You’ve wrapped the presents, put up the Christmas decorations, adorned the place with fairy lights and got the food in. Hopefully, your Christmas Eve is yours to enjoy and won’t require any last-minute work or rushing around. This year in particular, we might have to settle for a quiet Christmas Eve.
Here are some classic Christmas Eve activities to get you in the mood for the big day:
Watch a Christmas film
Settle down on the sofa and ignore any cold weather with a feel-good Christmas film. From funny to tear-jerking and nostalgic, there are scores to choose from.
Open a present
It used to be tradition to open gifts on Christmas Eve rather than Christmas Day, so you could always select one gift each to open.
Play a board game
There’s something about Christmas that brings out our desire to play board games together. Christmas is all about connecting when we can, so switch off the screens and enjoy the chat and laughter around a game.
Go for a walk
If you’re feeling cooped up or the kids need to burn off some energy, take a walk around your local area to see some Christmas lights. You could make it into a game and race to see who can spot different colours and designs.
Whether you’ve got some family over or you’re enjoying some peace to yourself, have a lovely Christmas Eve and embrace the feeling of calm that descends at this time of year.
