Christmas Eve is a time of heightened celebration as children place their shoes by the fireplace in anticipation of gifts from the Infant Jesus or Santa Claus. Consoada, a special holiday meal, is eaten on Christmas Eve and at midnight many people attend midnight mass. A traditional sweet is the kingcake, baked with a dry bean inside of it. Whoever finds the dry bean has to pay the kingcake or buy another one to eat at the midnight supper on December 31.
