Midnight Mass Traditions
Americans love Midnight Mass. Taking your family to mass on Christmas Eve is a great way to state the Christmas Day. Mass centers around the Nativity. Replicas of the famous manger scenes show up inside and outside the home. Many churches start an hour before midnight on Christmas Eve. But churches also start at many hours in the evening to help guest fight crows. Pick up your friends and family and head out for an evening gathering.
