What does Christmas Eve look like at your house? Are the kids a mess trying to get to bed so Santa will come? Is it a flurry of activity of wrapping presents? Do you open any gifts or do you have to wait until midnight? Do you wait until Christmas Eve to put up the tree? Is there a special meal? A special eggnog recipe (wink)?

This year let's make some new memories and start some new traditions.

We've teamed up with our amazing friends over at Capital Area District Libraries for something special on Christmas Eve.

An event for the entire family. It's a tradition that goes back in so many ways. Back when folks gathered around the radio. Also when we sat and read and listened to stories. We all had our favorites. Especially during the holidays.

So this Christmas Eve get ready for a new tradition.

We're going to read The Night Before Christmas starting at 7 pm and we're going to do it every hour all the way until midnight.

Christmas Eve storytime with Capital Area District Libraries and 99.1 WFMK.

Tune in at 7 p.m. to hear children's librarian Miss Cassie read Clement Clarke Moore’ classic The Night Before Christmas. Visions of sugarplums guaranteed! The program will repeat every hour until midnight. (CADL)

We hope you and your family will join us and listen on the radio or via the FREE 99.1 WFMK app. And don't forget, you'll hear it every hour on the hour starting at 7 pm and going all the way until midnight.
