5 Cool Things to Do on Christmas Eve Wearing Matching Christmas Pajamas

Matching Christmas Pajamas for the whole family (pajamas in adult sizes; playwear clothing sets in childrens sizes) is a popular, fun family tradition. While some families wear them all holiday season long, others choose to select a fun Christmas PJ set and give them out on Christmas Eve as a special gift tradition. While the opening of matching Christmas pajamas in itself is a fun holiday tradition, there are some other fun activities and ideas you can do with your family while wearing them on Christmas Eve. These unique and clever holiday tradition ideas come to us from customers, family members all over the world and special friends we have made during our years in business creating fun family clothing for families. This years I decided to write them down for everyone to enjoy. Feel free to pick and choose, modify, embellish and add-on to the fun traditions that other families enjoy on Christmas Eve. And if you have a great Christmas Eve tradition that you share with your family, please be sure to tell me at amber@footstepsclothing.com. As always, the most important thing is to spend quality time with family and enjoy them to the fullest.

1. Baking Cookies for Santa – After opening your special Christmas Eve gift, head into the kitchen and bake Santa up some special cookies just for him. Don’t forget to take pictures and write him a note. 

 
2. Watch a Classic Holiday Movie – Gather around the TV and watch a classic holiday movie. You can choose some of the time-tested old movies such as Miracle on 34th Street or a new release with all the modern bells and whistles like Elf. The important thing is to choose something everyone will enjoy and snuggle up together.


3. Read aloud a Classic Holiday Story – This Christmas Eve tradition is fun no matter how old the family is. Choose a family member to read and pick a classic holiday story to read aloud. Have everyone gather around. For a fun twist, distribute sound effect duties to different family members such as “Ho! Ho! Ho!” or reindeer feet on the roof to get everyone interactive and involved. Choose a fun, creative story from the classic The Night Before Christmas, to a new fun twist such as The Pajama Elves by Hayden Edwards.


4. Decorate the Tree – While many families choose to trim the tree early in the holiday season, some families love to decorate it on Christmas Eve. Wearing your matching Christmas Pajamas while decorating the tree makes it more fun. Don’t forget to put on some holiday tunes and sip some holiday drinks while you have fun decorating the tree.

5. Attend Midnight Mass – How fun to go to church on Christmas Eve with the whole family wearing matching jammies! Not only does wearing matching pjs to church services promote a sense of the true Christmas spirit, but also shows family unity. And of course, everyone will love all the attention you get!
