What do you do on Christmas Eve? Here are two things our family has done for years and years.
Every Christmas Eve morning, we have this special, festive breakfast. (On Christmas morning we have an enormous cinnamon roll wreath/candy cane like my mom always made.) It's easy and fun. And yummy.
Every Christmas Eve we gather together to dress up, read scriptures, sing, and act out the events of the nativity. Years ago I wrote up a nativity script that makes it easy to incorporate the various scriptures and some hymns to go along with it.
When we get to the part in the nativity story about shepherds abiding in their fields,” we all become shepherds and have a simple, festive Christmas Eve dinner — sitting on the floor on blankets.
We have this as part of our Shepherd's Feast, but it's good any time when it's cold outside. And it makes the house smell wondrous.
Please share your Christmas Eve traditions!
