SIGHTS/TASTES/SMELLS/SOUNDS/ OF THE CHRISTMAS SEASON

I'm writing a short story that's taking place on Christmas Eve in a two locations, a middle-class American suburb, and a big city. (doesn't have to be specific.) One group's going out to look at the lights in the city, and the other's having a thing at home.

My question:
What are your favourite little things about the atmosphere of the Christmas season? What stands out the most in your mind? Sights, sounds, smells, tastes, touches.

I love writing about Christmas, but I'm trying to broaden my scope by hearing about what others have to say, along with using things from my own experiences.

Sidenote: *One of the characters is British. Would there be any Christmas traditions that are specific to them?

I researched this by searching for things like "favourite memories of Christmas" and "Christmas atmosphere", but I'm trying to dig a little deeper to really bring this to life.

Thanks!
