My family is obsessed with books, poems and all things literary, so as a child I spent every Christmas Eve listening to my mother read Pigs at Christmas—a classic story about a family of pigs who prepares for the holidays by getting a tree, decorating their home and baking burnt blueberry binkies for Santa. The book is no longer in print, but we still cherish reading it every year.
If your family wants to start a new literary tradition for the holidays, try reading one of these classic Christmas stories in online format tomorrow night. Or you can always order a vintage copy of Pigs at Christmas—I promise you won’t regret it!
Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol
O. Henry’s The Gift of the Magi
Clement Clarke Moore’s “A Visit from St. Nicholas”
Also, don’t forget to track Santa’s progress with NORAD! The countdown is on for his big debut this year!
