12 Days of Christmas Traditions: Christmas Books and DVDs

This tradition started to help the younglings wait just one more 'sleep' until Christmas. They were always so good and so patient about waiting for Christmas morning to open their gifts but you could tell that they were barely holding it together. We decided to allow them to open just one thing to take the edge off. It evolved into getting a new Christmas book or DVD for the family each year to add to our collections.
All our Christmas books sit in this huge basket on our living room fireplace hearth. The younglings read through all the kids' books each year and I enjoy looking through the decorating books myself.
Some of our favorites are:
The Christmas Story According to Luke
The Crippled Lamb
The First Christmas
When Christmas Came

The Sweet Smell of Christmas
Christmas in the Manger
The Legend of the Candy Cane

Stories of Christmas Carols
Celebrating a Christ-Centered Christmas
Simply SenseSational Christmas
Christmas Comfort and Joy

We also enjoy watching Christmas movies together throughout the season. I didn't take pics because our DVDs are all organized into Ikea Kassett boxes.
Our 'must see' flicks include:
Veggie Tales: The Star of Christmas; The Little Drummer Boy, St. Nicholas, It's a Meaningful Life, and The Toy That Saved Christmas (Veggie Tales Christmas Collection)

Barbie in the Nutcracker
Barbie in A Christmas Carol

White Christmas
A HolidayAffair
Borrowed Hearts
Holiday in Handcuffs
The Christmas List
Snow and Snow 2: Brain Freeze
Mrs. Miracle
Christmas Lodge
Christmas Child
The Santa Clause (1, 2, and 3)
The Nativity Story

It's fun to pull out books and movies that are special to this time of year. It seems like we have a lot to choose from too!
