    What Christmas couldn't be without?
    I love Christmas Eve, the excitiment of the kids is infectious. We light loads of candles and sit around the tree, listening to all the trashy Christmas CD's. When the kids are in bed we drink mulled wine, eat mince pies, and sing carols......it's so lovely!
