The Magic Christmas Ornament Collection

Invite the magic of Christmas into your home this winter with The Magic Christmas Ornament Collection. This spellbinding Christmas storybook and dazzling tree ornament set will inspire new traditions and pull readers, both young and old, into a world of holiday splendor. The Magic Christmas Ornament Collection includes an heirloom quality case bound hardback book, an ornament just like the one in the story, and a beautiful decorative package, perfect for making the gift of Christmas a lasting memory.

On Christmas Eve, Victoria’s father gathers her and her brothers, Joseph and John, around the fireplace to tell the story of a very special ornament that has hung on their tree for as long as they can remember. Their father found the ornament in a mysterious tree one snowy evening when he was seven years old, and brought it home. After hearing the story and going to bed, Victoria, Joseph, and John sneak back downstairs, and discover the ornament has magical powers! It whisks them away to the happiest place on Earth: Santa’s workshop! The children can’t believe their eyes as Santa himself appears before them. They also see mountains of toys, reindeer prepping for flight, the largest Christmas tree ever, and hundreds of elves – one of whom seems very familiar. This elf, named JJ, gives them a tour around the workshop, tosses Victoria one of Santa’s ornaments, and leads them outside, straight to a mysterious tree in the woods. Victoria somehow knows to place Santa’s ornament into the tree’s knothole, and the magic of the ornament whisks them right back home. When they return, the children know they’ll never forget the magic of Christmas that they witnessed that night.

  1. We have been making the rounds with the grandchildren to view the lights and decorations. Will attend mass as a family, have lots of food and fun as well as open gifts. So excited!

  2. One of the holiday traditions that my family do for the holidays is decorating the tree

  3. We go to Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve and come and have the most delicious hot chocolate and sugar cookies and open one gift.

  4. We give a new set of christmas pajamas and socks every year for each child to wear on Christmas eve.

  5. We go to my mother in laws house on Christmas Eve. When we come home we watch a family movie (even though the boys are now 17 and 19). Then we do stockings in the morning. We do not do much in presents because well they are older and they are boys. Actually they both bought each other such expensive gifts this year, that they do not need anything mom and dad could have bought them (a Switch and Beats wireless headphones)

  6. Growing up we would go to the late mass on Christmas Eve and then come home and make a fresh batch of cookies for Santa.
    Now that we are grown and have our own families we do the same.

  7. My favorite tradition is our Christmas morning treasure hunt.
    We started it with our boys when they were little and now we do
    for our grandchildren. It starts with a clue left under their pillows.
    They follow it to the next clue, and so on,
    until they find the special gift at the end of the treasure hunt.
    I think they look forward to it as much as seeing what Santa left
    and opening their gifts from under the tree.

  8. We always bake cookies together. We also go to the Christmas Tree farm and pick out our tree.

  9. Our favorite day is Christmas Eve. The whole family gets together for a big Lasagna dinner, then we all go to Midnight Mass. My sister-in-law is a cloistered Nun and the last few years, she has been allowed to come home for a couple of days and be with us.

  10. Our favorite traditions include decorating the tree & our home. I buy at least 3 new ornaments every year. Each one will have a special meaning or purpose, some are gifts.

  11. We put on our PJs on Christmas Eve and watch movies, drink hot chocolate and then open 1 gift before bed.

  12. we like to have a Christmas cookie bakeoff and competition on Christmas Eve. it’s a lot of fun.
