The Holiday season is upon us, and I’d like to take this time to wish everyone Happy Holidays! No matter what you celebrate, this is a wonderful time of the year. You know what goes perfectly with the Holiday season? That’s right, it’s books.
Snuggling up in a warm blanket, with a warm drink, a good book, the fireplace burning, and with a fresh layer of snow on the ground. Sounds like a Christmas miracle, doesn’t it? By human nature, we’re always busy. Running from place to place, constantly thinking about what you have to do next, and when you have to do it.
The last few weeks of the year seem to be the time when the entire world slows down. Maybe it’s the cold weather (or hot weather for all my southern hemisphere friends), but this is the time of the year when people take a break, and do something that often doesn’t fit in our busy schedules, like reading!
Obviously for book aficionados like us, reading is a part of our day to day lives, but for many people it isn’t. Even I’ve been trying to read more this break because I haven’t had a lot of time to read recently. However, once that Holiday break arrives, I swear that everyone eventually cracks open the spine of that book they’ve been meaning to read forever.
To me, books and the Holiday season go together like bread and butter. I’ve never known a Christmas break where I don’t spend half of it locked up in my room, reading a good book. Plus, how often do you hear someone say that one of their New Years Resolutions is to read more?
So, tonight it’s Christmas Eve (although perhaps it’s already Christmas when you’re reading this), and I just wanted to write this simple little post to wish everyone Happy Holidays, and to reminisce on the beauty of this time of year and the love of reading.
