In my family, we’ve started a ‘new’ Christmas Eve tradition (new meaning it’s not something our parents did) of renting movies and ordering pizza. This is because, by Christmas Eve, I’ve worked hard shopping and wrapping gifts, getting the house ready, and I’m going to work hard on Christmas, fixing a big dinner. . .so delivery pizza and movies (family-friendly) on Christmas Eve give me a little break.
Our ‘tradition’ is going to have to change a little this year; having moved to a 'burg in WV that is so small that there is no pizza delivery, we’re having ‘finger food’ (summer sausage, cheese, crackers, sliced fruit, etc.) and renting movies.
Anyway, we are watching The Princess Bride and A Christmas Carol (the George C. Scott version) and dining on:
fresh sliced fruit
Also, my kids are allowed to open one gift on Christmas Eve, but I get to say which gift!
So, what is your Christmas Eve tradition?
