The Night The Lights Went Out on Christmas Book ~~Giveaway~~





About The Night The Lights Went Out On Christmas:

Paul’s second children’s book tells the story of Christmas Block, a neighborhood renowned for its cacophony of decorations as families compete to have the biggest and brightest display each season. One year, however, they take it one Christmas light too far and blow out the power for the neighborhood, then the country, and then the entire world! What could be a disaster turns into a blessing in disguise as the neighbors realize the universe has been putting on a light show of its own, and are reminded that it’s the simple joys that truly make the holidays magical. Richly colored illustrations grow brighter and brighter as more lights join the fray with every turn of the page and young readers will delight in spotting new decorations in each vibrant image. Based upon Paul's song of the same name, this read aloud is a funny, sweet, modern fable about seeing beyond the sparkle and finding the true joy of the season.

We do enjoy putting up decorations! So fun to see all the houses with Christmas lights on them! We drive around about 4 nights a week and look at them. All so beautiful!

I don't go to crazy with decorations. I usually put up a couple of wreaths outside. However this year I bought one of those green and red star lights. It's really pretty and so easy. I put up 3 Christmas trees inside because I like to relax at night time while looking at the lights.
