Ways You Celebrate Christmas Eve

Simple Traditions We Hold Close

Whether you’re going to church for midnight mass, baking cookies, or eating Chinese Food while watching Arnold fight over the last Turboman doll, Christmas Eve traditions are one of the most looked forward to parts of the season.

We asked you to tell us your favourite ways to celebrate Christmas Eve.

Christmas Eve Mass

It’s no surprise that many people celebrate Christmas and their faith with friends and family during one of the many church services held across the region.

Feast Of The Seven Fishes

Okay, maybe most of you don’t actually eat seven types of seafood, but a fish dinner prepared in many different ways is popular and sounds delicious. The tradition stems from the custom of abstaining from eating meat on the eve of some holidays, Christmas included.

Opening One Present

Granted it’s usually a cuddly set of PJ’s, but being able to tear into that present before the man in red arrives is pretty satisfying.

Matching Jammies

It’s cute, it’s fun, perfect for morning pictures, and screams adorable!

Christmas Movies!

We’re all familiar with Elf, Rudolph, It’s a Wonderful Life, and Christmas Vacation. Here’s one you might not have heard of but seems to have a cult-like following, and many of you chose as your go-to. “Christopher The Christmas Tree” is an animated movie about a tree that has grown too big to be taken into someone’s home. But a big tree can dream. It sounds cute and worth checking out.

Baking Cookies

Santa is working hard tonight, and many of us feel that fresh-baked is the best way to tell him thank you.
