We are in the middle of the Christmas season. As we search out the perfect gift for each of our loved ones, we try to ensure that we stay within our budgets. We also know that the season is more than gifts under the tree. We are celebrating the birth of the Son of the Most High God. That celebration should happen with or without a large amount of money. One way to celebrate without breaking the bank is reading a Christmas book.
Almost all kids enjoy a good Christmas story. Sit down with them. Let them pick out the book, and watch the magic of Christmas come alive across the pages.
My kids enjoy any book with snow, any books with pop up or open up pages, and any books featuring their favorite characters. In addition, I print out many FREE advent stories and include them in our Christmas to reading adventures;
Free 25 Bible Verses to Countdown to Christmas Day
Free Christmas Bible Advent Tree
As a side note, I have begun working with Literati Kids book subscription service. You can pay $9.95 per month and have a set of 5 books customized to your children’s age group delivered to your doorstep. You keep the books you want at discounted prices and send back the ones you do not with pre-paid shipping in the box they came in. Here is my Literati book subscription link which gives you a discount on your first order.
With or without a book club subscription, reading is the way to go this holiday season. We have found books at the library, at thrift stores, at the end of the holiday season, etc.

“We also know that the season is more than gifts under the tree. We are celebrating the birth of God Almighty Lord Jesus Christ himself” That celebration should happen with or without a large amount of money”…..
Yes Britany. Christmas is more than just Gifts under the tree. Its a celebration of “The Birth of God Almighty Lord Jesus Christ” and hence its also sharing with others who might be in need. And not just not the value in money.
Reading at anytime is very good. Expands one mind and open doors to so much of knowledge. Ideal time too as there can be so much of sales and reduced things in the shops and to be creative and to be extra kind, generous and friendly to make the maximum of the festive season 🙂 ❤ 🙂

I never want people to feel as though they cannot celebrate the birth of Jesus because they do not have the money. We truly enjoyed our Christmas season.
