Hoping your Holidays Hold Good Health, Happiness, and Heartwarming Moments.
Our diversity shines during the holiday season.
Do you say “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays” to others this time of year? Does your “Happy Holidays” mean only Christmas and New Year’s?
I challenge you to learn at least one new item about a holiday not your own.
- Saint Nicholas Day (Christian)
- Fiesta of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Mexican)
- St. Lucia Day (Swedish)
- Hanukkah (Jewish)
- Christmas Day (Christian)
- Three Kings Day/Epiphany (Christian)
- Boxing Day (Australian, Canadian, English, Irish)
- Kwanzaa (African American)
- Omisoka (Japanese)
- Yule (Pagan)
- Saturnalia (Pagan)
As you seek the perfect presents for everyone on your list, remember books make a great gift. Let’s consider adopting the Icelandic tradition of Jólabókaflóð, or “Yule Book Flood”.
Great gifts at great prices. Five books are on sale for 99¢ for the holidays. At this awesome price, you need more than one.
Did you know you may purchase eBooks as gifts on Amazon? It’s easy to share your favorite books with everyone on your list. No need to wrap–Amazon will do all of the work. For last minute shoppers, this is a terrific way to ensure gifts arrive in time.
You deserve to enjoy the holiday season.
Remember to take some time for yourself during this busy season. Treat yourself to a massage or mani/pedi, find a cozy chair to read a great book, or buy yourself a gift.
