a shot of Whisky and a mince pie with a napkin get left by the front door for Santa (we don`t have a chimney), then I turn on the oven to cook the turkey.
in the morning, Check turkey and take the bacon rashers off it and make bacon sandwiches for breakfast.

that`s about all we do that IS routine :)

lol...our Santa always had wine and brie set out for him.

No more traditions for me. Kids have flown the coop and it's only Mr HB and me. I do have trouble getting in the spirit, except for my religous beliefs.

Growing up it was always hang the stockings by the back door ( I tried leotards one year), track Santa's whereabouts on the radio, Midnight Mass, then Reveillon. We got to open one gift, and you really wanted it to be a toy, and not mitts. LOL Christmas morning, 7am mass, bring a toy for the poor( heck, we were the poor), breakfast, open the rest of the gifts, get ready for Christmas dinner and lots of company. We never got invited anywhere for Christmas, who in their right mind would invite a couple with 7 kids!!!!

This will be my first Christmas where I am not spending it with any family, I've opted to visit a friend. The whole guilt trip is setting in nicely.

I told the boys that Santa would be tired of milk and cookies by the time he reached our house.

I always bought a game to play on Christmas Eve, before church. The neighbors would come over and we'd have a wonderful time then caravan to midnight mass.

After I bought Pictionary, that was our game of choice from then on.

and yes, the boys were allowed to open one present on Christmas Eve.

Growing up and even now, we never did anything special on Christmas Eve. It was always -"early to bed Santa's coming" !!! Now I make my Egg casserole for Christmas morning, and off to bed -- Santa's Coming !
