Day 24 of my mom and dad's Christmas memories for the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories made possible by Geneabloggers.
December 24 - Christmas Eve
How did you, your family or your ancestors spend Christmas Eve?
Many Christmas Eves (after Santa) were spent with my mom's side of the family. Either at my grandma's house, our house, or an aunt's house. That left Christmas day to be spent someplace else (for us it was usually at home but my aunt would go to her in-laws).
Later we would be able to have one present on Christmas Eve and eventually all our presents. (I think my parents just didn't want to wake up early and didn't want me waking up my brother before noon.)
