Christmas Eve Box
The Christmas Eve box is another of our traditions each December. We bought ours from www.notonthehighstreet.co.uk but you could use any box and decorate it or, in recent years, I have seen them on other websites and also in shops such as Dealz.
As Christmas approaches each year I get to filling the box. Each year I buy a Christmas themed book and a Christmas themed DVD to put in the box. I also buy Christmas pyjamas and treats (usually popcorn, hot chocolate and something Christmas themed like Christmas chocolate or a candy cane) for our Christmas eve movie night. Finally, I put in the Santa key (we have no chimney in our house) and some reindeer food (oats – no glitter!).
As part of our tradition we also usually read the Christmas story and Twas The Night Before Christmas.
