Christmas Eve is the part of Christmas that I look forward to every year. My whole family plans a really big party. We have all kinds of food and we trade gifts to be opened on Christmas morning. We re-enact the Nativity story, and sing Christmas carols together. My dad dresses up in a red Santa suit, and comes in with a red bag full of gifts for everybody. We each take a turn sitting on his lap and tell him what we want for Christmas. Then he gives us a small gift that we are able to open on Christmas Eve. I really enjoy Christmas time — the whole season fills me up with joy. But my favorite time is Christmas Eve.
