Christmas Eve Traditions to Start This Year

With four sleeps to go, we’re sure the cards are written, the presents are wrapped, the food is ordered and you’re free to relax before the big day (ahem).   We’re probably all guilty of getting swept up in the Christmas chaos without stopping to enjoy the festivities.  So here are some fun ideas for Christmas Eve to help you to de-stress, make the most of family time and create special memories for years to come.

Change Your Bedding on Christmas Eve

There’s nothing like clean sheets to give you a fuzzy, feel good feeling. It may sound like ANOTHER thing to do on the busiest day of the year, but if you spend 20 minutes in the morning changing bedding over to freshly washed sheets and pillow cases, you’ll reap the rewards when you finally flop into bed.  Add a cosy cashmere or faux fur throw as an extra festive treat.

Open a Christmas Eve Box 

This lovely tradition is growing amongst UK families and it doesn’t have to be expensive. Pack festive pyjamas, a favourite Christmas film, hot chocolate, hot water bottles and cosy blankets into a festive box and unwrap them on Christmas Eve.  Then snuggle down for a movie night together.  Sheer bliss.

Make it a Time for Giving

Why not spare a thought for those who are less fortunate this Christmas time?  There are lots of easy ways to get involved in charity work or even just let somebody know you care. Most supermarkets will have the facility to donate food or an extra gift as you shop.  You could give time to a homeless charity, bake some cookies and deliver them to an elderly neighbour or even invite them round for dinner. Christmas is a time for giving after all.

Attend a Christingle or Carol Service

Even if you’re not religious, attending a Christingle or Carol Service on Christmas Eve is a lovely way to set the mood for the big day.

Bedtime Customs

With all the excitement, getting the little ones into bed on Christmas Eve can be a struggle, so set some traditions that will help to signify that it’s time to get tucked up ready for Father Christmas to visit.

Prepare by tracking Santa via noradsanta.org to show that he’s on his way. As well as the traditional carrot and glass of milk, try making some reindeer food (glitter and oatmeal) to scatter in the garden, hang the stockings and then cuddle up to read a Christmas story to create calm before they drop off to sleep.

Merry Christmas from all at The Fine Cotton Company
