A Visit From St. Nicholas
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all thro’ the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar plums danc’d in their heads, . . .
—Clement Clarke Moore

Christmas eve we have Christmas with my husbands family, there’s a birthday cake and we sing happy birthday to Jesus, we then come home and have the kids open their Christmas Eve Present (a brand new pair of pj’s for Christmas morning pictures). Christmas morning we wake up go to the tree the kids see what Santa brought, we have breakfast and read the story of Jesus’s birth and sing happy birthday again. The kids then get to go to the tree and we start opening presents. The rest of the day is normally spent at home so the kids can play with their new toys. That evening we have dinner with my parents and see Christmas lights. We love our tradition and the kids are now at the age they enjoy reading Jesus’s birth to us. This is our Christmas Tradition
What a lovely tradition, Victoria. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas to you as well 🙂
I love the idea of the Christmas Eve present being new pyjamas. I am still a little way off having little ones but when I do I will try to remember this idea.
My favorite thing about is, is pajama’s are the one thing I always forget to buy them so this makes sure they have a new pair every year and makes for some beautiful pictures.
