‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring… wait… who are we kidding? EVERY creature was stirring because it’s almost Christmas people!!!! CHRIMMUS!! The time of copious amounts of food, fat pants, Nan’s ridonkulous trifle that she only makes once a year, naps on the couch, Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas on repeat and presents, did we mention presents?
But before we can get to the big day, we want to know what does Christmas Eve look like at your place? Do you have any old traditions you like to bring out each year or are you starting some new traditions? How are you spending Christmas Eve? Are you…
WATCHING CHRISTMAS MOVIES ON THE TELLY?

BELTING IT OUT AT CAROLS BY CANDLELIGHT?
You’ve got your reindeer ears on, your candle is in hand and Anthony Callea is crooning away on stage in front of you along with the Melbourne Girls Choir. Fa la la la la!
SECRETLY TRYING TO WRAP GIFTS?
You’ve locked yourself in the bathroom with rolls of wrapping paper and far too many metallic ribbons in an attempt to hide your shoddy gift-wrapping efforts. Here’s a gift-wrapping hack you might find useful.
STILL SHOPPING. ARGHHHH?!
You’re frantically racing around Westfield like a deer caught in headlights because you’ve left your Christmas shopping to the last minute. Again. Looks like everyone’s getting Gold Class vouchers. Again.
STUCK AT CHRISTMAS DINNER WITH THE IN-LAWS?
‘Tis the season to keep the peace, which means kissing goodbye that post-turkey nap and piling back in the car to head to the next family ‘do.
FINALLY PUTTING UP THE TREE?
It’s been a hectic month, but there’s still time to put up the Chrissy tree, all while singing along to Michael Buble’s Christmas album and untangling the fairy lights.
EATING ALL THE FOOD… ALREADY?
The food coma has officially started. And there’s no going back from here. Let’s be honest, even the cookies you bought specifically to leave out for Santa are in danger right now.
Your life currently resembles that Qantas ad or the airport scene in Love Actually, which makes you tear up. Every. Single. Time. Sob!
You’re kicking things off early with a little (or a lot) of Christmas spirit also known as eggnog. Baileys and eggnog.
Wahhh! There’s no other way to say it *virtual hug*
