I'm sure every year, everyone has holiday traditions. Mine started with my children when they were very young, and I wanted to take pictures on Christmas morning without them wearing their most comfortable pajamas. Pajamas that consisted of favorite worn T-shirts, sometimes with or without pants. So, I started a tradition on Christmas Eve. All my children were allowed to open up one Christmas Eve gift. A “Santa” gift. It was always a new set of pajamas. When the kids were younger, they loved opening at least one gift early, present though as they grew older, they knew what that gift contained. This tradition satisfied two significant things for me. First, my children got to open at least one gift, and second, my Christmas photos consisted of children dressed in matching pairs of pajamas. As the years have gone by, my children have grown, yet we still maintain this tradition. A tradition that brings a chuckle to everyone as they always ask: “Gee, I wonder what Santa will bring us this year?". It has become a challenge for everyone to have the most surprising reaction when they open the box and see their new pajamas.
