For most families Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are a beautiful time to be with relatives and carry on family traditions. My family thrives on traditions, especially on Christmas Eve.
We always go to a candlelight church service followed by a formal Christmas Eve dinner. in fact last night, My daughter said to me after church, "Nows it feels like Christmas."
This started by my grandmother, then passed on to my mother, and now I carry it on in my own home.
Here is a picture of the dinning room ready for Christmas Eve dinner.
