It’s finally here — Christmas Eve! Make it magical with these at-home traditions and activities all ages can enjoy!
Set out a hot cocoa bar for guests with mugs guests can take home to remember their time in your home.
Retell favorite family stories about the holidays.
Take out-of-town guests to see the wackiest Christmas lights in town.
Grab a stack of holiday books, some hot cider, and snuggle on the couch reading familiar tales.
Surprise neighbors with cookies (and caroling, if you dare!).
Give new pajamas to everyone staying in your home and declare it pajama night ASAP.
Video call family members and friends who couldn't make the trip this year.
Divide into teams and host a gingerbread house competition.
