Christmas Eve, citizens go to the local church and sing Christmas carols with friends and family. Many will spend the whole day doing such activites, as well as exchanging small gifts in the evening. The tradition is for the parents to put oranges in both the slippers of their children for when they wake up on Christmas morning. The house will usually be very decorated with a vast table of food, with turkey as the center-piece of the table. In the morning, children will go downstairs and recieve gifts, usually mountains full of them. They will then all put money towards buying their parents a gift that they present. All of this represents love and congratulation for making it through the year. It is the most special day of the year for the Lyonheimermen. It often snows on Christmas too, due to snow coming from the south that usually comes around late December.
