    I was wondering if anyone's family ever dances on Christmas Eve or Day. I was just reading about them doing it in 'merry olde England' and it sounds so festive...
    The holly's up, the house is all bright, The tree is ready, the candles alight; Rejoice and be glad, all children tonight.

    Are you going to have your buffet Christmas Eve this year?

    Christmas Eve is my favorite day of the year. It consists of me, my wife and my son eating shrimp gumbo, listening to great Christmas music and going for a drive to look at the Christmas lights around town. Right before we all turn in for the night, my son and I watch the first Futurama Christmas special. After my son goes to bed, my wife and I usually put out the presents (even though our son is almost 17, it's tradition) and then we relax in bed while watching either the Nutcracker or Christmas Eve Mass at the Vatican.
    It's just a fun, quiet evening for the three of us.

    We have been spending it with my only sister for at least the past few years. We listen to some Christmas music, enjoy some homemade cookies and goodies, sometimes watch A Christmas Carol with George C Scott, but more often not, but we always sing Christmas carols together. My BIL can harmonize with anything. After everyone is in bed (which can be very late, since everyone is at least 18,) my sister and I fill stockings. And, of course, we sit and talk and stare at the tree, lol. Sometimes we play a game, like maybe charades or balderdash
