Favorite Christmas Book & Movie, Plus a Free Christmas Download (Favorites Friday)

If you've never read The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, then this is the year to buy the book and share it with your family. It's a hilarious and touching look at what the story of Christmas can do for a rag-tag group of hooligans. We read it as a family every year and it never gets old. I always get a bit teary at the end.

There's also a delightful movie that is just as wonderful.

And speaking of traditions, a few weeks ago I created a book of 25 true Christmas stories. Many of them are from LDS Church magazines, so there is a fair bit of LDS culture in them -- we call each other "brother and sister so-and-so," and there is one story about tithing and a few others about missionaries, for instance. The last two days include the story of Christmas from the Book of Mormon (what was happening on the American continent at the time of Christ's birth) and the Bible.

You can download a Word document with the stories to create your own 25 Days of Christmas book by clicking on this link. Enjoy!

I've been looking for a way to do something each day of December when I came across this blog. I'm excited to incorporate your book in our family's twenty-five days of christmas.

Thank you for sharing this, Christina! It was so fun to find you on Facebook, and I just discovered you have a blog, so it will be fun to catch up with you this way, too. It's been a long time since our Oakridge seminary days! =)
