Once of my favorite tradition over the festive period is the Christmas Eve Gifts which are left from our Christmas Eve Elves. I adore Christmas Eve, there is something really special about the anticipation of Christmas Day and we spend it as a family as MadDad always tried to get it off. We make sure we are prepped for Christmas Day and can be found in the kitchen as a family for part of the day. I love the thought of making it magical and wanted to share with you what we do and how we do it!
Christmas Eve Sacks
New Pyjamas (so they look their best on Christmas Morning in pictures) I have even ordered The Pajama Elves book to read over the advent period.
A new family Movie
A family Game
A new book for bedtime
We all snuggle up and make cranberry and popcorn garlands for the tree at the front of the house as we watch the new movie. We go and lay a wreath on my Mum’s grave and as the sun starts to set then we wrap up warm and go for a walk round the local neighbourhood and look at everyones christmas lights before returning home for our snowman soup.
The last thing the boys do before putting out a pie and drink for Father Christmas is they sprinkle their Reindeer Food before going to bed with their new book.
We have the same Christmas eve tradition too…I have never done Snowman soup before…What a great idea!!
Kim Carberry » We give Snowman soup to the teachers and the boys friends too. It is inexpensive and so much fun

Lovely traditions. We always have a buffet tea which we can pick from and eat in front of something Christmassy before heading the bed.
Purplemum » Oh yes, we have a “picky” dinner too. It is a real treat.
