As I’ve said before we celebrate Christmas on Christmas eve night and so we avoid the night before Christmas over excited kids as they’ve had the whole day to run this off. I do know that a lot of my friends have turned to Christmas Eve boxes as a way of calming the kids down and making Christmas eve a special and magical night in itself. So here with the help of this beautiful North Pole Delivery crate from Vintage apple crates. I have compiled 5 great Christmas Eve crate ideas for young and old.
