Christmas Eve was a nice night at our house. We played it easy by just having finger foods for dinner. We opened PJ's watched Luke II and read the Christmas story. The kids were so excited for Santa to come that they just couldn't handle it!
My favorite thing as a kid was listening to my dad read the Christmas story and watching the swirling shadows from the pyramids on the ceiling. We turned off all of the lights and lit all of the candles. It is a favorite tradition of mine that we have carried on, when we celebrate Christmas eve at our house. It is right that we celebrate the birth of our Savior during the darkest time of the year. It is his birth that brings light into this dark world.
