Day 359
Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve kicks off a series of holiday traditions. Some are ancient practices with a modern spin, while others date back hundreds of years. Christmas Eve is filled with both religious and nonreligious traditions. Is there a tradition you enjoy? Maybe your holiday looks different this year and a new tradition is in order?

Here are few suggestions from the National Day Calendar:

  • Attend church for a candlelight service or Midnight Mass
  • Read the account of Jesus’ birth from the book of Luke
  • Put out milk and cookies for Santa
  • Pass out Christmas cookies and other goodies to your neighbors
  • Host an ugly Christmas sweater party
  • Gather around the tree with your family and cups of cocoa and share favorite holiday memories
  • Go caroling in your neighborhood or at a senior center
  • Make a gingerbread house
  • Hang up Christmas stockings
  • Read Christmas classics like The Night Before Christmas and A Christmas Carol
  • Watch a fun Christmas movie like Elf, Home Alone, or The Grinch
  • Rent a limo and look at Christmas lights

The last one is our family favorite...minus the limo ;)
