This christmas pajama post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are 100% my own.
It all started many years before I was born: a sweet little Christmas Eve package, wrapped up with love, was nestled under holiday decorations containing a very special pair of pajamas for my Mom. That yearly holiday package came each Christmas Eve no matter what means the family had, and brought such joy with it. It eventually became a pajama tradition, with a new and different pair being opened year after year; and the tradition was passed down to a new (my!) generation. Each year of my childhood, I remember seeing my own Christmas tag dangling from the edge of the glossy paper gift bag: “To Lindsey, From Mom and Dad.” My younger brother had an equally exciting bag all his own. Each year he and I were given a new pair of warm, fun pajamas to wear on a chilly Christmas Eve night.
This was all years and years before viral videos about holiday sleepwear, Pinterest pictures advertising Xmas eve gifts or matching family getups. It was an old tradition for our family, and one that I’m continuing with my own young children. For the last 4 years, Red has had a pair of Christmas pajamas waiting for him each Christmas Eve, and this year Scarlett will “open” her first pair, too. I’m already smiling just thinking about it. I want to make this tradition special for them, too; something they look forward to doing each holiday season!
Coming downstairs on Christmas morning to a warm fire, our favorite music, and the magic Santa has left is an everlasting memory for me. I get to re-live it once a year, and now that our family is complete, it’s going to be extra special! I’m happy that my local Carter’s store has soft, coordinating pajamas for my munchkins. Just look at how cute Red and Scarlett are reading a new bedtime story!

Did you know Carter’s is America’s favorite PJ brand? And it’s no wonder with their super-awesome prices and safety features. Having a new baby in the house again, I’m reminded about all the things I hate in children’s clothing and seeking out the options and features that I love. Like zipper tabs. Those tiny pieces of fabric and snaps that keep the zipper pull down and away from Scarlett’s soft baby neck. I had no idea it was so important to me until I didn’t have them…
Carter’s also has the largest assortment of children’s pajamas up to Size 12, with 1, 2, 3 & 4 piece options. That means even though Scarlett and Red are different genders, ages and sizes, I can still get them color coordinating holiday pajamas to make our Christmas that much more magical.
How are you celebrating a Christmas tradition with your family?
