1. Throw a Christmas Eve party

Every Christmas Eve the family host a big bash at Kris Jenner's LA mansion. We've been keeping our fingers crossed for an invite for some time now, but thus far it's been lost in the post. The Kardashians (or rather their caterers) lay on an enormous festive spread for over 200 friends and family - with a special guest in the form of Santa Claus.

2. Send a family card

Every year the gang get together in varying numbers to create a festive tableau, which usually involves ball gowns, black tie and adorable baby Kardashians swaddled in cloth or wearing mini versions of their parents' ensembles. Take a look at the Kardashian Christmas cards through the years [a href="/fashion/news/is-this-years-kardashian-kristmas-kard-the-most-bonkers-yet-lets-look-back-at-the-family-album">here[/a].

3. Brag about your achievements

The business-savvy fam are always promoting something and this Christmas is brother Kardashian Rob's sock brand, Arthur George. Kourtney tweeted, "Ran into this display while doing my Christmas shopping today at Neiman Marcus!" while proud momanager Kris Jenner rallied her followers with: "OMG!!! Look at the new @arthurgeorgesocks boxed gift sets that I found by @robkardashian that are now available at @neimanmarcus. Perfect gift for all the guys on your list!!!"

4. Put up the biggest tree on the block

When you've got a hallway as big as a normal person's house and a double staircase to fill, you need a big ass tree. Kris revealed this year's Kardashian tree to her brood on Instagram with the message, "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. I love you @khloekardashian @kourtneykardash @kimkardashian @kendalljenner @kyliejenner @robkardashian". Kourtney also appears to have three different trees in her home, which is equally impressive.

5. Give us a flashback

Let's face it, they've been leaders of the Throwback Thursday pack all year round, but on national holidays the Kardashians have really come into their own. Kourtney shared this photo of "An 80s Christmas!", which proves that the siblings have always been a fan of the matchy matchy look.

6. Do NOT forget anyone's stocking

When your family is as large as the Kardashian-Jenners you need to keep track of those stockings. This year the gang will need to add North and Kanye West to the chimney arrangement.

7. Remember it's all about the kids

Kourtney and Scott's children Mason and Penelope have been getting a lions share of affection, but they'll have to share the love with little Nori this year. Khloe told Grazia, "The kids will be so spoiled. We buy them all these toys but they just enjoy playing with the boxes". Very expensive boxes, no doubt.

8. But get the pets involved too

Brody Jenner's puppies - or 'The Boys' as he refers to them - Radar and Tank don't look to thrilled to be wearing Santa hats, but his little sister Kendall is all for it: "OMG. @brodyjenner 's new babies. I just can't handle it". Neither can we!

9. Wear your PJs

Christmas Eve may be a glamorous affair for the Kardashians, but Christmas Day is all about PJs. Matching PJs if you please. Khloe explained, "My mum gives all the family matching pyjamas, and we come back to her house on Christmas morning dressed in them".

10. Show Santa some love

When she's not (allegedly) kissing Harry Styles, young Kendall Jenner is kissing Santa Claus. Just don't tell Bruce!

Think your family goes OTT at Christmas? It's surely nothing compared to the Kardashians who are not known to do things by half. America's first family of reality TV who seem to grow in numbers by the day are Christmas obsessed and celebrate the yuletide with their signature mix of extravagance and high octane glamour - and, as Khloe revealed to Grazia, almost break the bank in the process.

It all kicks off with the Kardashian Christmas card. While most families settle for a simple round robin or generic supermarket job lot, the Kardies go hell for leather (sometimes quite literally) by hiring an official photographer, makeup artists, stylists and crew to assemble and capture various members of the clan for a seasonal tableau showcasing their wealth, beauty and all round majesty.

This year they collaborated with renowned fashion photographer David LaChapelle. The photo was taken on a casino set, which was scattered with mannequin parts and tabloid covers featuring the faces of the family strewn all over the floor. Kim posed next to a dollar sign in an Yves Saint Laurent dress showing off her ample cleavage while Kris Jenner wore a Cleopatra headdress. Natch.

Next up comes the tree, but no ordinary tree. No no no. This tree is in competition with the fir found in the White House, which was delivered by horse and cart, no less. Kris Jenner erects her mighty trunk (ahem) in the hallway of the family home making it the centrepiece of the holiday celebrations and a beautiful addition to the double staircase and regal magnificence of the abode.

Momanager Kris' LA mansion is also where the family host their annual Christmas Eve party - a big ticket event in the Hollywood calendar. Maybe not quite as big as the Oscars, but a Kardie can dream. Khloe revealed exclusively to Grazia, "We have 200 guests. The same Santa Claus that we've been using since my sister Kourtney was a baby comes along and gives out presents." We imagine Christmas Day must be a hung-over affair in the household, but luckily Kris and Bruce aren't the ones slaving away over the turkey. Kourtney adds, "At the party, we get caterers and have turkey and all the trimmings. But on Christmas Day we eat beeshee (an Armenian dish). They are fried pancakes with syrup, honey or sugar. Then we lie around for the rest of the day and eat leftovers."

What better attire to lie around, eat and open presents in than PJs? The family each receives a pair of pyjamas from Kris on Christmas Eve and they return to the house wearing them on Christmas Day. This year it will be a low-key event - just the 15 guests - including Kim, Kanye West, Scott Dissick, Kourtney, Mason, Penelope, Khloe, Bruce, Kendall and Kylie - and of course baby North.

As it's North's first Christmas we imagine she's going to get showered with gifts. Khloe confirmed, "The kids will be so spoiled. We buy them all these toys but they just enjoy playing with the boxes." But she added, "North is an amazing baby. She never cries. She is pretty and looks just like Kim, but she is also serious like Kanye. I can't wait for her to talk". Neither can we!

The little princess has already received plenty of presents from designers such as Charlotte Olympia and Stella McCartney, which Kim showcased on Instagram.

Yes, she really is the best dressed kid on the block.
