    I always like Christmas Eve best, full of magic and promise. 

    Mostly and in normal times I like the company of family of course. ? ?

    I love good food and drink so it has to be that. :)

    I do also like spending time with family but I am not fortunate like some people in that I don’t have a family without its tensions and arguments are something that I really struggle with due to my issues. That said I am fortunate to at least have some family which is something some people don’t have.

    That the concept of good will still exists and is acted upon.
    Oh, and naughty quantities of food, drink and hearing that presents were appreciated.

    Giving gifts, and usually a time to spend time with family, sadly that won't be possible this year.

    The look of excitement on the kids faces , its not the same when they dont believe in Santa anymore

    I like giving gifts and seeing peoples reaction, and spending time with family which is one of the few times we get together every year but of course this wont be happening this year

    Seeing the look on people's faces as they open gifts and spending time with family. Thank you.

    Ahh, I agree with lots already mentioned.  Christmas Eve is my favourite day because of the air of excitement and it reminds me of being a kid again waiting for Father Christmas.  Also, the food is just lush isn't it?  Baileys, sprouts, mince pies and roast parsnips.  Then throw in smiling faces and time with the family, Christmas telly and carols and it's just magical :)
