Having begun Advent with the Handel-Jennens Messiah with it’s prophecies of the fulfillment of the Word, I can think of no better way of greeting the Eve of Christmas than the joyous announcement of that fulfillment.
Luke 2: 8(And) there were (in the same country) shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
Luke 2: 9-11
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
Luke 2: 13-14
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
… and on our earth peace, good will toward all men.
