Merry Christmas Eve!

Christmas Eve Traditions

Christmas Eve is the big holiday in our house.

Christmas Eve Traditions

Families change, children grow up, and our group gets larger every year.

One thing that doesn't change are family traditions. It is 6 am and my candle is lit.

The burning of the bayberry candle is one of those traditions that has been passed down for generations. You can read about it {here}. 

If you love this idea you can visit my Etsy shop to order your own candle tags with the poem.

This year we look forward to spending Christmas Eve with our 16 month old grandson.

He is old enough now to totally enjoy the excitement of the night including the ride on train with the horn and bells from Grandma!  :)

So my bayberry candle is lit, the cookies are made, the gifts are wrapped...

and on this beautiful Christmas Eve we wish everyone peace, love, and health.
