My Family's Christmas Pajamas Tradition

We all Match on Xmas Eve -- Every Year!

I remember fondly my family's tradition: each December 24th, we'd open up one gift a piece--this gift was chosen by my mother. Of course, she'd always choose--you guessed it--the box containing the family Christmas pajamas. They'd already be laundered and ready to go, so all we had to do was tear the wrapping paper off the box and put them on.

We would spend the rest of the night watching winter movies and sipping hot chocolate, all cuddled up in our coordinating sleepwear. The next morning, we'd all come downstairs to enjoy the rest of the holiday morning's festivities. Then, we'd take our annual "matching" family photo. I still love looking through albums at each passing year of us (although, I admit it, I cringed at them from about age 12 until I moved out). Luckily, the styles today are a bit more fashionable than what we had to wear when this tradition started back in 1983!

One of My Favorites!

Love the Front and Back of These!

Perfect for Fun Families!

This is a fun ensemble with a twist: the front says "Nice" and the back says "Naughty." This would make for a really cute family picture: just pose some people forward and some people backwards. I think it would be especially cute if the Dad wears "naughty" and the Mom wears "nice". :) Of course, you can always go the easy route and put the kids in the "naughty" version -- everyone seems to get a kick out of that.

Matching Family Christmas Pajamas: Red & White

Let it Snow

This is one of the cutest sets out there and won't last long (great for you, not so much for me since I'll have to update this page!). I love the snowflakes that are on the pants. These would make for fantastic photos because I love the pop of red on the top. Know what the best part is? The infant option comes with matching booties! Because these don't "scream" Christmas, they can be used the entire winter season so you get more bang for your buck.

'O Xmas Tree, 'O Xmas Tree! - LOVE the Ornament theme!!

Colorful PJs

I love this set -- think how great this will look up against a Christmas tree. The colors will simply pop! What's really neat about this is that the adults can choose if they want a printed top, or if they want a solid top. I think the solid top would actually look really awesome as it will allow the kiddos to stand out.

Whichever you choose, this is bound to make for a great family photo!

Solid or Print for Adults

Here is another option in which the adults get to choose their top - Mom and Dad can pick if they want a solid top (with tree design) or the colorful tree print. I love having options, don't you?

I like this pattern a lot; it's always interesting to kick the traditional red habit this time of year. I also love that infants as young as six months can get in on the action. I have a newborn this year so having something that will fit him is very important to me.

Fun Red & White with Snowflakes

Here is another warm, flannel set for everyone in a great snowflake print. Yes, you read it correctly, these are flannel. Some people find the material a bit too toasty even in the cold winter months, so make sure you choose accordingly! I'm so torn with these, because I live in Florida so I know these won't cut it even in winter, but I love them so much!

Make sure to include the family pet in any photos you take. Fido will be so proud!

Fun Snowflake Design in Navy

This long-sleeve navy pajamas set is adorned with a snowflake (perfect for the season!). Youth pants are gray whereas adult pants have blue plaid. This is a good choice if you want to buck the traditional red and green coloring of the season. If you plan to take a photo in front of a white tree, I think navy will definitely pop!

Because this set doesn't "scream" holiday, I think you could definitely get a lot of wear out of them throughout the winter season.

Red & Green Pajamas

These matching pajamas for the family would make for a great morning photo -- the colors would really pop! I love the bright green top since it's a bit different than the typical evergreen hue, as well as the pants that feature family/holiday-type words. My favorite part is that the family pet can get involved, too! We have two dogs, so I always try to get them involved if we doing anything that involves everyone.

Popular Style in Cozy Red Plaid

These are great for Xmas-time...and any time of the year! I like this set since there isn't any tiny lettering to see, just big, bold plaid.

These are also a wonderful choice due to the material: they're plaid! Perfect for keeping cozy on cold nights. Perfect if you like a traditional color and pattern!

      I love the matching pajamas for the whole family idea, when my kids were young we used to get them matching pj's for Christmas, but I never thought to get them for my husband and I - I may just do that this year. Thanks for the idea

      We never had matching pajamas but when I was little I had a doll that had pajamas like mine. That was fun. I love these Family Christmas Pajamas.

      We don't have any matching pajamas, but these look so cute and cozy we might have to think about it! I love your family tradition. We had a similar one, but no matching pjs for us. My mother would give us our presents from our Aunt Cassie to open on Christmas Eve. They would always be new nightgowns. This was so we would look good in the 8mm movie Mom would make of us the next morning, the one with us squinting and covering our eyes to protect them from the bright floodlights she had on her camera. Fun memories!

      I always tried to get my Mom to do matching PJs on Christmas - the closest I got was as a teenager I bought everyone new pajamas to open on Christmas Eve (that each person would like and wear again) and we wore the new ones Christmas morning. Now I'm lucky to push my significant other out of bed to open presents before noon :) lol
