December Is My Favorite Holiday

December Is My Favorite Holiday is a story of family traditions that children look forward to in preparation for Christmas. So even though all the rituals lead up to one big day, Christmas, the real fun is in the family time we celebrate throughout the month of December: tree lightings, family and friend gatherings, gift giving, as well as some ethnic traditions (Latin and European) and the author’s local Chicago traditions such as the Walnut room, snack with Santa, and Christkindlemart. These traditions will ring true for most families and hope you will add your own family’s traditions to the story with a special page included for you to list them.
