Celebrate Christmas Eve Eve With Family Fun

T’was the night before the night before Christmas, when all through the house, the family was incredibly bored. With most area kids off school for the entire week leading up to Christmas, there might be some cabin fever setting in. If you aren’t preparing for holiday dinners, wrapping gifts, or (gasp) still shopping, what’s there to do for family fun on the day before Christmas Eve, also known as Christmas Eve Eve/Festivus?

Hosted by No steeples, an organization that reminds everyone that church is more than just a building, families can enjoy a celebration of winter (by Orlando standards) at the 8th Annual “I CAN’T WAIT 4 CHRISTMAS EVE” event. Families will gather to sing Christmas carols and savor hot cocoa while learning about the true meaning of the season. You’ll also discover ways of bringing joy into your home during the holidays. This event, which runs from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., is sure to make every grinch’s heart grow three sizes and help every Scrooge embrace the day.

Over at Winter Park High School, Journey Church offers an evening celebration tonight from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. The featured entertainment of the evening is the telling of the untold true story known as “The Night AFTER Christmas.” This represents the first Christmas event for one of the newest churches in the Orlando area. Journey Church was founded this past September, and invites you and your family to join and help to forge the future of the new organization. In addition to the show, there will be cookies and milk (if Santa doesn’t get to them first), interactive coloring books for kids, and lots of laughter. So, enjoy some pre-Christmas family fun and, of course, Happy Festivus…for the rest of us.
