Team BBY’s Family Traditions

We’re just big kids in the Team BBY office and we adore all things Christmas. With that in mind, here are just some of the things that we get up to on Christmas Eve with our family.


On Christmas Eve we always go for a little walk, afterwards we usually just laze around  before visiting family in evening. – Katie



We go to the Crib service at our local Church. It’s nice for the kids to hear about what Christmas is all about and there’s usually real donkey their too so it’s loads of fun. After, we go home, get our PJ’s on and read  ‘T’was the Night before Christmas’. – Yvette



For me it’s a bit different because we go to Bulgaria. It’s a family birthday on xmas eve so our tradition is have a big family get together and we go for a meal. we go to the church. – Anelia 



We’d love to hear what your plans are for Christmas Eve; let us know in the comments below.
