They don't call the holiday season the most wonderful time of the year for nothing, and for some parents, this means going to some serious effort to make it magical.
As you can imagine, this received quote the reaction on social media, especially as most parents simply opt to get their children advent calendars in December.
While the pianist was, naturally, playing Christmas songs to wake the children up and presumably put a festive spring in their step, the internet thought it was completely over the top.
The reality TV star, 42, hadn't just hired any pianist either, but Grammy-winner Philip Cornish.
She went on to share a video of her children being woken up on her Instagram stories that was captioned: "It's that time of year.
"@Philthekeys comes over every morning to wake my kids up by playing the piano while the mad morning rush is happening to calm their little souls and fill it with beautiful Christmas songs."
Kardashian, who began the tradition last year, said that it helps her children - North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three - calm down before a busy day at school.
However, while the lavish tradition might help the celeb mum with the 'mad morning rush', it's received a mixed reaction from social media commentators.
One Twitter user imagined: "Being rich to the point of paying a pianist to come play to your kids every morning in Dec so they could wake up with a live calm piano… oh to be [Kim Kardashian] [sic]."
"I do this for my children... Admittedly I just set up Alexa to play Christmas songs instead," joked a second.
But not everyone was so kind about the tradition and some slammed the reality star for being out of touch with normal people.
One wrote: "She needs to get in touch with reality!!!"
"I've heard some rubbish in my life, but this is the biscuit or taking the p…" added a second.
A third had a more mixed response, remarking: "The pianist thing is stupid but like easy money for the pianist I guess lol [sic]."
"I don't like it, it looks boring," remarked a fourth of the set up, which included a beige Christmas tree. "Would have looked much better to let kids choose the ornaments and lights, decorating it as a whole family."
All of which begs the question - if you could afford it, would you want woken up by a Grammy-award-winner?
