When I was little Mom would read The Night Before Christmas to my younger brother and I before tucking us in. Did your parents/guardians do anything similar?
My mom did
Those precious Mommy moments. 😺
What's funny was, my mom would go up to read at church and I'd start to get all relaxed to go to sleep 😂😂
That is funny and sweet.
My parents didn’t read to my brother and I. But I did to my children and to my grandkids.
I’m saddened that your parents didn’t read to you. I am happy that you got to experience that time with your children. It’s a special bonding time. Some of my best memories.
On Christmas Eve, My two sisters and I would always read The Night Before Christmas, the pop-up book. We would take turns reading each page. I always got in a certain place in line so I got all the good lines.
Do you still have that pop up book somewhere?
Do you plan on reading it to your children or keep it as a keepsake?
I dunno. I won't be having children of my own anytime soon, so I guess it's a dust collecting keepsake on my shelf.
Someday it may be a precious keepsake you want to share with your children.
Ah. Thanks for the advice!
Just a thought from an older woman haha
No, but in a way that is one of our Christmas traditions. We have a thirty year (plus) old animated feature that plays the story from a cassette tape while the appropriate windows of the house light and darken in time with it. We play it exactly once a year, late on Christmas Eve, before going to bed.
That sounds really cool.
