25 Days of Christmas Reading Challenge 

This time of year brings many families together as they celebrate the holidays and share gifts with another. It’s a wonderful opportunity to engage in quality family time with those you may not see often or even those you see everyday but may not spend much quality time with. Throughout this season, I like to try new and fun holiday-themed ways to spend quality time with my family and I came up with something new for the little ones this year!

We will be trying a 25 Days of Christmas Reading Challenge. Yes, this is an idea that just randomly popped into my head but it’s kind of a cool concept. Basically, we will be reading a different Christmas story every single night for 25 Days straight leading up to Christmas. It gives the girls something new to look forward to each night. ‘Ailani is ALREADY excited about it and we haven’t even started yet!

At first, I was trying to figure out how I was gonna pull this off. Like, do I checkout 25 Christmas books from the library over the next few weeks? Do I purchase a collection of Christmas books from Amazon? Or what?? Then I remembered my Epic! reading app subscription! I could download all of the books to my phone and tablet and just read from there! Duhhh!  I downloaded 25 Christmas books on Epic! this past weekend so I’m all ready to go and I am super excited!

If you love this idea and want to join us, you can sign up for a 30 day Free-Trial of Epic! right here and get in on the fun for FREE. You’ll have a pretty good collection of Christmas books to choose from and you can start right along with us on November 30!

Do you have a favorite story you like to read around the Holidays this time of year? Share in the comments below.

I’d also love to hear if you’ve decided to join us in our Reading Challenge. 🙂

Happy Holidays!

  2. I think this is such a great idea. It will help you all get in the mood for Christmas and develop your children’s love of reading too. Personally, I like to read one of Anne Perry’s Christmas books in the run up to Christmas each year.

    This is a great idea! I might have to check Epic out I haven’t heard of it before.

      Is awesome so that you can give it a test drive. 😉

  15. This is a great challenge, I honestly wish I had more time to sit down and read.

    1. I squeeze in some reading time with the girls just before bed time and if I’m lucky, I can read one of my own books after they’re asleep. Lol.

  16. My Daily She

    Oh! We do this too! My friend’s family wraps up 25 books, and they unwrap one each night to read. So cute!

  20. I love the magic of the holiday stories! This is a fabulous idea.

  21. This is a good challenge. Everyday, I’m reminded how important literacy is for children. I personally like to read in my down time, too.

  22. This is a BEYOND great idea. I am thinking about doing this with my little guy. That would make a great tradition! You will have to let me know if you come across any good Christmas stories! 🙂
