Do you find there are little things that you and your family do every year at Christmastime? And if you didn't, it just wouldn't be Christmas? Lots of little traditions that weave themselves together to make it special... Yep, me too.
One of the things I love about Christmas are Christmas stories. We collect another book or two every Christmas. We keep them in a basket, out where anyone in the house can grab a Christmas story, curl up in a chair and get cozy.
Some of my favorite memories have been... reading "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" aloud and then not being able to finish the last of the book because I was crying so hard! LOL Pulling out the old Little Golden books of Rudolph, Frosty and Santa's Toy Shop and feeling like I'm 5 years old again looking at the pages...and last year when our little toddler nephew Matthew was here -- he was crazy for Frosty the Snowman! We read that book over and over, and we danced and sang the song together endlessly! :-)
Does your family have favorite Christmas stories/books? Please share! (Remember, I'm collecting!)
One more thing -- here's a Christmas Book and Activity Advent at the Crafty Crow blog. You get a Christmas book to read and an activity to do every day. Love it!
