Christmas Tradition # 10: Christmas Books and Book Tree

I’ve loved books as long as I can remember. And Christmas books are some of my favorites. I have fond memories of my mom, my dad and my Pineview grandparents reading Christmas stories to me. And I loved reading to my children. When my children were little, I bought a basket and tied it up with a red plaid ribbon and filled it with Christmas books, all the usuals, ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, A Christmas Carol, Gift of the Magi, A Charlie Brown Christmas, etc. I liked this Christmas book basket so much, the next year, I prepared a similar basket for all my kith and kin families. And then for many years afterward, I gave my families a new book for their basket.

My kids have always loved Tolkien’s Letters from Father Christmas. It has pullout letters. One of my favorite books was one sold by The Metropolitan Museum retelling the traditional Biblical Christmas Story and illustrated with beautiful art.

Maybe 10 years ago, I saw online a Christmas book tree. I now use my books for a small tabletop tree. And I choose a topper. In recent years, it’s been Jane Austen, her birthday is December 16, and Pigpen. This year, I’ve chosen a Polar Express Snowglobe.

What are your favorite Christmas books?
