I've seen a few things pop up this past week about Christmas in July, and while I haven't given it a ton of thought, today I actually find myself listening to Christmas music. I accidentally ran across a song in my iTunes library (I think it was on shuffle) and now I can't stop.
Maybe it's because it's so blasted hot out and my area is in the middle of a record-breaking drought, I'm especially yearning for the coolness of December. The holiday music is doing a nice job of tricking my brain, however temporary. :)
I saw a giveaway for novels with a Christmas theme, and it got me wondering if I've read any "Christmas" books. Some books touch on it... some of the Harry Potters, A Walk to Remember... maybe one or two others that I can't remember.
Have you read any that don't feel like the screenplay to a Hallmark movie? (NOT THAT I DON'T WATCH THOSE!! I'm a fan of the fake snow and cheese as much as the next person.) Any recommendations for me? I must quench this Christmas yearning!
