It’s the most magical night of the year! And we’re as excited as ever. The Christmas shopping is done, the house is full to the brim of delicious festive food, the pjs are on, and you might even have your favourite festive tipple in hand. They don’t call it the most wonderful time of the year for nothing.
But just in case you’ve got any last minute prep to do, we’ve put together a little Christmas Eve checklist to ensure you’re ready for Santa’s arrival.
Your Favourite PJs
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a new set of gorgeous pyjamas, right? And if you have matching family pjs, well then that’s even better!
Sweet Treats and Snacks for Santa
We all know that calories don’t count at Christmas, so why not whip up a batch of these super easy, super delicious brownies? They’re so easy in fact, the little ones will enjoy making them too! They’ll also make an excellent snack for Santa while he delivers your presents – just don’t forget something for the reindeer too.
Make A List, Check it Twice
Christmas Day dinner is no mean feat. It’s almost like the final of The Great British Bake Off and Masterchef, combined! If the duty falls on you this year, it might be no harm to make a list of all the dishes you’re creating, as well as putting their timings beside them, to ensure a seamless, stress-free culinary experience. It’ll also ensure you don’t forget something! A Christmas dinner, sans stuffing? I don’t think so!
Pick Your Favourite Christmas Film To Watch
Before the little ones go to bed, stick on a festive flick to really get into the Christmas spirit. Here are our top Christmas movie picks on Netflix. And when the kids are all tucked up, the infamous Father Ted Christmas Special starts at 8.05pm on RTE 2.
