WinterHaven Sleigh Tour: The Magic Of Christmas & Giveaway

Today Living Fictitiously is excited to join the WinterHaven Sleigh Tour hosted by WinterHaven Books. This week, we are posting our favorite Children's, Winter or Christmas story. To see who else is on the sleigh, go to WinterHaven Sleigh Tour for a list of participating blogs.
The Night Before Christmas: A Magical Cut-Paper EditionMy favorite Christmas story is The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore. I grew up with my dad reading this to my sisters and me every Christmas. We always had a big Christmas party, and he would gather up all the kids and read The Night Before ChristmasThe Magical Cut-Paper Edition, with illustrations by Niroot Puttapipat did not come out until much later, but I love it.

This book was first published in 1825 and was titled Account of a Visit from St. Nicholas. It's a classic, and I can't wait to be able to read it to my own kids one day. (I have to have some first!)

  1. My favorite Christmas story remains "A Christmas Carol", although, I do like "The Polar Express."
