Hello my friends! Can you believe Christmas is one week away? Ahhh! Thankfully I'm pretty much ready, other than a ton of wrapping. This afternoon after school begins our family's favorite two weeks of the year. We sleep in as much as possible, make good food, go see a few movies and basically hibernate in the basement every evening. It's the best two week EVER. :)
Today I have a fun holiday-themed giveaway for you! This isn't just any book, it's my favorite book of the year. You may have seen my story about it a couple months ago:
Long story short, I walked into Hallmark one day, saw this pretty book on the counter and picked it up. I only looked at a few pages and the last one I came upon was a letter in my childhood handwriting:
Yes, my letter to Santa, 30+ years later. No, I had no idea it was going to be in the book. It was the find of a lifetime! I'm still in shock it happened and can't explain it. It's a testament to the magic of Christmas, that's for sure.
The book is a beautiful one with letters to Santa going back to the 40's:
I think those are my favorites. :)
The letters are sweet, sad and funny. These are from the 2010's and both made me laugh out loud (read to the end of the one on the right):
You can find the book online here as well.
Have a wonderful weekend! I'll be back next week with a tour of our Christmas home!
