This family's 25-year Christmas morning tradition is beyond sweet

This is too sweet not to share.

A proud dad has spent the past 25 years video taping his kids coming down the stairs every Christmas morning – from the time they can barely toddle to their awkward teen years and beyond.

His son, Nick Confalone, has edited together the home movies into an ode to holiday joy, soundtracked by Vince Guaraldi’s “Christmas Time is Here.” He posted the video on youTube with the comment: “Every year, our dad would tape us coming down the stairs. This is a compilation of all the videos I could find. Relatives and pets grow up and disappear, and new extended family members appear in their place.”

The video captures all the excitement of Christmas morning and how that evolves as families grow and change over the years.

Watch and prepare to feel all fuzzy:

Do you have any Christmas traditions that you roll out every year? 

If Santa saw these photos, he’d say ha-ha-ha instead of ho-ho-ho. From taking the annual holiday family photo in the nude to Santas with black eyes and a daddy in a onesie – these holiday cards are hilarious. And cringe-worthy.
