Everyone looks forward to Christmas Day, the presents, the food, the parties! It’s such a fun time, but nothing beats the excitement of Christmas Eve. Whether you’re spending it with close friends or the entire family, there’s something special about the night before Christmas. Here at The Good Guys, we love Christmas Eve, which is why we’ve come up with a bunch of activities to help you get into the festive spirit. So, if you’re looking to start some new traditions or just trying to figure out what to do on Christmas Eve, check out these great ideas.
He may ride a magical sleigh, but that doesn’t mean old Saint Nick doesn’t need a little help from time-to-time. When Santa flies into Australia, he’s in constant communication with flight controllers all across the country to make sure he doesn’t run into any planes. So, if you’re trying to figure out what to do with the kids on Christmas Eve, grab the nearest computer, phone or tablet and visit Air Service Australia. From here you’ll be able to monitor Santa’s flight path and see when he’s in your area. But remember Santa doesn’t deliver presents until the kids are asleep, so don’t let them take the tracker to bed or else they’ll be up all night.

If you’re looking for things to do on Christmas Eve that are a little out of the ordinary, why not help Santa out by creating your very own sleigh runway. If you’ve got access to a little extra space like a backyard or driveway, it’s easy to set up a festive landing strip to make sure Saint Nick knows where to go. All you’ll need are two sets of fairy lights laying side by side. And while most outdoor models should do the trick, if you want to take it to a whole new level, we recommend Crest Multicoloured Festoon Lights. These smart lights have 8 lighting modes through 100 multi-coloured LED beads, if that doesn’t get Santa’s attention, we’re not sure what will. Just watch your kid’s faces light up when the runway turns on as if by magic.

Christmas Eve just wouldn’t be Christmas Eve without baking a few bickies for Santa, and with all the work he’s got to get through – it’s the least we can do. Which is why our friends at KitchenAid have come up with this deliciously fun recipe for Stained Glass Christmas Biscuits. They’re the perfect on-the-go snack for one very busy man and baking them with the kids is a fun family Christmas Eve tradition that everyone can get involved in. Check out the recipe below and for any Christmas cooking essentials, explore our kitchen must-haves here.
To start you’ll want to invest in a good quality mixer, like the KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer. The Artisan Stand Mixer comes with a range of attachments including the flat beater pour, which you will require for this recipe.
While Christmas is an exciting time of year, it can also be exhausting. Buying presents, preparing food, planning dinners and organising parties; with so much on, we wouldn’t blame you if you just wanted to sit back, relax and watch something on TV. Which is why we’ve asked some of the team at The Good Guys to recommend their favourite Christmas movies, and there are some absolute classics.
If you’re looking for something to keep the kids entertained check out Arthur Christmas, this clever animation has a Steller cast that turn what should be a kids movie into fun for the whole family.
If it’s just you and your partner, you can’t go past the cult British rom-com Love Actually.
But if you’re after something slightly more vintage, check out Miracle on 34th Street or the fan favourite
It’s a Wonderful Life. Of course, whatever you choose, remember – to make something a Christmas Eve tradition you have to do it every year, so make sure you choose a movie everybody likes!
