Day 2:
The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg

Not unlike many families, we first discovered this wonderful Christmas story through the movie starring Tom Hanks several years back.

The final passage of the book is still my favorite:
"At one time most of my friends could hear the bell, but as the years passed, it fell silent for all of them. Even Sarah found one Christmas that she could no longer hear its sweet sound. Though I've grown old, the bell still rings for me as it does for all who truly believe."
The book and the DVD are now a must in our holiday household!
