Wombat Eve

I have a sister named "Eve" who Sarah adores.

Sarah: Daddy, why is it called "Christmas Eve?" Why does Eve get her own Christmas?
Robert: Well Eve is her name, but when we call a day a name and then "Eve" it means the day before.
Sarah: So the day before my birthday would be "Sarah's Birthday Eve?"
Robert: Well..I guess technically.

Sarah: *thinks on this for a bit*
Sarah: Daddy, why is Eve called "the day before"?

Indeed, why *is* your sister named 'The Day Before'? Seems rather cumbersome and doesn't roll off the tongue very well.

I hope you guys are preparing yourselves, you have a quite a handful there! She's amazing.
