One of our most cherished holiday traditions is giving the children Christmas pajamas on Christmas Eve. It was a huge part of how my family celebrated Christmas growing up and I imagine my kids carrying on the tradition with theirs. When given the opportunity to work with Chasing Fireflies to celebrate Easter, I had a lightbulb moment. Let’s celebrate the Christmas pj’s tradition in April with Easter pajamas!
Easter Pajamas Tradition
My idea is to “surprise” the kids with a new pair of Easter pajamas every year on Easter Eve. And, if you doubt Easter Eve is a thing a) you never heard the Marsh children perform the song “It’s Hard to Believe It’s Easter Eve” – the highlight of our annual Easter play (I’m totally not making that up. I made my sister and brothers perform.) and b) your children don’t squeal with delight while anticipating a morning of Easter basket goodies and Easter Egg hunt treasures. So while our childhood holiday song didn’t catch on the way I imagined, I know that my kids do love Easter morning. And anything that makes them that happy, makes me happy. The only thing to make the basket looting, egg hunting and morning giggling happier is matching personalized hip hoppity Easter pajamas.
While my daughter loves being smack dab in the middle of her brothers, she adores her dolls. Adores. When she discovered her beloved American Girl doll would wear matching personalized pajamas, she nearly fainted with excitement. And then she proceeded to talk about how we are a family of six: mom, dad, big brother, sister, little brother and Saige, the American Girl doll.
Chasing Fireflies Easter Pajamas
Chasing Fireflies has a great Easter collection with basket stuffers, decor, clothes and, of course, exclusive personalized pajamas. As one expects with children’s pajamas, the fit is snug but we ordered the typical size the children wear. The pajamas are great quality with top notch stitching on the appliqué and embroidery.
We let the kids wear their pajamas for the purposes of capturing these photos, but I’ve washed, folded and put them away until Easter Eve. They may not be surprised this year, but we’re definitely going to start the matching Easter pajama tradition. I can’t wait to see them smiling and giggling in their matching pajamas on Easter morning.
