Traditions....at a bargain!

My family doesn't have a lot of holiday traditions, it makes me a little sad.  There are a couple of reasons we are void of tradition: 1. My hubby works in the Hospitality Industry and typically has to work on the holidays and his days off vary from year to year. 2.We have moved around a bit so it was difficult to start a tradition that required nearby people or geographical events. and 3. We haven't always lived near family. We are fortunate now to live about 15 minutes from my mom, but at times we have lived 8+ hours from anyone we really knew and my hubster's parents are living the good life of retirees in the Sunshine state of FL so they are usually not nearby either.  We do have a few traditions that we have started for various holidays, but there is only one that we have done every year, this year will make our 8th!

Christmas PJ's!  Every year on Christmas Eve, usually before we leave for Mass, our kids get to open one gift.  The gift is always Christmas PJ's that they will where to bed that evening.  The last few years the hubster and I have joined in and got festive in new PJ's as well.  Timing is key in this tradition, too early and you are paying too much for the PJ's, too late and you are left with the not so cut choices, especially since I like my girls to match.  If you join in on the whole Christmas PJ craze head on over to crazy8.com for a super sweet deal, 2 piece PJ's for the whole fam for $7.99 each.  A great price for PJ's!  They have a great selection but it is going to dwindle quick so head over and check it out! At this price, you could start a new tradition for your family this year!

Here is a look at one of our Christmases past:
