For this post, I want to share some of my holiday favorites:
My Favorite Holiday Read:
I love this read. The story of the Macy's elf made me laugh until I a cried. Recommended read if you read if you need some help getting through the holidays!
David Sedaris's beloved holiday collection is new again with six more pieces, including a never before published story. Along with such favorites as the diaries of a Macy's elf and the annals of two very competitive families, are Sedaris's tales of tardy trick-or-treaters ("Us and Them"); the difficulties of explaining the Easter Bunny to the French ("Jesus Shaves"); what to do when you've been locked out in a snowstorm ("Let It Snow"); the puzzling Christmas traditions of other nations ("Six to Eight Black Men"); what Halloween at the medical examiner's looks like ("The Monster Mash"); and a barnyard secret Santa scheme gone awry ("Cow and Turkey").
Holiday Reads for Kids:
My kids love this read. It's one of our favorites!
"The day before Christmas, snuggled on his floor, Bear sleeps soundly with a great big snore...."
Bear's friends are determined to keep Bear awake for Christmas! So they wake Bear up and have him help them find a Christmas tree, bake cakes, hang up stockings, and sing Christmas songs. Bear stays up -- by discovering that giving is one of the best Christmas presents!
I received this cookbook several years ago and was delighted to find you can get this book for just a penny on Amazon I was also given the second book in this series. They books are small, but they are filled with sweet, country crafts and recipes.
