I love Christmas time, cue music….It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It’s even more magical when you have got little ones, seeing their excitement as they count down to the big day. Also, I’m a Christmas baby and we celebrate my birthday on Christmas Eve, so we have lots to look forward to.
We have our family Christmas traditions that we do each year and have added a new one this year!
Decorating The Tree Together
One of our favourite traditions is to decorate the Christmas tree together. Every year we get the tree out of its box, get all of the decorations to hand and listen to Christmas tunes on MTV as we make the tree look all Christmassy. I do wait until the boys are out of sight and do a little bit of rearranging of the baubles! Haha.
Christmas Eve Boxes
I started doing a Christmas Eve box when my eldest was 3 and have gone on to do this every year since. I don’t go over the top with filling it as the boys get more than enough on Christmas day. I put in just enough to keep them entertained on Christmas Eve. There’s normally a Christmas storybook for bedtime, a new pair of pj’s, an activity book/colouring book, some Christmas craft bits, some hot chocolate and a sweet treat.
Matching Christmas Pyjamas
This is a new one for us but one I am absolutely loving. I have always got the boys new Christmas pyjamas and put them in their Christmas Eve boxes, but this year I am joining in with the ever-growing trend of family matching PJs! Pyjamas.com has kindly sent us this awesome set of bear family matching pyjamas. We have mummy bear, daddy bear and little bear on the fronts of our Pjs. The kids think it’s quite funny that mummy and daddy are wearing the same PJs as them. Pyjamas.com have a lovely selection of PJ’s for all of the family and are all very affordable.
What are your Christmas traditions? Do you have matching Pyjamas?
