Should your family wear matching Christmas pajamas?
I got to admit. With 3 kids having different personalities, wearing matching Christmas pajamas for the family was not a thing.
That was, until the pandemic hit.
With nowhere to spend the holidays but home and seeing my Instagram feed with pictures of my friends and their kids on cute LazyOne family matching Christmas pajamas, I decided to start a family tradition to wear matching pjs, because why not!
And that seems to be my rule now and some sort of unsolicited advice I tell my friends.
If you are on the fence (like I was) and can’t decide on why you should be wearing matching family jammies, here are my five reasons why you should:
It can make you feel like you’re in a warm cozy movie scene with your family.
You may have seen all those heartwarming Christmas movies with the family wearing matching jammies. It sure would make your kids think they are in some heart-melting Christmas movie scene and channel their inner Christmas spirits if they are wearing perfectly coordinated jammies.
Matching PJs is a fun and easy way for your family to bond.
I don’t know, but wearing matching things make you feel closer. I think it seems more fun when you are with your family watching a Christmas movie, eating Christmas dinner, or playing board games when you are using those cute matching pajamas.
It commemorates your favorite Christmas memory.
Although the previous year was full of one time bizarre memories like not being able to travel (even to the next town!), not being able to go to the malls for Christmas shopping, and not being able to go to Christmas parties (plus having to wear masks and face shields), the memory of wearing family matching pajamas is a Christmas memory my family will cherish forever.
You can do social media shares and look back at these memories in the future.
Wearing matching pajamas make for an ideal photo op. My daughter, who is so active in social media, makes elaborate photo shoots with matching backdrops and props.
It can make tedious activities (like cooking Christmas dinner and watching football) seem more festive.
It is so hard to get into the Christmas spirit when you have to think of the piling laundry you *need* to do, but if you are wearing comfortable jammies that are a perfect matchy-matchy with your kids who are helping to help you out, doing it seems to be more fun!
The holiday season gives us a lot to be grateful for, especially during these trying times. Family is the staple of Christmas, and now, more than ever, is the perfect time to spend time together, wearing matching family Christmas pajamas.
