The Podlings in their new night clothes.
In keeping with our family tradition, the Podlings received new nightwear on Christmas Eve. We have a set pattern for Christmas eve. After tea the Podlings have a bath and then they are given their new pyjamas/nightdress to get into. Then it is supper (hot chocolate and shortbread are a must on Christmas Eve) whilst I read them 'The Night Before Chirstmas', then it is off to bed to wait for Father Christmas. I love traditions. The familiar rituals make family occasions so special.
