Favorite Christmas Stories

Since we watched the Boris Karloff version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas! last night, and since we have been more actively reading our favorite Christmas stories, I thought I would share a few titles here for you to enjoy!  Here are some titles we love:

Of course, How the Grinch Stole Christmas! by Dr. Seuss

And, who could forget Chris Van Allsburg’s The Polar Express?

Reading together with my children is one of my joys during the season…when we take a few moments to slow down, breathe, and cuddle together.  Maybe we will pull out some of these tonight.  We still have a few we haven’t read this season!

Signing off for the holidays…and wishing all of you joy in the season (with whatever you may celebrate or not) and look forward to catching up with you in the new year!  Hugs!
