Reads for a Holiday Merry and Bright

Christmas ornamentEvery year our library does a display of holiday books, and every year these books practically fly off the shelves.  Reading holiday titles help many people (including myself) get into the holiday spirit as we do the many things necessary to prepare for the season.   Holiday romances are always plentiful on the display and in the library, and there really is something for every romance reader, no matter the subgenre you prefer.  So if you are in the mood for novels full of merriment and families, both old and new, coming together, check out a title today.  Have a wonderful holiday season!

Spring will come early this year.

According to Punxsutawney Phil, America's most famous groundhog, spring will come early this year.   Since, most of America is covered with ice and snow, this is welcomed news that brings  a pinch of hope for warmer weather and sun filled skies.

Movies & Music: A Holiday Tradition

origami ornamentChristmas is my very favorite holiday. I love everything about it. I love that Christmas lasts all month and one radio station plays nothing but Christmas music. I love trimming the tree and hanging stockings, baking cookies and eating them, too! I love giving presents (and receiving presents), dreaming of a white Christmas, and spending time with family. Most of all, I adore singing all my favorite Christmas songs and curling up on the couch and watching all my favorite Christmas movies.

Family Traditions during the Holidays

Ristras

FAMILY STORYTIME CRAFT

Atascocita Branch Library MONDAY @ 7:00 PM

Ristras are an American Southwest tradition.  During the winter season, you can find ristras shaped wreaths.   Like the classic holly wreath, these are hung on your front door to welcome guest. I grew up in Colorado and have fond memories of these bright red wreaths.
