Grandma’s Christmas Tradition


I wanted to share with you one of my favorite traditions that my Mother does!  For the last 10 years every December she has given us kids (and our families) a new Christmas Book.  The book is something that would generally be one that we would want to sit down with our families and read each Christmas Season!  Books that have a meaningful story – something that will touch our hearts!

I actually keep these books in my entertainment center year around!  I don’t necessarily read them anytime – pretty much just during the Christmas Season.  But, I do find myself noticing them while dusting or something and it makes me smile!  Reading is one of my Mother’s passions!  And, although I don’t find myself being able to read as much as I would like to, I know that it is something that has been instilled inside me and that I want to pass onto my children as well.  I want my boys to have a passion for reading like my Mother!

I thought I would list the books that she has given to us over the last 10 years, so that if this was a tradition you would like started in your family, you would have a great starting point!
