A Treasured Christmas Book Collection

The Santa Video>

Christmas is one of my favorite times of year! When my husband and I welcomed our first child to the family we wanted to start family traditions that would last throughout childhood. Each Christmas we purchase one special, usually hardbound, Christmas book. Books added to the collection over the years have included telling of the birth of Christ, the Night Before Christmas, traditions from around the world. Classics, funny children's tales are all apart of the collection. With the birth of each of our children the tradition has continued. Each Christmas we are able to dig out a wonderful array of books to share throughout the season. I also love displaying the books throughout the house in baskets, on mantels, on top of the piano... so that guest and family may share in a special reading as well. One day I hope that our children will carry on the tradition... for now we have established a wonderful, snuggle up with a blankie, sit on momma and daddys lap kind of tradition.

I know of a family that does a similar tradition. As an added bonus, each year in the back of the book on the blank pages, the parents will write special things that happened during that Christmas season and date the year. Now those kids have a Christmas book from each Christmas and a mini journal for each as well.
