It’s the final installment of the 5 Days of Advent Traditions for Catholic Families. I’m sharing 25 magical books you’ll want to savor this month – a great way to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the secular holiday season. And don’t forget – you’ve still got time to enter the fantastic Advent Prize Pack Giveaway from Faith and Fabric, Catholic Box, and Sweet Little Ones.
My dad loved books – holding them, sharing them, reading them. One Christmas, in homage to his East Texas roots, he picked up a copy of The Cajun Night Before Christmas. He held us rapt; not once did his accurate Cajun twang stumble over the dialect.
It’s because of my father that books have a special place in our home, too. Listening to him read aloud was magical, especially during Advent. The stories he chose always directed our hearts toward the birth of Christ, and many of the favorites I share with you today are books my father introduced.
Here are 25 magical titles, one for each day of the month in December.
