The sun should be shining, the birds singing and we should be sunbathing.. but nopes sorry I've been planning A Bookish Christmas, celebrating Christmas in July all this week with Author/Blogger Interviews, Giveaways AND best of all a few surprises here or there! So keep your eyes peeled and ears to the ground as it's sure to get chilly or even heat up a few notches! Christmas! The hustle and bustle in the shops or on the streets, the Christmas market and buying chocolate waffles OR the cinnamon Yankee candles that you sniff in the store.. What? Just Me Really? #Awkward
Christmas is my favourite time of year especially the anticipation building up to the months surrounding it and even crafting cards in July, it never ceases to amaze me how much I love buying, gifting, wrapping up gifts, the tying of the ribbons and bows for friends and family especially adding the wee bits and bobs with their pressies that I know they'll love.
It's a time for friends, family and happiness! Bringing a smile to a loved ones face or seeing the excitement in a child's eyes light up when they believe Santa is on his way and they must race of to bed and get tucked in for the night ahead of staying awake then sneaking a peek out their window and hoping for a glance at a reindeer. Christmas to me is about love, joy, happiness and especially family.
Below a giveaway at the bottom! Did I mention that ALL the giveaways will be wrapped? so no one knows what they'll be winning? ;) Sure I'll let you know if it's a giftcard, signed book or swag but you won't know the amount, the title or what the book is about.. (I will be kind and disclose the author though) plus I have a naughty or nice giveaway coming up as well! (As if you need to worry about raising your body temperature in these next couple months!)
