A Christmas Carol out loud to the kids. That is a good one, but a little over the heads of the younger children. Last year we got the audio version of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. It is a really cute story and although it is written to younger audience, it has appeal even for adults with a great message about the transforming power of Jesus. A friend mentioned that she reads this book every year because she loves it and I thought that it might be a great tradition to read it aloud in our home. So, I made the investment in it (which is a big deal for me because I rarely by books but instead rely on the library). So, far the younger kids are really enjoying it. I hope to do a little each day and time it to finish just before Christmas.
So, do you have any Christmas book traditions in your home?
Here are a few of the Christmas books we have collected over the years:
