    Post here if your looking forward to Christmas, post pictures from previous Christmas's and what your Christmas traditions for your family are. I wanna see if I can get some new ideas. [​IMG] Pretty please?
     
  2. It has been a tradition every year that my parents give, "Christmas pajamas" to all the grandkids. My dad's grandparents lived on a farm and every year his grandparents gave them, "Christmas pajamas." The night before Christmas, all the kids open their Christmas pajamas and they wear them to bed for Christmas morning. My parents have 14 grandkids now(we have 4 and my 2 brothers each have 5) and yep, you guessed it, "CHRISTMAS PAJAMAS" from MomMom and PopPop every Christmas Eve!!! It's such a simple, yet wonderful tradition and we will always do this! Can't wait to do it with my grandchildren some day!! [​IMG]

    Christmas Pj's are our tradition here too, the kids get to open them on Christmas Eve to look nice for SANTA of course (that is what my parents did for us also). Also our traditional dinner is Pasties (everyone gets to help make and choose their fillings) I try to simplify our holiday menu rather than make a huge feast, there is always so much food everywhere we go.
    I love Christmas, we have already started counting the days [​IMG]
