Christmas books and traditions

Last night was a rare night with just me and the boys. After watching Pumpkin Chunkin, I realized we hadn’t delved into our book basket, one of my favorite Christmas traditions.  I’ve been collecting them since Little Miss’s first Christmas, so some are tattered, and some have had to be purged. But we’ve gathered a small but well-loved collection of books.


Last night, the boys picked two versions of the same story: A Creature Was Stirring (af) and a beautiful edition of The Night Before Christmas (af) with paper cut-outs.  A Creature Was Stirring is a delightful take on the classic poem. Juxtaposed with the original words, a little boy narrates his naughty night-time wanderings. The girls actually memorized it last year and performed it as a duet.

The cut-paper edition is really more of a display book, and my heart tends to skip beats as the boys reach not too gentle hands to teach the delicate art. But it is so lovely. And even display books are meant to be read. Just. . . gently, okay?

    The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. It is a must read. I recommended it on the fly to a patient of mine( elderly couple wife in hospice) and they could not put it down. They are getting it for their grandchildren.

      A classic! I love the movie, too. I think we listened to that audio book going to my parents one Christmas, but we haven’t read it since. And I think we own it!
