we do too, it always their Christmas PJ's,

I got the tradition from my best friend who did that growing up, so i started with my kids, the first few years it wasnt a big deal to them cuz they were so young, but 2 yrs ago they got ALL exctied they got to open a present early, and my 7yr old, at the time 5 started crying cuz all she got was pj's. lol then last year, before they opened it they said, "its just pj's again" so they are catching on, hopefully they will appreciate it as they get older, lol

It used to be a family event...mom would make hot apple cider...we would put xmas music on and decorate the tree together...DH will not participate at all...so its different in our home now.
