I love creating new Christmas traditions for my little family of four. For example I have started the tradition of buying Christmas themed pyjamas to open as an extra gift on Christmas Eve.
We go to the Christmas Eve Crib Service at our local church and come back with the whole family for spicy chilli and steaming, crispy jacket potatoes, lots of Christmas telly has to be watched in new Christmas pyjamas.
We also add to our Christmas themed book collection every year so I was thrilled when my Parragon Books review this month is The Night Before Christmas. It has a Father Christmas on the front!
’Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse…”
This month’s book from Parragon books is the Christmas poem by Clement C. Moore. A classic Christmas rhyme which is brought to life with enchanting illustrations with a modern feel from artist Harriet Muncaster.
I loved this colourful book on opening and my son in particular is really enjoying it now he’s old enough to understand everything involved with Christmas.
I wasn’t read this book growing up and I am happy to add it to our Christmas story collection to read to our own children. Anything that creates tradition is a wonderful gift to pass on to our children. I think we’ll read it every Christmas Eve in our new jams.
I have been given this book to review as part of the Book Buddy scheme by Parragon Books, as always all words and opinions are my own.
