Rudolph Day, November 2009

The purpose of Rudolph Day is to keep the Christmas spirit all year long. One can prepare Christmas gifts or crafts, watch a Christmas movie, play Christmas music, or read a Christmas book.

If you're in the United States, you've probably had a busy day, since Thanksgiving is tomorrow. But Christmas is just in hugging range...Advent begins on Sunday. Now's the time to watch some Christmas cartoons. Try

Donald Duck and Chip'n'Dale in "Toy Tinkers"

Mickey Mouse, Pluto and Chip'n'Dale in "Pluto's Christmas Tree"

Here are some of the new Christmas books I have on line to read this year:

♥ The True Gift by Patricia MacLachlan, author of Sarah, Plain and Tall

♥ 25 Days, 26 Ways to Make This Your Best Christmas Ever by Ace Collins

♥ A Christmas Promise by Anne Perry (I usually don't buy Perry's Christmas novelettes, but get them at the library, but since this one is about Gracie Phipps I made an exception.)

♥ Wishin' and Hopin' by Wally Lamb, a 1960s story that takes place in a parochial school

♥ Christmas Traditions, inspirational stories edited by Helen Szymanski

♥ Christmas Memories by Susan Waggoner, illustrated nostalgia book

♥ Christmas on the Home Front by Mike Brown (British home front during World War II!)

What's on your Christmas reading list this year?

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
