SHOW ME CHRISTMAS: TRADITIONS
One of my favorite traditions is getting new Christmas pajamas on Christmas Eve. I get to open one present on Christmas Eve and it is ALWAYS pajamas. My sister still gets them too, even though she is 36!
If you have been reading my blog for a while you might already know that my FAVORITE Christmas tradition is our crazy hat/pajama Christmas day party. This tradition somehow evolved about 5 years ago and ever since my ENTIRE family (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc!) come to my parent's house for a party on Christmas wearing their pj's and a crazy Christmas hat! You can read more about 2009 and 2010 here if you wish!We have lots of food and lots of laughs. We also have a annual Yankee Swap (Do you guys know what that is or is it just a New England thing??). I love getting to spend this time with my whole entire fam!
Other favorite traditions are little things like having mimosas and fried dough after we open our presents on Christmas morning, playing the pickle game with my niece and nephew, sitting with my mom on the couch late on Christmas Eve looking at the tree, and going to my uncle's house for a party on Christmas Eve. I can't wait to continue some of these traditions with my growing family and when we have little bebe's in the future!
Only 5 days, I can't wait.... although I am a tiny bit stressed that I am going to get everything done!
