Grab the kids, a cozy blanket, some hot chocolate and get ready to be charmed by The Night the Lights Went Out on Christmas by award-winning singer-songwriter Ellis Paul. 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.

The Night the Lights Went Out on Christmas

About The Night The Lights Went Out On Christmas:

Paul’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.

    I remember a year when we kids were balancing on chairs and stools and books on top of other things in order to decorate the tippy top of the tree–and leaned over too far, toppling over the entire tree. We talk abut that event every year, when the decorations come out. It seemed like a disaster at the time, but now is a very funny memory. I wish we had taken pictures of it, but at the time the adults were pretty mad and the kids were very chastened. (Santa was watching, after all.)

    I remember the year when my mom was making seafoam candy, she happened to be on the phone at the time. She turned away & next thing you know it looked like a huge mushroom in the pan. LOL It’s been over 35 years, I was 7 or 8 at the time, and we still mention that.

    When I was a kid I remember my dad putting lights up outside.Then he plugged them in and the neighborhood went black.It was funny that the power went out just as he plugged the lights in. Makes me think of Lampoons Christmas Vacation.Lol! Thank you for the chance 🙂

    I remember Christmas one year when my brother woke up and opened everyone’s present. Imagine the disappointment watching all your toys already opened on the floor!

    We always do the 12 Days of Christmas. Of course, they are treats that we leave.

    I can’t think of any stories about holiday hijinks. Making all the Christmas lights go out would certainly qualify!
