Children re-tell the mystery

Happy Holidays! One of the things I love about this season is how children absorb the magic of their family’s holiday tradition by hearing and telling its stories.

As we course through Hanukkah, Al Hijra, Ashura, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Year’s, and Epiphany, a lot of wonderful stories are being re-lived.

Please share with us by sending links to your tradition’s favorites in the "Add New Comment" area below. My contribution is this delightful 21st century rendition of the Christmas story from children in Auckland, New Zealand.

Host of the Year: You

Are you wondering how to keep your houseguests entertained this holiday season? May we offer our large selection of coffee table books on just about every topic you can imagine. We've placed a sampling on our round wall by the front door and there are many more upstairs.

While you're looking at our books, you might also enjoy our display of holiday cookbooks and crafts, and beyond, our offerings of DVD's. Let us help you be the host with the most.
