1. Who can ever pick?? I read so many good ones this year… I guess Ink, Blood, Sister, Scribe
2. Probably When I‘m Dead by Hannah Morrissey
3. Just hanging out with the (adult) kids, maybe we‘ll go to a bar and maybe we‘ll stay in
4. We do not! It‘s mostly a pajama day here
5. Green and brown, we have tons of lovely evergreens! And it doesn‘t snow here but it did get chilly.

I‘m kinda feeling meh about Christmas this year and it feels as though I am going through the motions at the moment.

thebacklistbook I don't know if this will help or not: I highly recommend watching Christmas on Cherry Lane, or Everything Christmas. Also it might really help to give yourself permission to just feel blah, and ignore the holiday altogether if possible. In which case I recommend a steady diet of your favorite movies and TV shows. 2mo
BethM I am totally in the same boat. 2mo
dabbe I know the feeling, too. I love the advice given by @thebacklistbook. Don't be hard on yourself. Do what does make you feel good--even if it has NOTHING to do with the holiday season. Hang in there. You, too @BethM. 💙💙💙 2mo

Thanks for the tag, @peanutnine !!

1. While it doesn‘t get very cold here in Florida, when it does my favorite wintery beverage is a hot chai latte

2. It changes but the most prevalent one is 🎶Rockin Around the Christmas Tree🎶 or whatever it‘s called 🤣

3. I love getting under double blankets, putting on some fireplace ASMR on YouTube, and reading before the (fake) fire

Hey #GhostsofXmas team! I‘ve been seeing you tagging me in posts for the last week and I‘ve wanted to participate but I was in Disney World last week - absolute blast (though the Christmas party could‘ve been warmer 😂)! Just didn‘t want anyone to think I was ignoring you!

But I‘m home now and getting back into reading. I‘m excited to start posting all the time and wrack up some points with games and of course reading!

@BookwormAHN #wintergames

1. Yes, just a tree (due to laziness - I'd love to have Grizwald level home decor).
2. The tree. I turn it on in the morning, and it sits by the fireplace. It makes me happy just being in the same room with it.
3. Do They Know It's Christmas - I had that one as one of those tiny record singles when I was a kid. Also, Christmas in Dixie is a sentimental favorite, and I love Pentatonix Christmas songs.

Traci1 @bthegood my husband and I got married just before Christmas, 27 years ago today actually. We spent part of our honeymoon in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and the only stations we could pick up on the radio were country stations. We heard that song over and over, and so now when I hear it, it always takes me back there. It's a sweet little song. 3mo

I need some recommendations! For my church book club, I want to use a Christmas-themed book next month. I need something light-hearted, maybe a cozy mystery (like 12 Slays of Christmas), not too long, and no spicy romance. Please help!

We are in it right now. Wes is still not sleeping in his bed and just endlessly screaming. We don‘t know what to do anymore.

We have one more Christmas to go, but here are my favorite bookish Christmas presents so far! I thought the bag would be bigger but it should still be ok for our library trips. The pouch is for my kindle to go in my purse bc I have a book cover on it and it gets a little banged up sometimes.

Hey everyone, I graduated from college! I got a BA in history and I‘m now applying to graduate school in political science. I also finished my senior thesis, which ended up being 78 pages long… It‘s titled, In the Shadows of Brotherhood: Analyzing Three Women‘s Gendered Political Roles, Contributions, and Alternative Discourses in the Club of Great Powers During the Late Bronze Age (1500-1200 BC). I start a new job at Barnes and Noble tomorrow!

FantasyChick @Leftcoastzen @TheKidUpstairs @TheSpineView @IndoorDame @Aims42 It was definitely a Christmas Eve for the books! We went about 20hrs. Which wasn't as bad as Fiona so it's all good. All the kids still came home and we had our traditions and games in the firelight. We won't forget this Christmas for a long time!! 1y
FantasyChick @TheLudicReader It definitely was a storm for the books! Today's snow was a bit of a surprise but at least we were restored before Santa came. It was nice to have a white Christmas but I could have dealt with less lol. Glad you and your daughter missed the most of it!! I hear the marsh between us and Sackville was awful at one point with the wind. And then brutal snow past that. Hope you guys had a cozy Christmas! 1y

I waited as long as I could but today's my last day before vacation so I can't wait anymore.

I know it's supposed to be secret but @DinoMom your #CreepyChristmas is on its way! It's more Christmas than creepy right now because the rest of the gift hasn't come in yet. I'll send it out whenever it makes it's appearance. I'm expecting it will be in the New Year. But something's better than nothing, right?

@teebe

DinoMom I am okay if you want to wait until it‘s all in so you are not shipping twice ❤️ 1y
FantasyChick @DinoMom No worries! I don't mind sending twice. Just remember when you see a little package that there's more to come! 🥰 1y
DinoMom It arrived today! @teebe @FantasyChick 1y

My grandparents made this Christmas Village in 1980. I ended up with it! It's my favorite Christmas Decoration.

Forgot to post in all the chaos of the weekend but my #Jolabokaflod packages are out and on their way! I did ship later than I should have but both show delivery on Wednesday so they should definitely make it to their homes in time for the holidays 🎄

My #JolabokaflodSwap box arrived yesterday (thanks, @Karisa !) but I had to pick my daughter up from the airport, and in the chaos of that (gridlocked traffic in the rain!), I forgot to post. So excited to open it! However, I will be good and await the appointed day. 😇🎄🎁

Karisa Glad it arrived safely. My daughter just came home (from college) Thursday night. Hurray for the holidays and family time! 😊💗 1y

Got my #jolabokaflodswap package today! I didn't see a handle on the outside (unless it's there and I can't find it!), so thank you to my match! @MaleficentBookDragon
