This subcategory is for Mass propers or other items specific to the Christmas Eve Mass or Christmas Vigil Mass (Vigilia in Nativitate Domini).
Christmastide traditionally begins at sunset of the day before Christmas. There are own propers for Christmas Eve Mass; in recent years, however, many churches have scheduled their Midnight Mass before midnight on Christmas Eve.
The propers were unchanged by the 2nd Vatican Council:

Proper Liber usualis & Gregorian Missal (1990)
Introit: Hodie scietis
Gradual: Hodie scietis
Alleluia verse: Crastina die
Offertory: Tollite portas
Communion: Revelabitur
