I love discovering what special traditions others take part in around the holidays. And, of course, my mind always goes to books.
So, let’s chat about and reading Christmas traditions you have!
Let’s Discuss: What Are Your Reading Christmas Traditions?
My questions for you:
- Do you read Christmas-related stories during the holidays?
- Are they classic books like A Christmas Carol or Little Women or are they just Christmas-themed?
- Do you read anywhere special for Christmas – like by the fireplace, a cabin, your relative’s house?
- Or, if you don’t have any reading traditions, what other Christmas traditions do you enjoy?
Although I don’t typically read Christmas related books or stories during the holidays, I do try to re-read a favorite book during my down-time, one that reminds me how I fell in love with reading in the first place. Books like the Harry Potter series (obviously), Anne of Green Gables, Tuck Everlasting (such a great book!), The BFG, A Wrinkle in Time, etc.
Ever since I got the Harry Potter Lego Wii game (SO MUCH FUN!!!), I’ve been meaning to re-read my favorite story about a special castle where wizards and witches learn about magic…
As it’s currently 55 degrees in Florida, and people are bundled up like we’re experiencing sub-zero temperatures, no, I personally do not have a fireplace or snow to enjoy/shovel. I just sit on my comfy couch per usual, turn on the fan and pretend I live in a colder climate.
For regular holiday traditions, I always set up and decorate the Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. DONE! Plus, my husband and I participate in a Secret Santa with his family every year. Have you heard of Elfster? It has made the whole process easy and way more fun…as in, we get things we want now.
As long as I’m with my family during Christmas, nothing else matters. Like, last year having a bad day and opening my gifts a week before Christmas day…or something like that.
Please tell me: what are your reading Christmas traditions?!
