Christmas Eve is one of my favorite days during the holiday season. There is a fresh anticipation and excitement of what’s to come, both in the joy of Christmas and the birth of our Savior. Plus it’s just a fun day to spend together as a family before the activities of Christmas day begin.
For my family, Christmas Eve is spent at home together. I know that Christmas morning will be bursting with excitement and with young children, as much as I want our focus to be spent on the true meaning of Christmas, sometimes things get a little too exciting if you know what I mean! 😉
With that in mind, I try to keep Christmas Eve as intentional as possible with a few meaningful traditions that focus on faith, family and the spirit of the season. With the exception of going to church, we don’t leave the house. Instead we stay inside and spend as much time together creating memories and looking forward to the day ahead.
Depending on your family’s Christmas commitments, Christmas Eve might be the best day to incorporate some intentional, fun and meaningful traditions. Today I’m sharing a list of meaningful Christmas Eve traditions over on Young Wife’s Guide.
Some we currently do while others I hope to implement when the kids get a little bit older. Be sure to head on over to read the list.
What are some of your family’s Christmas Eve traditions?
