  1. Wow.

    That is heady stuff for a Saturday morning, but I really enjoyed the challenge you posed to how people think about Christmas. For years now, I've looked at Christmas different ways, from looking at the music to wondering about the meaning of it both religiously and non-, and I'm glad to see other people doing that, too.

    I said the other day that having a holiday which can mean many things, but which all seem to boil down, in general, to "Be nice to each other," seems like a great thing to me. I plan on checking out your book and probably giving it to a few people.

    Would you like it featured in the Indie Gift Guide? Look at and let me know!

    1. Thank you Briane! For me, taking the creative way is all about that challenge of looking -- really looking -- at everything through our own eyes. Would love my little book to be featured in your Indie Gift Guide -- thank you for the kind invitation. And for reading!

  2. Thank you Nicole, I'm glad you found the post interesting. Great series Jess has going here!
