And while we love seeing what traditions people like Kim and Kanye are building with their families together, like extremely, amazingly excessive Christmas lights, we also love getting a glimpse at just how those traditions started way back when they were kids. Here are some of our fave throwback photos of a time-old tradition 鈥 kids sitting on Santa鈥檚 knee. Only this time, these just happen to be some of your fave celebs as kids.

it's almost xmas 馃巹馃巵

1. Kylie and Kendall Jenner: I would say these two have hardly changed at all, but it also feels like this picture was taken yesterday, so. That said, the Jenner sisters are insanely adorable in their pic with Santa from the year 2000.

2. Sarah Michelle Gellar: We already know she 鈥渟leighs鈥 the Elf on the Shelf game, so why shouldn鈥檛 she rule the Christmas throwback game too? Here she is in an outfit she refuses to comment on besides simply saying, 鈥淚t was the 鈥80s.鈥 All too familiar!

Christmas is upon us and baby Lucy looks thrilled. 馃巹

3. Lucy Hale: Why so glum, chum?! 鈥淐hristmas is upon us and baby Lucy looks thrilled,鈥 she writes in this throwback photo鈥檚 caption. LOL.

The difference one year makes! :)

4. Julianne Hough: Little Jules went from hating Santa to being fully on board in this one-year-later throwback snap. One thing stayed the same, though: Jules looks absolutely adorable in her stylish little black and white outfits!

5. John Stamos: Kids being scared of Santa and crying on his knee is one of the best versions of the Santa pic you can get, and in this one, posted by John Stamos, an exodus seems to be happening. At least he got that good head of hair he wished for!

6. Paris and Nicky Hilton: The Hilton sisters look impossibly chic in their white furs with Santa, and like Kylie and Kendall, have barely changed at all.

no new friends

7. Gigi Hadid: DYING. WE ARE DEAD. Little teeny Gigi with her big ol鈥 cheeks looks more than fine meeting her bearded new pal in the pic that she captioned 鈥淣o new friends.鈥 Did we mention we鈥檙e DEAD?

7. Luna Simone Stephens: And this new pic of Chrissy Teigen and John Legend鈥檚 little girl Luna gets included as an honorable mention and definitely a future classic #throwback. 鈥溾楽he did such a good job! She didn鈥檛 even cry!'鈥 Chrissy sarcastically captioned it. 鈥淲e only share what we want you to see, my loves. Lol.鈥 We鈥檙e so glad they wanted to show us this one.
