Create a fun Christmas Book Countdown using all your favorite Christmas books! Here’s how to put it all together and make it easy year after year. Plus see a list of our all-time favorite Christmas stories!
CREATE A SIMPLE CHRISTMAS ADVENT WITH ALL YOUR FAVORITE BOOKS!
Chances are you have a pile of your favorite Christmas books in your collection and because December can be so busy, you might not find much time to sit down and actually read them.
So…do a Christmas Book Countdown!
This fun Christmas advent calendar is so simple because you can use the books you already have! Even if you have other Christmas Advent Calendars, you can still do this one, too!
Tip: start a new tradition and purchase one new Christmas book each year!
HOW TO PREPARE YOUR CHRISTMAS BOOK ADVENT
Step 1) Gather all of your Christmas books. You’ll need 24 to read one each night of December or do a shorter 12 Days of Christmas with just 12. I have a full list of our favorite Christmas books below!
Tip: If you don’t have 24 Christmas books in your collection yet, borrow some from your local library!
Step 2) Wrap each book. Attach one of these cute advent calendar numbers to each book so you’ll know which book to open each day.
Step 3) Each day, gather around the tree. Take turns opening a book and read it all together.
TIP TO MAKE IT EASY NEXT YEAR
When Christmas is over, use all of your leftover wrapping paper to wrap your Christmas books. Wrapping them before you store them away will make your Christmas book advent countdown all ready to go for next year!
BEST BOOKS FOR YOUR CHRISTMAS BOOK COUNTDOWN
These are some of our all-time favorite Christmas books! I’ve also included a link to purchase them on Amazon so you can add it to your collection!

WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE 25 CHRISTMAS BOOKS?
If you haven’t built up your Christmas book collection yet, you can still do this tradition! Either do the 12 days of Christmas books or check out a few from your local library. Just be sure to not damage the cover when you wrap them!
