Since tomorrow is December 1st and the countdown to Christmas will begin, I wanted to share with you a Christmas tradition that takes place at our home. As a former teacher and lover of books, I have a plethora of Christmas books. So at the end of November, I pick out 25 of my favorites and I wrap them up in Christmas wrapping paper and put them in a basket.
Each night of December, Sean (and Luke this year) selects a book to unwrap and read that evening. The Night Before Christmas is reserved for December 24th and is distinguished from the others by special wrapping.
Sean has adored this activity for several years now and I love seeing his face as he is reunited with favorite Christmas stories from years past. I'd love to hear what Christmas traditions you and your family share. Happy weekend, everyone!
