Christmas Eve (Heiligabend) doesn't mean the day before Christmas like in the U.S. Christmas (Weihnachten) and Christmas Eve is December 24th in Germany. While in Germany the gift exchange happens on the night of December 24th, the U.S. Americans wait until the next morning to give their gifts. Traditionally, on Heiligabend before the Bescherung (gift giving) begins, many Germans go to church. Afterwards a Christmas dinner will be prepared and served before or after the exchange of gifts. Typical meals may include fish, duck, goose, fondue or raclette. In some families the whole family comes together; in others December 24 is celebrated only by the close family, whereas the larger family (grandparents, uncles and aunts, etc.) will be visited on the first or second Day of Christmas (December 25 and 26).
