    It’s more of a funny story than one I love. It was Christmas Eve and my middle child (our girl) was feeling sick. I was up wrapping presents (I procrastinated) and heard her in the back bedroom. I went back there and she stumbled out of the door and into the laundry room where she proceeded to vomit into my cupped hands. *chuckles* I’ll never forget that.

  38. Jessica Whitehouse says:

    I’m notorious on Facebook for changing my profile to feature the Grinch. I’m not against Christmas, just the commercialization. My kids don’t need the biggest, newest, or best toys to prove that I love them. Christmas should be about spending time with your family and for celebrating kindness and generosity, not shopping and going into debt to buy presents.

  39. BookLady says:

    For historical romance lovers I would recommend A Christmas Bride / Christmas Beau by Mary Balogh. Happy Holidays! bhometchko(at)hotmail(dot)com

  41. grgenius says:

    There are so many amazing holiday stories out there, but one I’m partial to is A CHRISTMAS CAROL. This year there was a new release entitled MR DICKENS AND HIS CAROL that I was quite enraptured with. It tells the story of how the classic came to be but with a fictitious twist and a spirit all its own. 🙂

  42. Kim says:

    I love Ginny Baird’s Christmas Town series. But you have to make sure you have cookies around, because she talks about cookies a lot in the books.
