    the way we make it, yes ;) me and mum just mix Advocaat with lemonade - we buy it from the supermarket, i actually prefer the really cheap one to the more expensive! it's like alcoholic custard! you can make it yourself, and without the alcohol i believe, but probably has raw egg's in so inadvisable if pregnant lol! we've been drinking it every week when we go for dinner at mums as i'm planning on not being able to next year ;) xx

    Yep, PJ's on xmas eve as well. We always take DS to see Santa and feed the reindeer in the run up, this year as it's DDs first we've decided to go on xmas eve to make it that little bit more special ... hopefully that will become our xmas tradition. DS and I are also going to make the little snowmen muffins in the Asda mag for Santa this year ... really looking forward to it.

    On christmas eve we get to open one pressie each :) This year Dec has a little postal game (from ELC) and Dan has a set of Top Gear dvds and a pair of liverpool slippers :) we get into our new jammies and play/watch our new gifts.

    Christmas day we have a traditional Turkey dinner with all the trimmings, then we have a little rest before we visit family :)

    christmas eve we put out cookies and milk for santa...then first thing in the morning the kiddos open their stockings

    we have breakfast Christmas morning...something small and light...this year it's blueberry muffins...then we open presents and put out snacks (deviled eggs, cheese ball, veggies and dip, etc) and around 4 we eat Christmas dinner

    Every year we have one present from Santa and it's always a tin of popcorn, a box of chocolates, and a new movie to watch together.

    New Pjs are a must for xmas eve!
    One pressie for xmas eve too, Gemmas is usually a dvd she can watch in bed.
    We have a takeaway on xmas eve too, watch xmassy films.
    Walk to cemetary on xmas day and then to feed the ducks.
    We open our pressies at Midnight on xmas eve, so the morning the kids can get stuck in to thiers without ours getting in the way :winkwink:

    I think it's cool so many do the pjs on Christmas Eve, I don't know where I got it but it doesn't seem as common here where I live so it's cool to see others that do it too
