Growing up, Christmas was a magical time for me that always ended too soon. The tradition I began with my daughters was to allow them to unwrap one Christmas present on Christmas Eve, which was always a brand new pair of pajamas. They would where these pajamas to bed and kept them on in the morning while they played with their new toys until it was time to visit relatives. It was also a way to have a little bit of Christmas throughout the new year.
