    We stay at my parents and we have a have a curry,it's what my son always asks for to have for dinner Christmas Eve since he was 2.
    We sprinkle magic reindeer dust on the lawn and leave Milk and Mince Pies out for Father Christmas and a carrot for Ruldolph and place our sacks on the sofa.
    Then i read my son the night before Christmas.In some ways i love Christmas Eve more than the actual day,it's magical.

    Normally I would be at my parents, but this is me and Mr Boofs first xmas together. We will probably cook a nice tea, have some wine, watch a movie, and maybe open a little present before bed! x

    Pray that the kids go to bed earlier than 11 p.m. so that I can set all the presents up under the tree. LOL

    This year my stepkids are over that night so my kids will be up late, and so will I.

    Honestly, we don't have a tradition per say and pretty much relax. The kids get to open one gift before bed. This year it will be their new bedding they will be opening :)

    However, this year I don't have to worry about preparing for a Christmas meal as my MIL is hosting dinner this year. :happydance:

    We usually have something incredibly yummy to eat, sometimes we go to church, sometimes not. We go visiting my aunt and my parents best friends, then come home and usually watch The Santa Claus. We also have magical reindeer food, and Renah'll be going to bed and I may have more than one drink :D

    Since I outgrew santa we do a bunch of appetizers as dinner while we sit around the fire and we open all our gifts christmas eve night. We'll do it this year too since we'll be at my parent's house while I recover from my c-section (so DH can keep working and my parents can help me). Next year though Kathryn will be old enough to know what Santa is so we'll be starting a new tradition then :D

    I have no idea what we'll do. Hubby reckons getting a takeaway on xmas eve is mental but I'm going to try and talk him round. I'll get a shower hopefully (if the growth spurt hasn't hit) and we'll watch all the tv nonsense.
