A few years ago we visited my Cousin Lori and her family around Christmas and they shared a holiday tradition with us that I think is brilliant. Basically, each year when they unpack their holiday decorations, they wrap up all their Christmas books. Then on Dec. 1 they give their children a new Christmas book along with a pair of Christmas PJs.
Then, each evening until Christmas, their children get to unwrap another Christmas book. The books are enjoyed throughout the season and then packed away with the Christmas decorations to be enjoyed the next holiday.
We started the tradition with about 8 books and have built up to about 15 Christmas books. It is a fun way to rediscover Christmas books each season and count down to Christmas.
