8 Christmas Eve Traditions You Can Start This Year

By  | Last Updated:  

Whether you’re looking for new traditions or just interested in seeing what other families do during the holidays, here are some great ideas for Christmas Eve traditions. Your boys will love making these memories as they help make reindeer food for Santa’s visit. They will be astonished to see the trail Santa left behind with the Snowy Magical Footprints! If you don’t have a chimney, your boys might wonder how Old Saint Nick gets into the house, so making a Glitter Key Ornament for the Christmas Eve Box is a great DIY idea. The Snowman Breakfast is a perfect start to Christmas morning, before digging through their Santa Sacks, which are the best solutions for odd-shaped gifts. The Christmas Pickle is a fun tradition for Christmas morning and Saying Goodbye to Our Elf on the Shelf provides closure for the holiday season.
