Christmas Eve is the day before Christmas Day when Christians get spiritually and materially prepared for the birth of Jesus Christ. The morning and the day of Christmas Eve is characterized by: the preparation of the Yule log, fasting, cleaning and decorating house interior and exterior, making cakes, preparing candles for Christmas, decorating the Christmas tree (pine or fir-tree) and creating nativity scene. The evening of Christmas Eve is characterized by: bringing the Yule log into the house, sprinkling with holy water, praying together, having fasting dinner, singing Christmas carols, holding vigil and going to the Midnight Mass. A great number of customs, rituals and processions related to Christmas Eve in the area of Posušje have disappeared or changed, therefore it is necessary to record them so that they would not be irretrievably lost.
