Christmas Eve is December 24, 2022.

December 25th of 2022 will be the next Christmas Day in the United Kingdom. December 24th of 2022 will be seen as Christmas Eve in the United Kingdom this year and it will lead into New Year’s Day on January 1st of 2023.
The celebrations on Christmas Eve, the anniversary of Jesus Christ’s birth and prior to his ascension into heaven, would be the main celebration. This would also lead into New Year’s Eve, the beginning of the revelry for the New Year. However, it is not entirely clear if there will be any great festivities as night falls as December 24th will be Christmas Eve. Perhaps fireworks and/or bonfires are around the corner?
Some people may disagree with this date due to their religious beliefs. But it is important to note that it is a tradition in many countries that Christmas ends on January 6th or 7th. For example, this occurred in Germany until 2006 when they moved it to December 25th. The United States still has Christmas and New Year’s celebrations the same year.

Is the 23 Christmas Eve?
It was on this date that Queen Victoria saved the tradition, which was abolished by her puritan father King William IV. It had been replaced by “The Festival of Lights,” or winter solstice due to his concern that it diverts too much focus away from Christianity, starving orphans, and unwed mothers.
However, with the ascension of Queen Victoria, she would take up the tradition of holding a church service on Christmas Eve and then moving on to a party. The parties were at first filled with binge drinking and gambling but Queen Victoria put an end to that as she felt it was bad for children. She wanted more of a family-friendly atmosphere so she put her foot down.
The Christmas spirit is filled with family gatherings and gift-giving. It’s a time when people get together to celebrate Jesus’ birth and the reason for Christmas which is His love for us. [i]
