Every family marks the holiday season with various traditions, and one we started when our oldest was born, seven years ago, involves books.
We basically put our own spin on two Christmas Eve traditions – getting to open one present and receiving new pajamas. Every year we give our kids a Christmas book, which they open on Christmas Eve and we read before bed.
When the kids are grown, I plan to give them their little collection of Christmas books so they can share them with their own families.
It’s become something the kids look forward to and in fact, just yesterday they were asking me what books they were going to get this year. As if I would tell!
Do you have any family traditions at Christmas or any other time that include books?
