Merry Christmas Eve!!!

Hi everyone! Its Christmas Eve, and I wanted to be sure to post my Holiday Traditions Festival post for the day, since Christmas Eve is conveniently located on a Monday!

When I was a little kid, for as long as I can remember, every Christmas Eve my Dad would read our Little Golden Book version of "The Night Before Christmas" to my brother and me. My dad used to have long hair in back, and I would often sit behind him and comb his hair while he read to us. (And if he was really lucky, I would add some of my own bsrretts and ribbons to his hair!)
Here's a picture of my dad, many years later. He doesn't have much hair left, but we still have the Little Golden Book! I hope someday he'll be able to read it to my children on Christmas Eve!



Merry Christmas, everyone!
And to all, a good night.

Oh I love that tradition! How great that you still have the book (and I love picturing you adding barrettes to your dad's hair!).

Merry Christmas to you!
