Christmas Eve Dinner Ideas

December 1, 2017

Christmas Eve is one of the most exciting days of the year. The anticipation over what tomorrow morning will bring, the gathering of family, the holiday traditions and the nostalgic, sparkling décor makes for a truly special time. The holidays are a busy time and Christmas Day is often reserved for a more formal sit-down dinner consisting of turkey or ham. When it comes to Christmas Eve however, it’s time to make dinner preparations simpler. Whether you’re entertaining with a pot-luck and playing games or perhaps serving appetizers and watching festive movies, there’s nothing more special than spending quality moments with those you love at this magical time of year.

We’ve pulled together some of our favourite (& easy) appetizer recipes that we hope will help you with your Christmas Eve dinner preparations – and don’t forget to pick up some treats for your late-night, roof-top visitors as well!
