Christmas Reading

It's that time of year again. I've pulled out my ever growing collection of Christmas stories, books and magazines. It's like meeting old friends and, just like special friends, they add so much pleasure to my life during this Christmas season.


My seasonal reading also includes leisurely browses through all my December issues of Victoria magazine. Each magazine is laden like a banquet table with beautiful photography, inspiring stories, and so many wonderful ideas -- I always come away filled with inspiration and a gladness of heart.

Do you like pulling out special books and magazines for this time of year? What are you reading right now?

As I write, I hear the wind howling around the corners of the house. Makes me grateful and happy to be inside this evening where it's cozy and warm with my pile of books.

I pray your evening is also filled with 'cozy and warm'!

  1. Brenda, I do the same thing as you! I love Victoria magazine. I was so disappointed when they had stopped selling it and then was elated when they started republishing it! Have a wonderful holiday, enjoy your friends and your Christmas books! I love those traditions!

  3. Sherri, When I heard Victoria was stopping a few years ago, I felt like I was losing my best friend. Like you, I was pleased to hear it was back in circulation. (Have to admit, as lovely as the new edition is under Ms. Hoffman, I miss Nancy Lindemeyer).

    Lin, I wish you a safe and happy trip to see those wonderful grandbabies. I agree, it's not great traveling when it's snowing. Here, we are heading into a polar bear deep freeze this weekend (down to -30C or -20F)....yikes! Not used to that yet. If we ever get used to it!
