There'll Be Scary Ghost Stories

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

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?

  1. On the 23rd, we have Nite of 1,000 Lites. We get in the car and drive around listening to Christmas music until we have counted 1,000 homes with Christmas lights. This year it took about three hours. We have a lot of traditions but that's the one we do on Adam's Eve. :)

  2. We've never celebrated Christmas Adam. Maybe we'll have to start. =] Merry Christmas, Lara. Wishing you lots of love!

  3. We celebrated Christmas Christmas Eve yesterday too! With Seafood---it's tradition.

    Merry Christmas sweet friend!
