Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve is the day before Christmas Day, and is treated to a greater or a lesser extent in most Christian societies as a public holiday.

It falls on December 24. Many Christians traditionally celebrate a Midnight mass[?] at midnight on Christmas Eve, marking the beginning of Christmas Day. It is also seen as the night when Santa Claus or his international variants, make their rounds giving gifts to good children.
