Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and we are excited! We wanted to share some of our favorite traditions with you all, as we prepare for Christmas Day.
1. We read The Night Before Christmas every Christmas Eve night.
This has been a tradition since the oldest Lumber was a tiny tot. We make it a point to make popcorn or hot chocolate and read this classic story together. If you’d like to own a copy of this beautiful book, you can get one here.
2. Ride around and look at Christmas decorations and lights
Get some hot chocolate and ride around your town looking at the Christmas decorations. This cute set up was spotted while we were headed to see The Nutcracker.
And you never know, you just might find a cute photo op (if your kids will cooperate, that is).
3. Get your elf on
We have a blast with our elves on the shelf. You could always read the Elf on the Shelf book or watch the movie. If you don’t have them, you can get them here.
4. Turn off all the lights and simply enjoy your Christmas tree
This is one of my favorite things to do, and it doesn’t have to be Christmas Eve. Just enjoy the peace and quiet and bask in the soft glow of the lights. This leads me to my next thing.
5. Read the Christmas story in Luke.
This is my favorite tradition. There is no Christmas without Jesus, and He is definitely the most important part of the Christmas season.
What are some of your family’s traditions?
We will resume regular schedule on December 26. Have a wonderful Christmas Day!
