What to Read Wednesday: Yuletide Edition

This week’s official WTRW theme is all about owls, but seeing as how Christmas is right around the corner I decided to be a maverick and go rouge on that topic, instead…

… ’cause I just can’t contain the merriment, y’all!

Putting a scholastic spin on our festivities, we followed the Swedish custom of honoring Saint Lucia with wreath & candle crowns plus hot buns the morning of December 13th.

And Little Man shared about Christmas (or the lack thereof) in China for his kindergarten’s Holidays Around the World geography unit.

With the aim of being neighborly, the kids baked & delivered gluten-free treats round the ‘hood…

… though we store-bought for Little Man’s teachers.

apples for teachers <3

The girls had a carol-filled, Christmassy piano recital at their teacher’s house.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmasssss…
