There is nothing I love more than seeing everyone open their gifts on Christmas morning. It is one of my favorite holidays and every year I try to make it the best it can be. Many people have traditions they do every year on or around Christmas but they are some other important things that may get forgotten this time of year. Things as in not presents but necessary items that may help make Christmas more memorable or still going. This list can help us parents be prepared on December 25th year after year.
The Top Things to Have on Christmas Morning
While we may wake up earlier than normal on Christmas Day and may not be so energized after that 3rd cup of coffee and hours of opening and playing with the gifts. Preparing a big hearty breakfast with the family all together is so enjoyable. Plan to purchase everything you need such as eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, cinnamon rolls, etc. for Christmas morning breakfast.
Yes you might be sick of the Christmas music by now after hearing it begin right after Thanksgiving but it goes so perfectly while opening presents. I tend to put the volume on low so it just sets the mood and is soothing.
There is nothing like getting a new pair of pajamas to wear on Christmas morning. This is a tradition we tend to do with the family where we each get to open up a new pair of pajamas on Christmas Eve night to wear to bed and wake up on Christmas morning with them on. This tradition seems to catching on to others and I find more and more people do this with their family.
Taking pictures is so important every year to keep as memories. I love taking pictures of my kids holding their favorite toys so we can go back and look to see what they got. This is especially great when they get older and see a toy that may turn out to be a collector’s item someday. For instance I have pictures of me as kid with my Cabbage Patch and Strawberry Shortcake dolls. And if everyone is wearing their new pajamas it is a great way to capture the moment as well.
How many times have you heard, “Do we have batteries?” when the kids open their toys. And then the look on your face frantically running around the house trying to gather batteries from the remotes, clocks, etc. hoping to have enough for each toy that needs them. 44% of people do this every year. YIKES! Don’t be that 44% tile that forgets the batteries this year.
Never fear, Energizer is here to save the day! Most toys say “batteries not included” but there is no reason to let that be a buzzkill on Christmas day.
