Christmas Tradition: 24 Days of Books

by This is Carrie on December 4, 2008

One of our favorite traditions has begun.
This year we added “Olive the Other Reindeer” and “When Santa Fell to Earth”.

I am glad you have Olive the other reindeer, it’s one of my faves.

We added some too, but now I have wrapped them up so I am not sure what they are, but one is by Kate DeCamillo… looked good.

We started a tradition similar to this when it was first posted on Tales. It’s become one of my favorite things about Christmas. We just added “Great Joy” to our collection this year. I think that might be the one that Kage mentioned above. The illustrations are beautiful.

Saw this on Tales also and started doing it. Instead of wrapping the books, I made slips of paper with the books on them and just put them in our Advent calendar. Seems to be working really well for us along with a small ornament for each night. Thanks for the idea – it is an awesome one.

Oh, we do this too! One of my favorite things my mother always did was pack away the Christmas books with the decorations. That way, they were a special treat and a surprise when the boxes came out of storage. We’ve just added a pop-up book that the kids are nuts about!
