Do you open a gift on christmas eve?
Where I come from we didn't do that - where K comes from THAT IS ALL THEY DO.
So. Christmas eve with his family and the morning with mine. K tried to convince me to leave little things on odd days in the stockings before christmas, as surprises but I nixed it. The way I see it Santa does not have the time to make suprise visits before the big night.

How do you decorate your christmas tree?

Ooh, a meme with a theme!

Once in Royal David's City does it for me. Especially listening to the solo boy soprano singing it every year in Kings College chapel in Cambridge (broadcast on tv to us colonials).

Another vote for Little Drummer Boy. Come on! He's a LITTLE BOY! And he's PLAYING A DRUM FOR BABY JESUS! How sweet is that?

O Holy Night! My mom's favourite as well. I remember singing it in church on Christmas Eve (my B-day), very spiritual.
