Early in November, Kathy Woods calls a family meeting to discuss the season’s pressing question: Matching Christmas pajamas in stripes or solids?
The routine began casually enough about five years ago, Woods said, but has become an annual holiday tradition that includes her three children, her dog and sometimes her mother and sister. (Her husband, however, declines to participate.)
“It’s like my big challenge every Christmas: Can I get everybody to put on these matching pajamas and sit still for a photo?” said Woods, who lives in Teaneck, N.J. “If I can, it’s a good year.”
