My Favorite Christmas Tradition

This is going to be a super short post, but since one of my favorite Christmas traditions is book related, I wanted to share.

Every year on Christmas Eve, after we’d eaten Christmas dinner, gone to mass, and gotten into our pajamas, we would all pile on the couch and my dad would read us The Night Before Christmas. Even if we’d gone to midnight mass and it was super late, even if some of us were in high school, even if my Dad was almost falling asleep at the end of each sentence, we always read it. And I love that that was our tradition!

Our favorite version of the book is this one (which I still own).

We also had a mouse family version similar to the one below, which we read if we couldn’t find the other one. (We were all avid readers, so books roamed our house quite a bit. :))

I hope you and your families and friends have a wonderful Christmas!
