Virtual Advent Tour 2010 - A favorite Christmas story

Christmas truly is my favorite time of the year.  There is something magical about this time.  The lights, the decorations, the ornaments, a child's excitement that Santa is coming, snow on the ground.

One of my favorite memories from my childhood involves Saturday mornings.  We'd all pile onto my parents bed and sing Christmas carols before we got up for the day.  The one of the last things that we would sing is "Twas the Night Before Christmas".  Now, years later, I am reading that book to my girls and my brother reads it as part of our Christmas Eve tradition.


  1. I love your tradition--except for the waking up the parents part LOL! Merry Christmas!

  2. Great idea take a piece of one of your favorite memories and carry it on with your kids. Merry Christmas.

  3. Lovely to remember and repeat with your own children. It reminds me of that song "Coming Around Again". Happy Christmas to you.

  4. It's so nice to carry on the things you loved about your childhood.
