Lots of people are asking if Christmas Eve is a Bank Holiday. The answer is no, it isn’t. In the UK many companies let their staff finish early on Christmas Eve. Shops, pubs and restaurants of course stay open as long as they can for last minute business. There are often last minute bargains to be had in UK supermarkets on Christmas Eve when the shops try to sell off surplus Christmas food items.
If you have children, don’t forget to make sure that they leave a mince pie out for Father Christmas along with something to drink and a carrot for the reindeer.
When is Christmas Eve?
