confession: I am the kind of gal who moves right onto Christmas once Halloween is over. I love Christmas. Love it.
It is not that I dislike Mr. Claus. I just wanted our kids to know, really know, the reason we celebrate the Christmas season. I did not go around exclaiming SANTA ISN'T REAL! I just tip toed around the subject. I never pushed Santa, I leaned more toward the nativity story. Wouldn't you know, that my oldest daughter would be slightly more obsessed with Christmas than I am. She is giddy about it all...the twinkling lights , fresh baked cookies, Christmas music, tinsel, and of course that included the man who's cheeks were like roses.
My favorite form of Santa definitely has to be T'was the Night Before Christmas. I have most of this poem memorized, and it such a sweet family tradition to read this story every Christmas Eve. Today's post is inspired by MyChronicleBooks they have taken it one step beyond by offering a chance to personalize T'was the Night Before Christmas. I am smitten. I can't even imagine how excited my daughter would be to get a Christmas book with her name in it! Perhaps I might have to get this and have it arrive with our Elf on the Shelf.!?
