It's hard to say when it started, but there's no denying that holiday pajamas are a thing. Colorful, cozy and perfect for gifting, kids' Christmas pajamas are as much a part of the tradition as cookie baking and tree trimming. (At my house, anyway!)

Each year we pick out a pair for each kiddo and wrap them up to open on Christmas eve. Not only does it scratch that itch of opening something early but when they wake you up at 4:30am to open gifts, they're already photo ready. (You, not so much probably. #sendcoffee)

From our favorite matching holiday family pajamas to kid-only styles, we've rounded up some of our favorite cozy looks this season.
