Christmas Cheer

IMG_2867.JPGI love Christmas.  So does the cat.

 

Christmas (in my opinion) is the best time of the year.  Christmas carols fill the air, the fireplace runs warm and bright, under the Christmas tree is getting full of presents.  (And cats.)

 

I like reading Christmas stories.  Some of my favorites are:

 

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson.

The Herdman kids lie, and steal, and smoke cigars (even the girls).  They also talk dirty, cuss their teachers, and take the name of the Lord in vain.  The last place anyone expects to see them is church.

No one is prepared when the Herdmans storm Sunday school and take over the annual Christmas pageant.  Before anyone can stop them, they’re plotting revenge on Herod, and burping the baby Jesus.  They’ve got the whole town up in arms.

How the Herdmans turn a series of disasters I to what everyone agrees is the best Christmas pageant ever, is a hilarious, touching, and unforgettable tale from a beloved storyteller.

Favorite quote:  “So that year my father went… to see his bathrobe, he said.”

 

And the Advent books by Arnold Ytreeide are also really good!  There are four in total.  This is the first one we read.

Then there’s Christmas trees.  Personally, I like big ones.  REALLY big ones:

Talk to y’all later, and Merry Christmas!

    JOTHAM”S JOURNEY!!! That was one of my favorite Christmas book! Mom did a read aloud to us kids a few years ago and I loved it! Glad to see that someone else thought it was cool!

    My family LOVES Jotham’s Journey and all of the other ones that follow. We actually read that one this year!

      We’re still working through it. But we have read it before, so not quite so much suspense!

        It’s always full of suspense for us! My dad reads it to us and stops in the suspenseful moments to ask what we think. Of course, only my older brother and I remember most of it, since we rotate Jotham, Bartholomew, Tabatha, and Ishtar. We always cheer when Datcha is finally dead “again”. 😂
