Whether you have a list of traditions or not, here are a few great recommendations that you can add to your Christmas Eve celebrations this year!
1. Christmas Eve Pickle
This tradition is one that will tickle everyone. It's German in origin, though no one seems to be exactly sure how it started. Basically the pickle-shaped ornament is the last one that goes on the tree on Christmas Eve, and it's hidden deep in the branches. Whichever kid finds it first in the morning gets an extra gift from Santa.
2. Peppermint Pig
3. Pajama Elves
Christmas is a great time for cozy new pajamas, especially because the elves can deliver them on Christmas Eve. There's even a book, The Pajama Elves by Hayden Edwards, that tells the tale of elves bringing magic pajamas that you can incorporate as well.
6. Christmas Key
Don't have a chimney? No worries, just leave Santa a magic Christmas key. Hang it outside on Christmas Eve, and he's sure to have no problem at all getting in and leaving gifts.
