Christmas Eve is a very exciting time but still very busy. As we have our Midnight Feast after Mass in the early hours of Christmas morning there still is quite a lot to prepare before Mass, including all the ironing of good clothes that are essential for this particular Mass.
We are celebrating the birth of Our Saviour and Lord, we want to go in our very best clothes, hence the suits that are mandatory for our older boys and beautiful dresses for our girls. M,e well I don't have anything too fancy to wear but I did manage to make myself a new skirt the day before. This is amazing for me as it wasn't done in the last dying breaths of getting ready.
Ginny I thought of it earlier in the season but did not do it either. I know I have plans always greater than what I can achieve for Advent but hopefully will fix that next year.
In fact I will share my own struggle with a particular 'tradition' we have that I will attempt to change next year. So I look forward to 'baring all' so to speak about this soon.
Thank you for allowing us to share our excitement over the joy we have on Christmas Eve!!
Blessings to you and your homes,
