Louise | 279 comments Hello :-)

In Denmark we have a tradition for christmas chapter books, for kids and for adults. Books with 24 chapters, and the idea is, that you read 1 chapter a day from Dec. 1st to Dec. 24th.

Do you have the same concept and if so, any recommendations? I'm looking for new books to read, as I've read most of the available ones in Danish :-)

What a lovely idea, but new to me, too, Louise. I wonder about The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. It's only 96 pages, but I don't remember how many chapters it has.

Deborah | 124 comments It is new to me as well. We always read a Christmas story aloud every day in December, and now that my children are grown they have continued the tradition with their families. I continue to read, and re-read something from my Christmas shelf of books during the holiday season, and sometimes throughout the year when I need a "lift".

Louise | 279 comments It's huge in Denmark, we have them on tv as well, and it's one of the best christmas traditions, watching the "julekalender" every day for 24 days with your family :-)

I did not want to overwhelm you - hopefully something here will appeal to you.
