The Christmas Eve Box – A Christmas Tradition

Christmas Eve Box | Perks of Being a JAP |

Since Sadie was little I started a tradition where on Christmas Eve she gets to open one present. Not just any present that she can pick, since those aren’t under the tree yet, but a present that has what she’s come to expect as Christmas Eve goodies – new Christmas pajamas and a new Christmas/Hanukkah book.

This year I found the perfect book – Daddy Christmas and Hanukkah Mama – and the main character’s name is Sadie! It was meant to be and I can’t wait to give it to her.

Her new Christmas pajamas I found at Target – a buffalo plaid nightgown scattered with Minnie Mouse. Sadie LOVES nightgowns so I knew this would be perfect for her.

So, on Friday night I’ll pack these up into a festive little box and Sadie will have a new book to read that night, and cozy new pajamas to wake up in for Christmas morning!

And once she’s asleep Dave and I will wrap all of her presents haha – that’s our little Christmas Eve tradition!

Do you have Christmas Eve traditions?

  1. What a great tradition! Matt and I do our own Christmas on Christmas Eve every year because Christmas Day is so hectic. But I might have to incorporate something like this once Riley gets a little bit older. Love it!

    • We used to do our own Christmas on Christmas Eve too! This year some things got switched around because of family work schedules and Hanukkah so we’re doing our Christmas on actual Christmas Day and then family Christmas on the 26th along with my nephew’s birthday. OH and Hanukkah on the 24th with my family. Going to be a busy few days!

  2. This is darling. Love!
