Night Before Christmas
Yesterday I was going on and on about Thanksgiving and a book by the same name. Today, another book. Each year I purchase one Christmas book that really speaks to me. It's our "family" book for the year. And yes, there have been times I bought more than one, but that's because it was something irresistible.
I'll probably get in big trouble showing you these pages but you just have to be sold on this. I gasped and stroked this page, this gray, cold, nighttime expectant page. How many times have you seen this? A house in the dark, a snowman greeting the person coming into the driveway. Your eye goes immediately to that lit tree by the door. On the page it sparkles. Here not so much. You just have to trust me.
