The Christmas Pillow Book & Pillows
It's Christmas Eve and time for bed. CeCe and Letty are excited to put their Christmas pillows at the foot of their beds. But first, they ask their Nana to tell them the story again of how their family's Christmas pillow tradition began.
When Nana was a little girl, her family visited her cousins in England over Christmas one year. The Christmas traditions in England were different than the traditions in America. The first thing Nana noticed were there were no stockings hung by the fireplace. Did that mean that Santa didn't come to their home? Her cousin said they call Santa "Father Christmas" in England, and that he comes and puts treats and gifts into a pillowcase they leave on the foot of their bed while they're asleep.
On Christmas Eve, Nana put a plain white pillowcase at the foot of her bed. Would Santa find her? Would he leave treats and gifts in her pillowcase?
