Less than a week until Christmas and I don’t know about you, but I’m giddy with holiday spirit! Between classic Christmas songs (anything by ‘Ol Blue Eyes Sinatra) and movies (“Love Actually” is my personal favorite), and a sense of overall public merriment, I’m wrapped up tight in a blanket of holiday warm ‘n fuzzies. This feeling only comes once a year so may as well soak it up like an apple cider-loving sponge is what I say.
It’s easy to get into the Christmas spirit, what with reindeer figurines sprinkled on lawns and colorful, blinking lights strung up everywhere. However, my favorite way to get excited about the holidays is curling up with a holiday-themed book and a big mug of hot chocolate topped with extra whipped cream. It’s a bit on the nose, I admit, but what can I say — I’m easy to please. Between the guaranteed happily-ever-afters and slightly fantastic miracles that tug on your heartstrings, it’s easy to get swept up in holiday cheer after reading a good Christmas story.
Luckily, there’s no shortage of holiday reads out there to get your fix. In fact, I went on a downloading
binge spree a couple of weeks ago and ended up with over a dozen Christmas stories to help get me in the mood for Santa’s arrival. And, since it is the season for giving, it would only make sense that I share the wealth with you, dear readers, in case you were on the hunt for some Christmasy short stories for yourself. Go forth and download and enjoy this mini reads. I guarantee you’ll come up feeling just a bit more jolly and a lot less Scrooge afterward!
