The 12 Joys of Christmas Brings a Whole New Meaning to What is Important during the Holidays!

For so many families, Christmas can feel like a whirlwind of shopping and spending. But long after the last perfectly wrapped holiday present has been opened, it’s the memories of time spent with family and friends in this special season that remain as our real “gifts.”


In the new holiday book The 12 Joys of Christmas (available in hardcover, paperback, and as a mini gift book) by Thomas Seibold, illustrated by Sheri McCulley Seibold, readers from ages one to ninety-two will enjoy thoughtful words and classic imagery of the very best the season has to offer. From holiday cookie baking to outdoor fun to hanging favorite ornaments on a freshly cut tree, hearts are warmed and memories evoked as readers ponder the time-honored traditions, experiences, and simple pleasures that families have enjoyed for generations.

Our Thoughts

I simply love this story. I love the meaning behind it and celebrating the memories of Christmas. This will be a very difficult holiday for us this year. I lost both of my grandmother’s this year and the memories are all we have left. The book is written in the style of the 12 days of Christmas song and very well done. It is the prefect gift this holiday season to remind everyone of all of the important non material aspects of this holiday.
