Books are a HUGE part of our life, and Christmas books are no exception. We love to read. I started collecting Christmas books even before I had kids and each year it has grown, as we have added to the collection. The picture I am sure looks overwhelming, but we honestly read just about ALL of those books and sometimes many more times then just once each season. Each kid of course has favorites that they want read over and over. Family time is important to us, so we include reading and don’t think you can ever be to old to be read to:).
So here is my list of Christmas Books. Although we do not do Santa as in him bringing gifts, we do enjoy the fictional stories and we also talk about the real St Nicholas. Some books I have included are great for older kids and adults. ( Affiliate Links included)
