  212. Frances • December 10, 2014 @ 12:19 PM

    It used to be an insane affair, as my husband is French Cdn, so we would go to one of his relative’s houses around 7pm and wish them Merry Christmas and exchange gifts and stay until midnight to toast Christmas. Then we’d all pile into the car and head over to another of his relative’s houses for the Fete de Reveillon (turkey and tortiere pie dinner served after midnight) and then exchange gifts with the hosts and toast Christmas some more. By about 4 or 4:30am we’d be heading home and would just about fall asleep when my parents would call at 7am and expected us to be there to open gifts with them.

    Now that the kids are grown and most of those relatives have passed on, Christmas Eve is a rather quiet subdued affair around here now. Just the 2 of us and if our son feels like stopping in he will, if not, oh well, he’ll be around for Christmas dinner on Christmas Day.

  213. Jolene • December 10, 2014 @ 12:19 PM

    Usually do something outdoors, then come inside for waffles and opening presents. This year, we will be at relatives and will have our big Christmas meal. Listen to records and sip hot cider too.

We help each other cook dinner, and eat a massive meal (lol), once we’re stuffed we watch Christmas movies and laugh at my mum and dad when they get a bit tipsy lol. We used to open presents on Christmas Eve as that’s very common in Portugal, however, over the last few years we’ve begun doing that in the morning and adpating to this way lol.

    Christmas Eve is a little different at our house. We started celebrating Christmas on Christmas Eve when I was a small child – it started the year after I woke my parents up at 4 am and declared that Santa had already arrived and we needed to have the tree immediately.

    The tradition is now being celebrated with the third generation down and we have added a new twist. We gather at my home and have a waffle brunch. It means a lot of cooking and standing for me, but we love it and look forward to it every year now. Hot, fresh, home made waffles, followed by the tree, and then, later in the afternoon we have snacks and a light dinner.

    Christmas Day is spent with all the inlaw’s families.

  692. Mary Jane • December 10, 2014 @ 10:19 PM

When we were younger the evening included piano playing, carol singing and the occasional impromptu christmas pagent.

    We then watch our favourite DVD’s, namely ‘The Muppet Family Christmas” and “Christmas Eve on Sesame Street”. Prior to bedtime, the children put out ‘reindeer food” in our front garden. We then leave cookies and milk for Santa Claus in front of the fireplace. Just a note, our children are in their twenties, but just love our annual Christmas traditions.

    We spend Christmas eve with my mom. There are 26 of us in total starting the late afternoon with dinner, and then a early Christmas mass. Afterwards we do a Kris Kringle gift exchange game of stealing gifts and hopefully ending up with one that makes you happy. Drinks, music and laughter form part of the night. We also treat my mom extra special and provide her with gifts she deserves. It’s the best family day of the year.

    After returning from church I hope I will be able to sit with a glass of wine and reflect on happier Christmases of the past before my husband passed away and when the children still lived home. And a time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas and to be thankful that Christ was born so we could celebrate. To wonder in amazement the hardships they all went through that night so long ago all for you and me, that’s all of us. Remarkable. Enjoy this peace before the hustle of Christmas Day.

    A family tradition has been for 10 of us to get together for an early restaurant meal -early because most restaurants close early. Then church at 10:00 PM,This will change this year as my son and his family live 1 1/2 hr away which is far for my 2 1/2 yr iold granddaughter.

    Always with family and the kids were allowed to open 1 present which we picked and of course it was always pyjamas – but the nice thing is that they still carry on with the tradition but the style of pyjamas has changed 🙂
