Thomas MacEntee of Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories says:
How did you and your family spend Christmas Eve? Did you attend church services, perhaps a children’s service with a pageant? What about food – was there a special meal or did your family hold an open house so friends and family could stop by?
Share your memories of Christmas Eves gone by.
I don't have many strong memories of Christmas Eve apart from my mother being in the kitchen for what seemed forever. She was often cooking the ham or the pudding until midnight and up early to get the turkey on. My job was to wash up or help any way I could. Even if that meant discreetly leaving her so she could have space to think.
Tonight we seem to have carried on that tradition...cooking one enormous chicken for tomorrow and the other chicken will be cooked in the morning.
