On the morning of Christmas Eve, we held a festive storytime to celebrate the upcoming holiday. Everyone wore their pajamas, we made special reindeer hats, and we read stories about Christmas. First we read Little Santa by Jon Agee, about Santa as a very young boy living with his family at the North Pole - until they decided to move to Florida! Bear Stays Up For Christmas by Karma Wilson was about Bear, who decided not to hibernate until after Christmas so he could celebrate with his friends. Last we enjoyed the LEGO version of The Night Before Christmas and marveled at all the imaginative brick creations in the illustrations - even LEGO reindeer!
After stories, it was time for refreshments! Hot chocolate with candy canes! Yum!
