My Christmas Eve Traditions


I absolutely love christmas Eve, as soon as I wake up I am like a child. I can never sleep on christmas eve either, and we never go to bed early so this year I wanted to get some bits to keep us occupied and have some fun.

My tradition is always the same, rushing around doing last minute bits, like cleaning the house all ready for Christmas Day, and then making sure final presents are wrapped and under the tree and I also like to pamper myself so I’m feeling good for christmas day, I apply some fake tan, wash my hair and paint my nails and then its time to relax. I always love binge watching christmas films in the evening and getting all cosy in my christmas PJs!

I found this christmas eve activity pack in Marks and spencer and I had to get it, It’s probably for kids but hey you’re never to old right!?

This set comes with a few fun bits to do and I thought it would be a bit of a laugh for me and john to do this while watching some christmas films. He didn’t seem to keen when I showed him but I bet he will change his mind come christmas eve ha!

The kit contains

Christmas eve checklist

Word search


Dot to dot

tongue twisters

puzzle santa placemat

2 Popcorn treat boxes

sticker clock & envelopes

So the idea with the clock stickers is to seal all the activities up in the envelopes and set a time you want to open and complete the activities on christmas eve. I probably wont be doing that as that’s definitely for kids haha but I love the idea.


Next up is my favourite christmas films I watch every year without fail, I’ve listed a few I like to watch but to be honest I love watching any christmas films.

Muppet christmas carol

Santa Claus 1, 2 and 3


Home alone 1 & 2

The polar express

I can’t forget my favourite christmas songs now can I!! I like to play these while I’m finishing up wrapping presents or just dancing around the house to.

fairytale of new york (the pouges)

last christmas (wham)

all I want for christmas is you (Mariah Carey)

driving home for christmas (Chris Rea)


Then lastly These are my christmas PJs I got last year from Newlook. I love them and had to have them as soon as I saw them, you must have some christmas themed pyjamas ha ha, primark had some really good ones this year, I actually got a home alone t-shirt I’m going to wear this year as well.

I really hope you all have a fantastic and safe Christmas with your friends and family and enjoy every minute of it, and eat far too much food! I’m signing off now till after Christmas as I want to put my laptop down and just relax. I haven’t done as many Christmas posts as I originally wanted to I’m afraid but I’ve had so much going on, I just havent had the time. I really do praise all of you who have done blogmas this year, you’re amazing!! I didn’t want to commit myself and then end up hating it as that takes away all the fun and excitement for christmas.

what do you like doing on Christmas Eve? Have you got any traditions? Let me know below.

I want to say a BIG thank you all for your love and support this year and thanks for reading!!

    I love that little activity pack! I don’t really have many traditions on Christmas Eve apart from pampering, baking and watching Christmas movies. I’m like a big kid too, I get waaaay too excited. Hope you’ve had a lovely Christmas xx
