Christmas Eve Service

Over the past few weeks I have been thinking a lot about Christmas Eve Candlelight Services.  When I was growing up our church always did a candlelight service at 11:00pm.  When I was very young my sister and I would go in our pajamas and usually be asleep before we got home (even though we only lived a block away).  As I grew older this became one of my favorite Christmas traditions.  We would sing some carols, have some special music, have some elements of a live nativity, and have a short message.  We would end the night by receiving communion as families and then ringing our Church Bell at midnight, declaring that is was Christmas Morning.  I have very fond memories of handing out Christmas Cards and receiving them, and ringing in Christmas morning with family and friends.

What are some of your Christmas Eve traditions?  Do you attend a Church Service?  Is it a candlelight service?  I would love to hear your feedback and ideas.
