  • 2. Christmas Eve • Christmas Eve is an important part of Christmas celebrations and takes place by the evening of 24 December before Christmas . It is an opportunity to organize a festive meal in family , because Christmas is still a magical moment for children, Eve must contribute .
  • 3. • This meal is often made ​of a Christmas turkey and ended with a Christmas cake called Christmas log (because it looks like a log you put in the fire place) . It can also be a goose and foie gras. It is often preceded by a dish of seafood ( oysters, etc. . ) .
  • 4. There is also a tradition called the Thirteen desserts, in remembrance of Jesus and his twelve apostles , who comes from Provence .
  • 5. This is also the time to prepare the socks or shoes to be near the fireplace or under the Christmas tree to allow Father Christmas to deliver gifts .
  • 6. Finally for Catholics on Christmas Eve normally follows midnight mass which is still very popular in the collective mind , even though it is often celebrated in the early evening rather than midnight to practical reasons ( one priest can and celebrate several masses in various churches). The return of the Mass or at midnight , it is tradition that a child adds the character of the Child Jesus in the manger to mean he was born .
  • 7. « Joyeux Noël ! » At midnight , it is common to wish a " Merry Christmas." In some families, it's time to open gifts. Other families wait for the next morning.
