Christmas Eve - A Very Special Night at Our House 

When I was a kid our family always opened their Christmas presents on Christmas Eve. I was really surprised when I grew up and found out that most people did it on Christmas morning! I'm not sure why my parents chose to always have us open presents on Christmas Eve, but I 

suspect it was because - with four boys in the house who couldn't wait to tear open the packages - we would have had them up by the crack of dawn if they did it on Christmas Day. My dad worked the night shift so that idea would have been a non-starter with him!

When Diana and I started our own family I agreed to follow the traditional Christmas Day gift opening routine that she was used to - with one concession. We let our daughter Brittany open one package of her choice on Christmas Eve then the rest the following morning. Brittany has always liked that tradition, as well as another we started when she was a child - going to a midnight Christmas Eve candle lighting service at our church. We'll be leaving for that event in a couple of hours.

Spending Christmas Eve at that service 

Our daughter Brittany gets
 into the Christmas spirit.

helps us remember what this special holiday is really about and that is important to each of us. I also really like that we are still doing it together after all of these years. Brittany is now 24 and in her second year of medical school, but she is home on Christmas break and will be with us as she always has been.  

Tomorrow the crowd at our house will grow six-fold with 19 friends and relatives here to celebrate Christmas - a time when the old adage - the more the merrier - really rings true for us.  It will culminate a wonderful weekend and I am hopeful that whatever your faith may be you and your family are enjoying an especially memorable and meaningful holiday season as well.
