25 Days of Christmas @ 6 November 2009 03:54 AM

My wife and I came up with a great idea for the evenings leading up to Christmas. Our idea was to do something special (movies, popcorn and more) with the kids every night starting on December 1st and ending on Christmas Night. Our kids love movies and every Friday we have movie night in our house. We thought since the kids look forward to movie night every Friday, they may love this idea. And they did! The idea got a thumbs-up from our three kids. We chose 22 movies from 1935 to 2007. That leaves three more evenings. We plan on going to see a musical/play, we're thinking "A Musical Christmas Carol". We also will be reading the book, "Twas the night before Christmas". And on Christmas Night we will be watching our video from Christmas morning. This has been our tradition for years.
