Family Festive Fun on Christmas Eve

Hey there, festive friends! ‘Tis the season to be jolly, but let’s be real – it’s also the season for mince pies, turkey with all the trimmings, and enough chocolates to build a cocoa fortress. If you’re on a weight loss journey, you might be feeling the pressure. Fear not, because I’ve got your back with a sleigh-load of fun and fab ideas to keep you on track without feeling like the Grinch who stole the festive joy!

Deck the Halls with Healthy Snacks

Swap out the sugar-laden treats for healthier alternatives. Create a snack station filled with veggie sticks, hummus, and a rainbow of fruits. Not only will it keep you away from the calorie-laden chocolate tub, but it’ll also make you feel better about yourself when you head to bed tonight.

Whether it’s a whimsical DIY ornament, a heartfelt coupon booklet, or a cleverly crafted trinket, the challenge adds an extra layer of festive fun to the holiday spirit. Not only does this activity encourage resourcefulness and creativity, but it also results in personalised stocking stuffers that hold a special touch of home. Get ready for a stocking-stuffing showdown that will leave your mantelpiece brimming with unique and laughter-filled treasures! 🎁

Christmas Karaoke Sing-a-Long

Turn your living room into a stage and unleash your inner carolers! Host a Christmas karaoke sing-along with holiday classics and modern favorites. It’s a lively way to bring the family together in song and laughter. Youtube is full of great Karaoke ideas, so there is no need to have an expensive karaoke machine either!

Hot Chocolate Station

Warm up your winter night with a DIY hot chocolate bar. Set up a station with mugs, hot chocolate mix, marshmallows, whipped cream, and an array of toppings. Let each family member create their own custom cup of cocoa, turning a simple drink into a delightful experience.

Christmas Story Time


Gather the family in a cozy corner and share your favourite Christmas stories. Whether it’s a classic tale like “A Christmas Carol” or a heartwarming children’s book, let the power of storytelling create a magical ambiance and instill the true meaning of Christmas in every heart.

Virtual Family Reunion

For families spread far and wide, technology can bridge the distance. Host a virtual family reunion on Christmas Eve, complete with festive backgrounds, holiday games, and a virtual toast. It’s a heartwarming way to connect and share the joy, no matter how many miles apart you may be.

Whatever you do on Christmas Eve, have a wonderful time and spread joy. Merry Christmas to you all and thank you for another year of support.
