Christmas is Coming

…the most startling thing about this wonderful tree was that hundreds of tapers glittered like stars in its dark branches, and the tree itself, shining with an inner light, invited the children to pick its blossoms and fruits.

The Nutcracker, E.T.A. Hoffman

In the midst of the chaos of 2020 and all that it has brought us, Christmas is still coming. There is true light in the darkness. What joy! So let’s get preparing….

I love clambering into the attic for our big box of Christmas books. It’s such a delight to rediscover old favourites and decide which of the longer chapter books I’ll read to our three children. As well as enjoying lots of Christmas themed picture books during December, we cherish something longer to revisit chapter by chapter as the nights draw in and Christmas gets closer.

Here are some:

Ishtar's Odyssey (Storybooks for Advent) by [Arnold Ytreeide]
