things with the kids. I try to get all my cleaning done the day before xmas eve then just have a general touch up on xmas eve (dishes, hoover, new bedding)
On the morning we have our north pole breakfast to say bye to the elves and we also get our xmas eve box.
In the afternoon were going to go to wetherspoons for some early tea and then come back do baths and pjs on and watch films. Then we sprinkle our reindeer dust and leave out stuff for santa/reindeers and hopefully the kids will be in bed for a reasonable time.

I do an Xmas Eve box, which will have in polar express dvd and the night before Christmas book, which we've always watched and read on Xmas Eve.

It'll also have the reindeer food to sprinkle and Santa's special plate and cup for his mince pie and milk. Although this year DD said we should give him beer 😂

I've got an xmas sticker/activity book for DD, so we'll probably do some of that together.

No other plans really, but we'll be at the in-laws, so not sure what they'll have planned.

We just have a fun day usually indoors.

North Pole breakfast, games, DVDs, Christmas Eve box and then I always make some little snacks bits like sausage rolls etc.
Usually let them open one present (usually from a friend or distant relative).
When kids are in bed we get out all the presents/set up santa gifts etx

We have my parents, brother and SIL, grandmother and Aunt and Uncle over to our house where we all get chinese take out (YUMM) and listen to Christmas music, then have some drinks while the kids open their christmas even boxes or new jammies, watch Christmas films, put out cookies, milk and carrots for reindeer, then off the bed K goes. J helps us set everything out if he's home, and we chill... I go to bed but can't sleep Daytime is making cookies and getting last minute cleaning done.

We usually watch a Christmas film with the kids and drink hot chocolate etc.
This year because xmas eve is a weekend we can actually do something during the day, so we booked our santa visit for xmas eve at the farm kids will get some new pjs for wear to bed.


once the kids go bed I have my own “traditions” we listen to Frank Sinatra’s Christmas hits (on vinyl of course) drink hot chocolate and then watch it’s a wonderful life!
