H.U.G.G. Review: My Family Christmas Book and Memories

Now that I have my own family I am all about traditions, however it's a little hard when you are a military family and constantly on the move or never knowing when your husband will be deployed. Well, this year my husband isn't going to be here but thanks to the Family Review Network and My Family Christmas Book and Memories, I was able to review a book that gives you guidance on how to start your own Christian Christmas traditions!

"My Family Christmas Book and Memories" is a book on Advent and Christmas readings, family prayers and activities to have a Christ-centered Christmas.
In it you will find:
  • Inspirational and practical  ideas to have a Christ centered Christmas
  • Family readings and prayers for Advent, Christmas and the New Year
  • Beautiful Christmas carols and songs
  • Favorite Christmas recipes (and space to include your own!)
  • Christmas craft ideas for children
  • A Christmas Planner
  • A section to record the most memorable moments of your Christmas celebrations.  
My Take: Although it says that the book is geared towards Christian families it is not overly religious and I love that. I am Christian and a lot of the Christmas Carols, mediations, and prayers are in this book. It's great for a family (like mine) that is religious but doesn't necessarily attend church regularly. Then for those who want a more generalized Christmas there's sections for Christmas planning and memories, even recipes! I think my favorite section is the Christmas Crafts Ideas for Children. They even have directions on how to make those pinecone Christmas trees that we used to make growing up! Boy that brought back the memories. The book is also very interactive with places to personalize. You can add in your own recipes, write down your family traditions, even make a Christmas card list and presents to buy for upcoming years. You just fill in the date! I love it! I'm absolutely using it! It's also a sturdy hardcover book/binder with removable pages. Perfect for storing away with the Christmas decorations and bringing out again the following year.

Buy it: You can purchase the book using paypal on the site for the price of $23.90 and get free shipping for the month of November. It is also available for purchase on Amazon at the same price.
