Christmas Eve gets busy around 4pm for us. We go to my Grandmothers for a big crazy couple of hours. There will be 5 generations in one place. No matter where you go in her house, it's full of people. Little ones running around and older ones trying to find a place to sit down. After we leave her house, some of us (The Estep branch) head to the church to ready for the Christmas Eve service. It's a part of Christmas Eve that I love. It's usually just my family at the church for a while and we laugh, take pictures and make sure that everything is ready for the service.
I love the Christmas Eve Service. There is just a special feeling that takes over the whole sanctuary. When we light the candles and sing Silent Night, sometimes I get overwhelmed and cry. It is just a special time.
