Opening Christmas Eve Pajamas...

is such a fun tradition for us.

I try to be mindful of all the Christmas waste we're producing and wrapping paper we're going through.

So, on Christmas Eve - I pulled out a pair of Christmas Pajamas for each child that I had hidden, removed their pillow cases from their pillows, stuffed the pillow cases with the new jammies, tied them up with a bow and announced,

"You each have a gift under the tree!  Find your pillow case."

They all recognized their individual pillowcases, screamed with excitement, opened them up and put on their new Christmas Jammies.

Over the years, this won't be a SURPRISE anymore.

It will be expected.

It will be fun.

I just love Family Traditions.

Do you have any fun Christmas Traditions to share?
