Christmas was magical for me growing up. I still want to fall asleep to the glowing lights on the decorated tree. Making special holiday moments is exciting for me as a parent. However, with three kiddos, I am finding my time and money tight. I wanted to do fun and exciting traditions, that don’t break my bank and highlight my favorite parts of Christmas.
As much as Christmas is magical to me, so are books. So, this year I was inspired to do a Christmas count down using books. The idea came from another momma blogger – The Sweeter Side of Motherhood. However, I did not have the budget to buy 25 new brand new books! Instead, I decided to head to a few local thrift stores and see what I could find regarding Christmas books. To my surprise, there were tons and many of the places I visited even set aside the Christmas books making it super easy to skim through to pick out what I wanted.
