It’s Writer Wednesday and we’re opening the door to the holidays….
Twas the night before Christmas. . .
And all through the house was a land of Legos and a big stuffed mouse. My sons trailed behind me, reluctant they were, to head off to bed before Santa was a blur.
I pulled out a surprise, a book they held dear. Everyone crawled into bed and lay ready to hear. . .
I read to them softly to lull them to sleep and in came the dog to find her place in the heap. Next came the cat who was up in a leap. And we all snuggled down in a warm and cozy cuddle anxious to step into the story . . . TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS of Santa’s great night.
Every night we all climbed into one bed and read. Sometimes a single book, sometimes two, but always at Christmas we read our three favorites.
Do you have favorite holiday books you read at Christmas? A favorite tradition?
Please share them with us in the comments below and we’ll have new stories to read and memories to share. Also, take a moment to check out my fellow Firebirds and their favorite holiday books. . . – Natalie Meg Evans, Lauren Christopher, Sharon Wray, Kay Hudson, and Tamra Baumann
Stop by next month when we share our holiday decor!
