The Night Before Christmas

In my family I have tried to keep up this tradition of reading this story to my children when I tuck them in on Christmas Eve. Does anybody else?

I know there are many different versions of the story out there....well the same story but different pictures and authors so I usually end up reading 4-5 different books of all the same story... its fun though and the kids seem to enjoy it.

Sometime during the Christmas season we end up reading a version of it.

Ok so I voted no...but now I remember that at my husband's uncle's house...we do listen to him read it. So I guess I should change my vote to yes because we go over there about every other year for Christmas eve.

Well the way it goes down in our house is that we do read it on Christmas Eve, but we've already read it a couple of times this season too. And that's pretty much how it's gone the past couple of years.. :)
