Best Things to Do On Christmas Evedylan13217
The Top TenXW
I like this better because some people do get carried away and think it is all about the toys and presents and it's not it is about spending love, time, and joy with your family and friends.
I usually spend time with my family on Christmas day but sometimes on Christmas Eve as well.
That's the meaning of Christmas
Wow! I too do that on Christmas Eve. Today we are going to our cousins house!V27 Comments
We watch the film Polar Express every year, Absolutely brilliant! Love this film
I don't know if this counts as a Christmas T.V. show or movie but on Christmas Eve night I go and watch tsn year in review. Tsn is espn in Canada. Also opening one present on Christmas Eve is good but there is no use for voting for it because its at the top spot. Opening one gift is good because Christmas isn't about getting, you know.
I always watch a movie on Christmas Eve, as there are plenty of Christmas movies on to suit everyone. Watching a Christmas Movie gets you really excited and I find it helps me sleep. Most Christmas movies can be watched by the whole family.
Yes this is fun but don't get carried away.V23 Comments
Agree 100% It's all about Jesus being born into this sin infested world to take our place & save us from all of our sins. He is the only way the truth & the life. Your faith in him & him only has saved from all your sins. Your sins are truly forgiven go & live in this peace.
Do something spiritual. Read the bible, go to church, go to a play or show about Christ.
Christmas is not about supporting retailers it's all about welcoming Our Lord Jesus Christ into our hearts, minds and into our homes. Today 25 December we all come together from far and wide to celebrate Christ-mass. Give some time over to quiet reflection if you are not of a Christian faith. If you do embrace Our Lord into your family lives, I do recommend visiting a catholic church in your local village, town or city church...Everyone is welcome...hear the carols and listen to the Mass as the congregation celebrate this important festival. If you are infirm and cannot get out, I think one of the T.V. channel is televising a Mass. Happy Birthday Jesus. Come into every ones lives today.
"Go to church, read Matthew, Luke... remember the true meaning of Christmas.V47 Comments
Opening presents can get you into the spirit of christmas! Just to remember your excitement on Chrismas Day when you see that stocking full of presents. Also the enjoyment and rebellious feeling of opening a present early. That alone can get you excited, even if the present you open is well, not so good. If you still don't agree with opening a present on Christmas Eve, then just think, you're get a present early! always a good excuse
I love to do thing on Christmas Eve because if you have kids like me (little ones) this usually holds them over until Christmas morning. Pick a small gift that is fun but not a huge time consuming gift. Pick Wisely! Happy Holidays!
Every year we wait until after dinner and then we go get the gifts the neighbours gave us and we open that. It holds us of until the next morning when we can open all our gifts
How bout 3? I get around 15-20 gifts so might as well open ore than 1V35 Comments
It's always fun to track Santa!
I do this all day on Christmas Eve even though I don't believe in him any more
Even if you don't believe in him its always fun to "know" where the big man is on his trip!
I like to get on my couch and Pretend I'm Santa on my sleigh. I would grab a bag.V31 Comments
This really works I Listened and relaxed and listened to 3 Christ mas albums and I looked at the clock and it was 7:30 so I would really suggest every one to do this
I do this every year, brilliant, passes the time so much and before I know it, the family are calling me through for dinner. lol, great idea.
I listen to the Christmas songs all week and the week before Christmas I just love Christmas songs
So fun it gets you in the Christmas fun and the fun of christV14 Comments
I like to do that at home, but singing at strangers doors I'm not so sure...
I sing all day! On Christmas of course, in my mind I'd be singing songs like Jingle Bells and 12 Days of Christmas.
Very fun but sometimes it gets hard with two little boys
Singing Christmas Carols makes people happy.V9 Comments
We put out chocolate milk and some type of cookies that we (my family) vote on
Egg nog and a few cookies is alway fun to make with my little Angel
I generally leave out brandy, cookies and carrots for santa and his reindeer. I put them by the fire near the Christmas tree for when he comes down the chimney. Each year I leave a variation- sometimes milk or beer with the brandy.
We make cookies as a family and put them on our snowman plate and let Santa have someV15 Comments
For my family Christmas Eve and Christmas dinner are the 2 best dinners of the year - Ajkloth
The Christmas dinner is like the 3rd or 2nd thing best about Christmas
Yum :) Love the idea our family's doing the same. I love the steak Turkey and goose liver paté! Hope you like it too!V2 Comments
It's better to give gifts than recieve gifts,although we all love getting gifts it's better to give someone else them.V5 Comments
My favorite movies are The Charlie Brown Christmas and Elf, the kids especially love How the Grinch Stole Christmas too.
I love doing this. I always watch Elf on Christmas Eve, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a good movie to watch as well.
The Grinch Who Stole Christmas is the best Christmas movie ever! I've watched it every year since I was tiny
I like The Polar Express!V4 Comments
I always have a blast doing that with my friends or family! Sometimes I like to see the lights that go all out and beautiful. I usually do this every year with my family for some good memories that I can remember my whole life! I like to take pictures so I could show my kids or friends when I grow up and tell him the story al about it!
Where I live, the whole court house is lit up and TONS of trees around it are covered in hundreds of lights! Also, my city sets up something called the Valley of Lights you can drive through, and the have a Christmas Wonderland Light Attraction walk through!
I love doing this, one year my mom and I even saw a deer while we were driving around looking a lights. This is a great thing to do with your parents or your kids because it's magical to see everyone's lights. Especially the people who go over board with their lights.
Awesome I am doing that tonightV12 Comments
Its not that I like to do this because it gets boring because I can't get to sleep! It's just when your in bed staring at your empty stocking forcing yourself to go to sleep it's so annoying but then eventually after trying to do starjumps, rolly pollys and reading to try and get yourself tired your eyes slowly shut and your out in half an hour ;) its not normal
Because then you can wrap up the kids gifts and you can tell them that Santa is coming and you have to go to bed early so you can come and put your gifts under the tree
I live with a family of seven and 5 of that number is children! So as you can guess it's pretty hard to make them all go to sleep! We tried layering it but the younger ones complained that the older ones would stop Santa from coming and the wouldn't go to sleep until they came up to bed, so we scrapped that idea and decided to try this idea!
We would let them open up their Christmas Eve boxes and then we would buy previously a caldron and we would put it in the middle of the room with hot water and we would let each of the kids pour their packet of hot chocolate on and then read out a little letter that their elf on the shelf left and the letter would roughly say this.
and it would tell the kids that this was a special drink to make them fo to sleep and it would actually make them sleep!
What. People who know me know that I slept late on Christmas Eve. Till around 11-2 AM.V18 Comments
This is a tradition in our family. This is because we always bring over TONS of cookies to our grandmothers house, and it will be a tradition that never ends!
I love to bake Christmas cookies with m family. When I'm done I set it out for Santa to take.V8 Comments
I agree! People should spend less time fooling around and actually do what they like, if church is your thing great it may not be anyone else's but I do believe in doing what you love especially during the Christmas season so getting on out there is the best thing for you since the Brady bunch.
For me, going to church on Christmas Eve at about 7:00 is a great tradition in our family. It's so nice to go and see the church decorated and to sing Christmas carols with the church. Christmas Eve always ends up being so boring during the day, so going to church is something I look forward to.
Jesus is the reason for the season people! No way would you enjoy December as much if it weren't for him!
I am about to get ready to go to church on Christmas EveV14 Comments
I love doing this I always try and count the Christmas trees or drive to a really big hill so you can see all the lights
I have never done this but everyone says I should so I will try it this Christmas
I'm going for a walk with my half brother, stepdad and possibly my mum next week!
I love making cookies with my family and have a good laugh well were making them and when there's left overs we like to eat the left over cookie dough! Its always great to spend time with your family!
My family has made cookies at least three times and they keep running out but I just love baking cookies!
Me and my kids (8 years and 6 Years) make cookies what seems like all day on Christmas Eve we make 8 kinds and homemade fudge every year!
This is always fun. - RiverClanRocksV8 Comments

I think someone thought this was a list called worst things to do on Christmas Eve and added this
Great for one direction fans lol
No I hate one directionV20 Comments
Christmas Eve is the only day of the year that I let my children eat chips, dip, candy, cookies, and chocolate to their heart's content. To them, Christmas Eve is a very special smorgasbord.
I'd say have your kids do a Christmas program for your family and sit down at dinner and watch a movie! Happy ideas
Yeah! A great thing to do on Xmas Eve!
Can't afford foodV1 Comment
