2020 Advent Calendar Blog Hop

 Hi everyone, I apologize for the delay! I left this as draft instead of scheduling it. Have a great holiday!


Don't forget to join in the fun over at Jo's blog to see all the other days as well. 

This year Jo asked us for a favourite Christmas book. I think mine might be 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. My dad used to read it when we were little and I've enjoyed reading it to DD over the years as well. There's an updated 2020/COVID version floating around that's a little NSFW, but kind of funny if you come across it.  A Christmas Carol has a close second, especially the version read by Tim Curry. My best friend says she prefers Patrick Stewart's version, and it's certainly hard to argue against that one. :)

What are your favourite books around Christmas?

Also, I have an FFO to share!

I finished this Dimensions Joy Snowglobe last year, and finally fully finished it last week. I hope you all have a joyful holiday season however you celebrate and stay well!

Happy Stitching!

  2. I can only see the Advent door :-(

    Great book choice, a favourite of mine. The only Christmas Carol book I know is by Charles Dickins. Your ornament is cute, I bet that's what Santa does on Dec 26th!

  3. Thanks for taking part in the Advent Calendar Blog Hop this year. I love your Skating Santa!
    Twas the Night is a favourite of mine. We have a tradition of reading various different versions on Christmas Eve. Maybe I can try the NSFW version now my son is 18 LOL
    Also a big fan of Christmas Carol. I should get the audiobooks and see which I prefer!

  4. Your Santa globe is lovely. I haven't read 'Twas the night before Christmas' but I enjoy 'A Christmas Carol'. I haven't listened to any audio versions of it but have watched various TV/film versions. Last year the BBC showed a new version of the story and I think this is now my favourite version.

  5. What a fun Santa ornament, he looks very joyful!
    I think I'll skip the covid version and stick with the traditional Night before Christmas. Tim vs Patrick, tough choice.

  6. Your Santa Globe is very colorful and Christmas-y. I've always liked The Night Before Christmas, but didn't realize there were different versions.

    1. Thank you! And I think the different versions are somewhat tongue-in-cheek. :)

  13. Such a fun snow globe! And those books are still the best as far as I'm concerned. Altho' - I love one called 'The Best Christmas Pageant Ever' and used to read it to our kids every Christmas.

  14. A fun and festive ornament for your tree. I can see the time put into stitching all those shades of blue. Traditional Christmas stories are all intertwined in our memories. Merry Christmas
