Countdown to Christmas Eve — 2023-12-24 12:00 am (-149 days)

Christmas is one of the most beloved and long-awaited holidays of the year. Throughout December, people begin to prepare for this event by decorating their homes and buying gifts for loved ones. But the most magical day before Christmas is December 24 - Christmas Eve.

Christmas Eve is a time when the whole family gets together to celebrate Christmas. This day is filled with a special atmosphere that penetrates every home and every family. Everyone tries to spend this day in harmony and peace, forgiving each other’s grievances and forgetting about differences.

One of the main customs on Christmas Eve is decorating the house. Every family has its own traditions and customs, but most people decorate their homes with garlands, wreaths and other decorative items. Many also place a Christmas wreath on the table, which symbolizes the light and warmth of Christmas.

Particular attention is paid to the Christmas tree. This tree is a symbol of Christmas and represents the birth of Christ. The Christmas tree is decorated with colorful balls, garlands and ribbons. A star is usually hung on the top of the tree, which symbolizes the Star of Bethlehem, which showed the way to the Magi to the birthplace of Christ.

It is also customary to give gifts on Christmas Eve.

Usually gifts are given to children, but some adults also receive gifts from their loved ones. Gifts can be different - from small souvenirs to large gifts. The main thing is that the gift is made from the heart and with love.

In the evening of Christmas Eve, the whole family gathers at the table to taste festive dishes. Usually on the table there is a Christmas goose baked with apples, mashed potatoes, stewed cabbage and other traditional dishes. Also on the table there are always sweets such as gingerbread, cookies and marzipan.

After dinner, the whole family gathers by the fireplace or the Christmas tree to light candles and read a prayer. Then everyone goes outside to watch the fireworks and make a wish.

This is how Christmas Eve passes - the time when all families get together, give each other gifts and rejoice at the upcoming holiday. Christmas Eve is a day that fills people's hearts with joy and hope for a better future.
