Is it wrong to say "Working the whole night was totally a new way to spend the Christmas Eve"? Is the 'totally' in a wrong place in the sentence? If so, where should it be?
There, I'm trying to emphasize that working through the night on that day was definitely something I've never done before. I could've replaced the word with e.g. 'certainly', 'truly' or 'definitely'.
'Totally' could be used in either place and the sentence would mean the same thing. The other words you cited would not work in both places.
As a side note, we (NA) would not refer to the Christmas Eve. We would simply say ... spend Christmas Eve.
