Santa brings an ornament with his name and the year written on it each Christmas.

Not really...

It's tradition (since I was a kid) that we open our jammies on Christmas Eve. That way, we're wearing nice new jammies for pictures on Christmas morning.

We always had to get up and get dressed and eat breakfast before opening any gifts. We did last year, but now the kiddo likes to go downstairs right when he gets up! This morning he got up and went down there and then later when I went to check on him the light was on-I asked him how he turned it on-he had moved my scrapbooking box with paper in it (about 3 inches tall) over to the lightswitch to get it on! What a stinker!!

We have a couple. Everyone gets an ornament before xmas, when we put the tree up. We don't do the jammie thing, but there's always fruit in our stockings. Mmmm, fruit. And, my dad gets the same gift every year, the Budweiser Holiday Stein for whatever year it is. It's been that way since I was born.

My dad has them all the way back to 1980 (the year they started). We got *the* last one a couple days ago. We couldn't find it, couldn't find it, couldn't find it. I nearly had a stroke, and Adam almost leapt across the aisle at the one we did find.

We always get it at Meijer, but this year, not even an empty display like that used to have them but were out. We found one in the center aisle by accident and Adam about killed someone for it. lol.

I was going to start the jammies thing but the ones that I bought Peyton for this year are way too warm. Poor kid was sweating in them so I had to switch his clothes.

Nope, no traditions here since we don't celebrate Christmas at this point.

We always do jammies on Christmas Eve. Everyone gets a new pair to open and then wear to bed.
