Dreaming of a White Christmas

Growing up in the South where it rarely snowed, it was hard to imagine a white Christmas. More often than not, we would have our windows open and the fan blowing while sweating over a hot stove preparing the turkey and dressing and all those yummy trimmings that filled the house with such delicious smells. The radio would be playing I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas while outside the sun shone on the pine trees without a hint of a snowflake anywhere in sight. We would decorate our Christmas tree with fake icicles while dreaming of snow banked up to the window sills and the sounds of sleigh bells drifting faintly through the air. By the time we gathered around the table, joining hands and bowing our heads in prayer, thoughts of a white Christmas had drifted away once again. The sun shone outside while inside the house was filled with love and joy and thankfulness at being together once again on this glorious Christmas Day!

Wishing you a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Don't forget that books make excellent gifts. You can purchase mine online at without leaving your home.
