Countdown to Christmas: Christmas Book Countdown


One of our favorite family traditions when my kids were little was our Christmas Countdown Books. Over the years we have accumulated a lot of Christmas books in our home library. Every Christmas we would add to our collection so there were new books every holiday season to read.

We have included some free number printables for you and the instructions, if you would like to add this tradition to your family.

Gather all of your holiday and Christmas picture books.


They don't all have to be Christmas, they can be about snowmen or winter. Grab wrapping paper, tape, scissors, your books and print off the numbers.


Wrap each of the books up separately and attach the numbers to each book. If you do not have a lot of books to choose from this year, you can always do this for the last 12 days or however many you have books for. 

We have some great options at Whimsy on Main to help you add to your Christmas book collection. You can find them in our store or you can browse through our books in our online store (Free Shipping or store pickup is available).


We hope you love this holiday tradition and we are excited to share more ideas, traditions and recipes without as we Countdown to Christmas at Whimsy on Main!
