A New Tradition?

A few weeks ago, I learned that there is a "Pippi Longstocking" book that I had never heard of before, a picture book called Pippi Longstocking's After-Christmas Party. It was published in Sweden in 1950, but didn't become available here until the 1990s.
As soon as I became aware of the book's existence, I just HAD to order a copy.
When the book arrived, I put it aside to read after Christmas. That seemed
appropriate!
As I said, the book is a picture book, just one short story. But it was, to me, as
enjoyable as the full-length Pippi books.
I think I will read this book every year, at the beginning of Ordinary Time.
