Last-minute shopping, wrapping gifts, running around, and making plans. December 25th is surely the main event, but Christmas Eve can be a great opportunity to raise the enthusiasm right before the big day. There are lots of activities you can share with your loved ones on this beautiful holiday.
Here are some ideas that you can put into motion for Christmas Eve that will help you keep everybody entertained:
Dinner ideas for Christmas Eve
Invite family and friends over to your house to share this beautiful celebration. During this holiday, there is usually lots of cheer to go around, and spirits are high. For menu ideas, think about making a big traditional feast. This may include things like potatoes, roast beef, and peppermint trifle. Another good option is to encourage guests to bring a potluck plate to share. Dim the lights in the room and prepare yourself to enjoy a magical banquet surrounded by a candlelight atmosphere, delicious food, and people you love. Gather around the tree for post-dinner hot cocoa or cocktails, and let the mood for the holidays settle in.
Beautiful traditions for Christmas Eve
Opening up one of your gifts is always exciting. You can also read together a “The Night Before Christmas” tale right before bedtime or watch a classic Christmas Eve movie with popcorns and candies; kids will surely love that.
These ideas will help build up anticipation and prepare the hearts for Christmas Day. One good tip is to take note of your favorite moments so you can replicate them again for future holidays.
Fun activities for Christmas Eve
Have a sing-a-long with all of your favorite Christmas carols around the piano. If you don’t have one, you can always visit a neighbor and get the groove going. Something that is always magical for the kids is to bake a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies and leave them out for Santa with a glass of milk. This builds up the expectation! You can even buy some Bengal lights have some outdoors fun.
Play games on Christmas Eve
Set up some healthy and friendly competition that will include everyone. Divide your party into teams and play a holiday version of charades. All of the clues can be familiar Christmas characters, movies, or song titles such as “White Christmas” or “How The Grinch Stole Christmas.” Share some laughs and allow yourself a bit of silliness as you act around to make some sense with your teammates.
