One of my all-time favorite Christmas memories is my father reading "Twas the Night Before Christmas" to my brother and me.
My mother would dress us in matching candy cane-striped pajamas, complete with pointy caps with a bell on the end, and we would crawl into my father's lap. He held the book in his great paws and melodically told us Clement Clarke Moore's traditional poem.
It was the sweetest bribery to get us to go to bed ever.
What are some of your childhood holiday traditions?
