One of my favorite childhood memories of Christmas Eve was re-enacting the Nativity with all of my cousins. (I never got to be Mary, and I'm still holding a grudge.) That's beside the point though. Anyway, we do a "live" nativity each year with our kids as well, and this year especially was great because most of the kids were old enough to participate without mishap. Getting together with family, singing carols and hymns, reading from the scriptures and eating cinnamon rolls and wassail isn't bad either.
