On the 23rd Day of Christmas. . .

We read a few Christmas stories. 

I bought some new Christmas books this year.  It is always fun to read about Santa and Jesus and talk about the different ways people celebrate Christmas.  Tonight we read three stories:

My Penguin Osbert

Room for a Little One: A Christmas Tale

'Twas the Night Before Christmas

This year at our church Christmas party we also received a bound booklet that was filled with a Christmas story a day for the 24 days leading up to Christmas.  Each day it has a scripture (that progresses through the story of Christ's birth) a Christmas carol, a thought that goes along with the theme of the night, an activity to do, and a Christmas story.  We did not do the whole book, but they are such cute stories and activities.  I am keeping it and will try to do it next year.  It might make deciding what to do a little easier.
