May I pose a question here, that may not quite fit in? Do any of the FL readers have Christmas books they go back to every year? There are lot of favorite movies for Christmas, but are there some books that you like to re-read come Christmas?
I just ordered Merry Christmas, Mr. Baxter, by Edward Streeter, from amazon, having read it a couple of years ago. It's just starting to become an annual event for me.
I also pull out Peter Spier's Christmas! to sort of kick off the season.
When the kids were little, at some point I would go to the Gospel of Matthew and read them the events surrounding the visit of the Magi, and speculate on what that must have been like.
