It's actually beginning to feel festive around my house these days. Last year, we visited family overseas so there was no decorating done at home. This year, we're here, so I put away the autumnal decorations and pulled out some of the ol' red-and-green. We even got a tree yesterday, which we haven't done in about four years. I LOVE IT! Pretty multi-coloured lights and a moose puppet as a topper. (Hey, you have your traditions, and I have mine.) I plan to get more accoutrements out later today to continue festive-ing up the place. :-D
since it is almost Solstice, I think you should go check out my old
holiday freebie short story with Jimothy and Ricky (stars of my first
novel The Ballad of Jimothy Redwing). It's called Wand'ring Home
and if you click that title, it'll take you straight to the pdf.
(Ignore the cover art. It's fine, but it's generic, and the only thing
it has to do with the story is that boys kiss each other. I've been so
busy I've not gotten around to updating it.)
