Christmas Eve in the night before Christmas. It’s the longest night of the year when you’re a kid. It’s the ultimate deadline for buying presents when you’re an adult. Christmas Eve is the night that Santa flies around delivering presents to Christian kids with chimneys. It’s the night when families go on walks to look at houses more festive then theirs. It’s the night when bored twenty-somethings flee the house and find refuge in hometown bars. It’s the night when lonely people stand anxiously under mistletoe. It’s the final night to sing carols and watch holiday movies and drink eggnog because you’ll be too burnt out on the season to celebrate the next night. Christmas Eve is the peak evening for Christmas. Everybody knows that Christmas interest starts to wane after opening presents on Christmas morning. It’s a fact. I read it on Wikipedia. Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals… and a happy New Year.
