The Tenth Day of Christmas
December 23rd: Christmas Eve Eve. Or as my kids like to call it, Christmas Adam. I kind of like that name, and judging from various posts on Facebook today, my kids are not the only ones to call it that.
Anyway, we started a fun tradition for Christmas Adam last year, which is to cuddle up together and watch George C. Scott's A Christmas Carol. Last year, Sophia was very afraid of the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, but tonight she was quite brave. And I think that this time around all of the girls got more out of the story than they did the first time we watched it last year.
What a wonderful story, isn't it? Such a great reminder that "mankind is our business" as Jacob Marley told Scrooge. And that while Christmas is a time to remember Christ and to serve and love our fellow man, that we should keep Christmas in our hearts all year round, just as Scrooge learned to do.
Do you have any Christmas Adam traditions?
