Wonderful Children's Christmas Books
November 15, 2020 by Ramona Morrow
Christmas is my favorite time of the year. Everything about Christmas is special with a magical and wonderous feeling. I love the spirit of Christmas, movies, music, lights, decorations, get-togethers, parties, presents, Santa, and yes, the food. For me, Christmas has always been the best time.
Call me crazy, but I start decorating for Christmas on November 01 and keep the decorations and tree up until Ukrainian Christmas is over around January 21. I figure when you go to all the trouble trimming the tree and putting up decorations making the house look oh, so beautiful, smelling wonderful, and having a warm and cozy feeling; why take them down before you have to.
Jamie and I started our own family Christmas tradition. At the end of November, Jamie and I would go to the local bookstore to get new children's Christmas books we haven't read before. If they were on sale I would buy lots, up to twelve or more books to last until Christmas. On December 01, I would surprise Jamie with his Advent calendar. Every day he was to open the door to that corresponding date. If the day was December 12, Jamie opened up the twelfth door on his calendar retrieving a small treat for that day. Just before Jamie went to bed, he picked out a Christmas book he wanted me to read him. We did this every day until Christmas Eve. After Christmas was over Jamie had to pick three books to keep and the rest we gave away so other boys and girls less fortunate than us could have these books for their next Christmas to read.
