Happy Christmas eve everyone! The day has finally come where everything is done, you’ve finished all your work and you’re ready to enjoy the big day. I think I might actually prefer Christmas eve to Christmas day itself, but don’t tell it 😉
In our family we not only have traditions that we follow on Christmas day, but we also have a few festive traditions which happen every year to make up the perfect Christmas eve. Firstly, we try to watch a festive film on Christmas eve – and it’s usually the animated films The Snowman & Father Christmas, and this year we will easily be able to stick to this tradition because there is a brand new animated film The Snowman & The Snowdog premiering on Channel 4 at 8pm on Christmas Eve.
We always have a bath or shower and we get to open our first Christmas present – new pyjamas to wear to bed, ready for Santa coming. And not forgetting putting out a mince pie and port for Father Christmas, and a carrot for the reindeer. And finally, I have to be in bed before midnight, otherwise I’m still awake on Christmas day and I just don’t feel right about that!
