Growing up, Christmas Eve was never really celebrated like Christmas Day… We would visit Grandparents and head home to go to bed early, thinking Christmas morning would come faster if we were sleeping. The on Christmas morning we would take time to remember what Christmas is all about.
As Ray mentioned, I was a bit baffled by the new traditions I married in to…
Now, on Christmas Eve, I look forward to putting all my little kiddos in their pajamas, slipping on my slippers, making hot chocolate, and sitting around the Christmas tree to hear the story of how Jesus was born in a stable, as the Savior of the world. After the full story is read from the book of Luke, we exchange gifts (leaving a special one for Christmas morning, at my request) and thank God for the many ways He has blessed us.
