Christmas Book Tradition

Image found here

My sister has a great advent tradition in her family. Her in-law family exchange children's christmas books each christmas. This tradition has happened for many years and so they have quite the collection of christmas stories.

At the end of each christmas season my sister wraps all of the christmas books and puts them away for next season. Each season she pulls them out (so easy...already wrapped) and places them under her tree. They do a countdown to christmas with books. So each child takes a turn each night unwrapping a book and reading it as a family. What a fun family activity.

If you don't have a lot of christmas books (like us) you can put several on hold at your local library. Pick them up, wrap them (or not) and have plenty of holiday books to read this season.
