With less than 18 days until Christmas, I had a hard time getting into the groove of the season. I admit, it’s mostly weather-related. Having lived on the east coast for almost all my life, I don’t feel very festive or merry when it’s 80 degrees out and I’m in shorts and flip flops.
As I type this it’s 43 degrees outside and I love it. Our Christmas trees are keeping the house warm and it just feels like December, finally! Ha, and it’s inspired me enough to get back to writing!
A couple of years ago, I shared some of our Christmas traditions in our home. One of the things I mentioned was counting down the days to Christmas was by opening wrapped and numbered books each day. (To save time I re-wrap them while we are putting away the decorations the year before.)
Here’s our current list of books. I’m missing 4 of them because I cannot remember what they are, but I’ll update this post when we open all the books!
Over the years, I’ve cycled books in and out of our collection. I’ll share more about my process next time. If you have a favorite, or think I should include it, please let me know in the comments below!
