Christmas Eve Memories & Traditions
A few years ago, my daughter’s 4th-grade class learned the Christmas poem “The Night Before Christmas“. When we visited my 94-year-old Grandma that year, I was able to record the two of them quoting the classic poem.
Today, on Christmas Eve, I thought it would be special to reshare this so we can all enjoy it again! This video clip is special to me for several reasons:
- I love seeing the two of them working together to quote this lengthy poem.
- I love the fact that my kids and their great-grandmother have a wonderful relationship.
- I love the fact that we are able to celebrate together with my kids and Grandma again this year.
As I was thinking about Christmas Eve, I started thinking about different things we have done over the past few years. One year we took three generations through Lights under Louisville and Grandma led us all in trying to quote this poem. What fun memories we got to share during that long van drive as we waited in lines to see the Christmas lights.
Some people spend Christmas Eve going to midnight candlelight services, while others stay home and read the Christmas Story and sing carols. A few weeks ago, I received this new Christmas book called “Twas the Evening of Christmas“. What a neat way to celebrate Christmas Eve with the kids in your life!
Over the past few year, I have recorded several other memories from Grandma. These video clips are true treasures!
How do you celebrate Christmas Eve? However you are spending the day, I wish you the best of the season and pray you can remember the real reason we celebrate the Christmas holiday!
Merry Christmas Eve!
