Christmas Book Advent

So the best part about a Christmas advent is that if you don't get it done before December starts, you can always just use it for the 12 days of Christmas and that gives you a couple extra weeks to get it done.

Which is really handy when you find a cute idea like this Christmas Book Advent from Funky Polkadot Giraffe:


She wraps up a Christmas book for each day and they choose one to unwrap and then read it together.  I am going to dig out our Christmas books from the bookshelf and then head to the bookstore to see if I can get enough for the 12 days of Christmas.

We do this. I collect books each year during the day after Christmas sale at the book stores. They are usually 50% off at that time. Some of my favorites include
The Christmas Humbugs (Colleen Monroe)
Little Drummer Boy (Loren Long)
Peek-A-Christmas (Cimirusti?)
and of course The Night Before Christmas.

We do this also, we do it the 24 days up until christmas,on christmas eve we read the story of Christ's birth from the bible. I usually buy my books after christmas when they are on sale. If you need a lot of books all at once I also use some from the library.
