Advent Stories Day 5: A Christmas Countdown

Welcome to the Advent Story event I am having here on Eastern Sunset Reads this Christmas season.
Every family has their own personal Holiday traditions, and many of them include those advent calendars that have the little chocolates or toys behind each door as you count to Christmas Day. Well in my family we had a Advent Candle instead. Each night we would light the candle and as it burned that day away we would read a special Christmas story or poem. So I decided to bring that tradition to all of you.
Most of the books will be Children's books as I share this tradition with Munchkin for the first time, but I will also have some After Dark specials and maybe a few fiction, romance and young adult books too as time allows. I will also feature a favorite Christmas song each day. So please join me and share some of your favorite traditions, songs and stories this holiday season!

Synopsis: Holly Babes take us on a Holiday countdown, filled with decorations and friends preparing to celebrate the season.

My Review: I admit I am totally obsessed with the Holly Babes, they are just too cute! The illustrations are absolutely adorable. The countdown items seem to be unique and different from other holiday countdown books I have read, ie. caroling birds or lambs on their way to bed. Possibly one of my favorite books I have read to Munchkin this Christmas season.
My Rating: I adore this book so I give it a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!


  1. I love that you have this tradition and that you get to share it with your little munchkin. How fun!

    1. It is one of my favorite traditions and I can't wait until Munchkin can really appreciate it!
