Decorating Christmas tree
We decorate

Santa,stars,snowman...

Also we decorate around home with a lot of rights.
Churches
Western churches traditionally celebrate Midnight Mass (the birth of Christ). The churches would play special festive music for organ, vocal and brass choirs and provide candlelight services.Methodists celebrate the evening in different ways. Some, in the early evening, come to their church to celebrate Holy Communion with their families. Others celebrate the evening with services of light, which include singing the song "Silent Night" as a variety of candles are lit.
Once on a cold Christmas Eve night, a forester and his family were in their cottage gathered round the fire to keep warm. Suddenly there was a knock on the door. When the forester opened the door, he found a poor little boy standing on the door step, lost and alone. The forester welcomed him into his house and the family fed and washed him and put him to bed in the youngest sons own bed (he had to share with his brother that night!). The next morning, Christmas Morning, the family were woken up by a choir of angels, and the poor little boy had turned into Jesus, the Christ Child. The Christ Child went into the front garden of the cottage and broke a branch off a Fir tree and gave it to the family as a present to say thank you for looking after him. So ever since them, people have remembered that night by bringing a Christmas Tree into their homes.

A Story about Christmas Tree...
In 16-17th century in Europe,
many Protestants changed the gift bringer to the
Christ Child
, and the date of giving gifts changed from
December 6
to
Christmas Eve
.
It is the night when Santa Claus makes gifts to good children.
The Christmas Candy Cane originated in Germany about 250 years ago. They started as straight white sugar sticks.
A story says that a choirmaster was worried about the children sitting quietly all through the long Christmas nativity service. So he gave them something to eat to keep them quiet! As he wanted to remind them of Christmas, he made them into a 'J' shape like a shepherds crook, to remind them of the shepherds that visited the baby Jesus at the first Christmas.

Christmas Eve Dinner

A traditional Christmas dinner includes Turkey,apple or meat Pie,Cake,and wine.
As you can see in the picture below.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.
