Ya this might sound weird, but when I was growing up my family had a tradition. Every Winter we would all sit around the tree and my dad would read us stories. This was a tradition that carried on until we were way way too old for it to be actually ok.
We always read the same stories and naturally he started with the most classic of all Xmas stories – The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. I’m sure most of you have read this great book.
The Secret Xmas Recipe
In retrospect it wasn’t so much the books he read, rather the incredibly cozy and awesome environment he would create for us every Christmas. There were a couple of simple steps to making an awesome little Xmas.
- Hot Chocolate
- Our incredibly cute Husky – Brian
- Lots of presents nearby
- Christmas Lights
Laser Xmas Lights and Laser Projectors – The Best Part of Xmas Reading
Actually speaking of the last one we didn’t have any normal Xmas lights. It was a weird projector light that my father actually invented himself, but what it created was pretty cool. Basically our living room looked like there were dancing fireflies all around it.
It’s a little hard to explain but it really added to the flavor and emotion of family reading time. If you want to see the basic kind of setup you can check out Laser Christmas Light HQ’s Website and Guides.
Well that is the end of my random ramblings and useless nonsense. If you guys have anything you’d like to add hit me up with an email.
