Christmas traditions

Today I asked my 6 year old nephew how many days to Christmas and he replied ‘1’! I was about to correct him to say there were 2 when I remembered that for him Christmas is the day he gets his presents and that here, in Portugal that is on Christmas Eve!

The preparations start early and dinner on Christmas Eve is in reality the most important  and most traditional meal for our family.  The kids can’t wait for the meal to be over and for the adults to finish clearing the kitchen up after that it’s time to open the presents!
