Christmas Eve has always been one of my favorite times of the year. As a child, leading up to it, we counted down the days with an Advent Calendar. Saint Nicholas visited us on the 6th and put a book and some chocolate coins in our shoes.
But Christmas Eve was all that and a bag of chips. This was the day we put up ALL the decorations. They wouldn’t come down until Epiphany. All of the presents were also opened up on this night, and then we attended Midnight Mass. In the morning, Santa would have arrived, and put little gifts in our stockings. It was wonderful and magical and memories warm me to this day.
Here’s to wishing your Christmas Season is as merry and bright as they were for me as a child! A blessed season to you and yours!
