To black tie or not to black tie

Recently I had a midnight blue dj made to measure. I was planning to wear it New Years Eve but then I thought why not to Christmas Eve and/ or Christmas dinner? Allways looking for a chance to wear it.

Both will be a family event where the other men will be in button down shirts at most. Since my family should know that by wearing a tuxedo I'm not trying to be show anyone up, and my daily attire includes at least a sportcoat(so I"m dresseir anyway), should I wear my dj?

If not I would probably wear a sportcoat and a tie.

A dinner jacket would be too much for Christmas. A sport coat and tie would be best. Christmas should be relaxed. But most people I know have their Christmas dinner in the afternoon, making the dinner jacket inappropriate in any case. If your family gathering starts before 5:00 PM, there is no need to consider the dinner jacket.
