Since it is December 1st, it is time to start our Christmas countdown. Everyone has a different way of counting down or advent prior to Christmas. I shared with you yesterday my goal to read one chapter from St. Luke per day up until Christmas Eve.
Another tradition my family has had over the years, is our 24 Days of Christmas book. This is a collection of Scripture, song and story to be read each day prior to Christmas. This is something my kids looked forward to when they were younger. We would gather around in the evenings and take turns reading from the book.
Recently, I retyped all the stories and songs and made a book for family to enjoy as a Christmas gift. I got it laminated and bound. I think it turned out quite nicely. I have two versions of this book that I compiled. I have the LDS version, which features some of the primary songs from our children's group and some scriptures from the Bible and Book of Mormon, and I have the non LDS version which features traditional Christmas songs and scriptures strictly from the Bible, since many of my family are not LDS.
I would like to offer as a gift to you, the PDF of my compilation so you can put together your own 24 Days of Christmas. This is not something I can sell because I am not the author of the stories or songs. (Well, I am the author of one of the Christmas stories). If you are interested in a copy of the 24 Days of Christmas book, you can download them from the links to google drive.
Non LDS Version or both.
Let me know what you think of them here in the comments.
