I know it seems early, but we have an incredibly busy three weeks coming up, one of them which won't be condusive for any preparations at all, and then BAM!... it's Advent! I have been collecting books all year to mix into our selection of books from years past. I meant to keep a list of the ones we unwrapped and read each day during Advent last year, but I forgot. So, I thought I would record them here before I covered them up with our traditional purple paper. Below is a list of the books wrapped and ready to go. It's a tad incomplete because I started wrapping some before I wrote down the titles. Whoops!
This year, I have enough books to go from the first Sunday of Advent all the way to the Epiphany on Jan. 2nd. Some books' theme correspond to a specific day and some are just old family favorites. The ones for Christmas and the octave following are wrapped in gold paper.
And for the Epiphany...
So, what's in your Advent basket?
