Christmas Eve Eve

Yesterday I heard the term "Christmas Eve Eve" said on the radio. I had never heard this term before and just find it kind of odd. I understand why it was said, but in all honesty, shouldn't we really refer it simply as December 23?

This tree is on display at the Mall Of America in the circle rotunda. It tops three stories high in it's height. The rotunda area has a fourth level of restaurants [which are currently closed and have been for about a year].

Nice photo - again. Wow, you do have some incredible shots on this page. :)

In Norway we have a term for December 23. We call it "Lille julaften" which means "little Christmas Eve". That's the day for preparing for the celebration the next day (we celebrate Christmas on the 24th). I remember it as the day for decorating the tree.
