I’m hip deep in Christmas cheer over here. The cookies are baked, I’m waiting on one more present to arrive, the dead bulb on the strand of lights has been replaced. I need to find the baby Jesus for the nativity scene (it’s got to be around here somewhere) and family are gathering from near and far.

We’ve gone through Hanukkah, Solstice, Kwanzaa, and today is Festivus – hint, if you ever need to wrestle Kat to the floor, just knock her TBR pile over on her. It makes the job much easier – and Christmas is just around the corner.

Whatever celebrations you have this year, I hope they have been and will continue to be full of love, cheer, and good books.

Happy Holidays from the FanLit family.
