Christmas Eve is one of my favourite days of the year. It always has been.
So many precious traditions.
A Christmas Eve service with Ian and the children. Gathering with all the people I love most in this world at my mom's for a delicious dinner filled with laughter.
Afterwards, watching each of the children open one gift. Sitting in front of the fire to listen to them take turns reading The Night Before Christmas.
Then, going home to get the children ready for bed. Tracking Santa on the Norad site. Putting out cookies and milk for Santa. Children too excited so sleep.
Sitting in the darkened living room with my Ian's arms around me, looking at the lights on our beautiful tree. Reflecting on the birth of our Saviour. The beauty of the true meaning for the season.
So much anticipation and hope held in the heart.
Anything is possible.
How do YOU spend your Christmas Eve?
