Sunday Book Club: Bookish Christmas Traditions

Posted December 4, 2016 by meezcarrie in Christmas, Sunday Book Club / 17 Comments


Good Sunday Morning to you, my dear friends!

I decided I needed a wintry edition of the Sunday Book Club graphic. We’ll return in the spring to the awesome one made for me by the awesome Rachel D. of BookwormMama.

I saw this post on Book Riot this morning about Bookish Christmas Eve traditions. They suggest a dramatic reading of The Night Before Christmas, a holiday book exchange (my personal fave), an impromptu Christmas play, cooking a literary Christmas dish, and creating a bookish scavenger hunt.

Sadly, I have NO bookish holiday traditions. But I want some.

So, I want to know – do y’all have any? Or have you heard of any that you love?

  1. The only book-related traditions we have are kid-related: reading ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (and lately, The Elf on the Shelf) to the children on Christmas Eve and each receiving a book from mom & dad on Christmas morning (something you want (from Santa), something you need, something to wear, something to READ).

    My husband bought me a collection of Charles Dickens Christmas stories many years ago, and I’d like to get into reading one of those at Christmastime.

    No bookish traditions for me either. Though, it seems you might have a new one with a bookish tree 🙂

    The only related bookish tradition we have is that I buy a special hardback Christmas related book for the family. I talked about two of my favorites on my blog last week.

    My favorite Christmas story for kids is Mortimer’s Christmas Manger by Karma Wilson and illus. by Jane Chapman. Love, love, this story and it chokes me up every time I read it. It’s about a little mouse who moves into the stable until he hears the Christmas story on Christmas Eve and feels bad about moving Jesus out every night. And then he finds a sweet replacement home.

  4. Not sure this qualifies as bookish but my husband’s family always read Luke 2:1-20 on Christmas Eve. We continued the tradition with our kids.
