Every Christmas Eve, my parents and I would put on our best tacky holiday-themed pajamas, hop in the car, and drive around looking at holiday lights on houses and in the town square while listening to holiday music. We'd usually wear matching ensembles, until my Dad started wearing his humorously ugly nightgown with snowmen on it every single year — with a tie — which he still does. This is a tradition I want to begin with my family of three, but maybe not just for Christmas. Thankfully, there are matching Target family pajamas for all occasions now, and even the dog can suit up.
That said, I have a feeling my beagles will not be too happy about this. And potentially neither will my family, to be honest. But don't people have kids to do fun and tacky stuff like this? Otherwise what's the point, right? I'm kidding. (Sort of.) That may not be the sole reason, but getting to do dorky, cheesy things (on camera) is definitely a perk to having kids. They'll learn to appreciate the memories when they're older, much like I appreciate what my family did every year... enough to want to pass down the tradition, even. I highly recommend doing this every Christmas Eve, if you celebrate. If not, you'll find plenty of other excuses to wear these. And with prices ranging from just $10 to $25, you'll certainly be getting your money's worth.

Even though now we almost have to cut my Dad out of his infamous Christmas nightgown (but let's be real, that's part of the fun), I'm so glad we made this tradition all those years ago and continue to do so. Matching pajamas are the best, no matter what occasion. Trust.
