Made a holiday wreath at a local shop last night. I‘m trying to get ahead of the heaviness of the dark winter months by feeling as much holiday vibe as possible! ❄️ I‘m really sinking into crafts, holiday books, and soon all the holiday music. I can‘t do the music before Thanksgiving, I have to have some boundaries lol!

Bookzombie That‘s a lovely wreath. I have been decorating already but I get you on the music. We have a local station that switches to 24 hour Christmas music and think they started on Nov 1. Too soon for me. Lol. 5d
JenReadsAlot Fun! 5d
peaknit @Bookzombie Yes! Us too, I feel like at least three of my preprogrammed stations are Xmas music 24-7. Too soon for sure. 5d

Clwojick Your wreath looks great! 🤩 If you haven‘t signed up for the WinterGames yet, you totally should! Sounds like it would be right up your alley! Holiday crafts are one my favourite parts of the Christmas season. 5d

1. Hmmm, I think it depends, I like them both but sometimes can‘t take any more crime stuff due to the day job.
2. I think cozy mysteries can be a misunderstanding or friends solving crime, like Scooby do and the gang, lol, crime novels feel more true crime and grisly. Some descriptions overwhelm the empath in me.
