Having a holiday tradition can make Christmas just a little bit more enjoyable. Whether it’s a family Christmas exchange where you steal all of the good gifts or an epic 5,000 calorie feast, it really ties the holidays together and makes this time of year feel special. This family took their Christmas tradition to the next level… and we love it (although, the mall Santas might not be too thrilled). They have been doing it for 34 years, and it just keeps getting better.

The tradition started out innocently enough.

There’s nothing like seeing your children grow up, even if they can’t fit on Santa’s lap anymore.

And finally, they have a reason to sit on Santa’s lap: their own children!
