  • We have a bedtime ritual on Christmas eve. We all get new pjs and slippers as a gift and we watch the Grinch, eat cookies, and drink hot chocolate. We then wake up in the morning to open the rest of our gifts.

  • Both. Christmas Eve we go to my grandparents and see the whole family, eat , and open gifts from family. When we get home we put out cookies & milk for Santa and let the kids open one gift each. Then Christmas morning they get to wake up to all their gifts and then we cook and have family over.

  • Depends on the year. We always do Christmas and sometimes will do Christmas Eve with my family (hubby's family is always there for Christmas day whether we stay home or go to his mom's house). This year we are watching A Christmas Story on Christmas Eve and I'm making a dinner to go with the movie - meatloaf, mashed potoatoes and red cabbage. (c: I love that movie and I'm really excited.

  • We do both. Midnight mass, then Family time on Christmas.

    Answer by onemellowmom at 11:50 PM on Nov. 19, 2010

  • we celebrate both...

    Christmas eve we go to my inlaws during the day until evening... we eat dinner and exchange gifts.. then we make the hour trip back home. We drink hot chocolate, listen to christmas music, read christmas stories and then bedtime for the kids, then my husband and I play santa and go to bed ourselves.... on Christmas morning I wake up with christmas music ( played all day ) and put the ham and other things in the oven. My parents, my brother, and my "mamaw and papaw" come over and we wake the kids up ... we open gifts which usually last around 3 to 4 hours ( we take turns so everyone can see everything) .... then we eat around noon and just spend the day eating and "playing" with our new things....

    that evening my other grandma has her christmas ( with all my cousins and aunts, uncles, etc) ... so we go there and eat and do gifts too
