I have always been a big fan of ALL holidays, including the hallmark kind. Having Ems to share in the excitement of the holidays has allowed me to take it to a whole new level. Since she is almost a year and a half she’s at the age where she is really starting to learn what everything is. I find that books are the best way to teach her about the holidays, as they provide her with the opportunity to learn the various words of items that are associated with the season. It also gives me the chance to ask her to point out the new items she’s learning on the pages while we read, which brings her (and mommy) so much joy!
