It’s no secret that my family loves books and Christmas books are no different.
Each year our collection of Christmas books grows. We discover old classics, enjoy the familiar, and laugh with the antics of the various Christmas characters we read about.
This year I decided to wrap 24 Christmas books to countdown the days of Christmas. We always read stories before bed, and so every night my children open a new Christmas themed book to read. It’s fun to see what book they will unwrap. I think this is a tradition we’ll enjoy for many years to come.
I thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite Christmas books – 25 to be exact. Many of these titles we own, but many of them we check out from the library. I love filling our home with beautiful pictures and words.
