On Christmas Eve, day 24 of our bookish Advent Calendar, we read The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore and illustrated by Mary Engelbreit. Such a classic poem that many of us can recite by heart. It is a tradition in our house to read this book before the children go to bed.
The illustrations are divine! The vibrant colours and the intricate detail are just perfect for Christmas.
We have put out a bucket of water, some carrots and special flying food (rolled oats with glitter!) for the reindeer. We made a special batch of our Peanut Butter and Choc Chip cookies for Santa and we left him a glass of juice as well. Our sacks are set up in the lounge room waiting for Santa to fill them with presents (that’s if we have been good enough!)
I would like to wish all my readers a Very Merry Christmas. Thank you so much for visiting, commenting and sharing ideas throughout the year. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas day filled with fun (and of course fabulous food) with family and friends.
I am having a short blogging break and will return in a few days with lots of new books and crafting fun. Until then, stay safe and enjoy the festive season.
