Decorate your table as if you were having a party with VIPs. Get out your holiday tablecloth and dishes. (Disposable holiday dinnerware will work too!) Use holiday napkins and centerpieces. Set out an assortment of holiday cookies for snack time later. Let your children help decide the menu. Wrap an ornament as an extra gift that can be opened early and place in center of each person's plate. Before or after the meal, enjoy your usual Christmas activities, and you may consider adding a few new ones such as going Christmas caroling in your neighborhood, playing fun Christmas games, etc. Seize the moment and enjoy your special time together!
