Each year about this time, I find my Christmas spirit, cheer, and inspiration need a boost. There never seems to be enough time for the shopping, gift wrapping, baking, decorating, cards, visiting, parties and festivities. To rekindle my Christmas spirit, I turn to some of my favorite Christmas books. American Country Christmas was written by Mary Emmerling and is filled with dozens of photos.
Colonial Williamsburg is surely one of the most beautifully decorated places for Christmas. All the decorations are made from natural materials. Oh the sights and smells of Williamsburg at Christmas is a wonderful experience and drives away any bah hum bugs.
I have many other Christmas books and magazines which give me inspiration and ideas. Sometimes, I just need a time out to recharge my holiday spirit.
