I thought that might get your attention! And no, I'm not going on strike for Christmas or Yule, or any other holiday, but wanted to share the title of a book I just read.
Normally, I don't make book recommendations unless I truly know what the person likes, or is seeking, but I just hopped over to Sarah's Cottage Garden Studio, as I do each Monday morning (a very nice tradition!) to join in her quilting bee, and nibble on some fantastic treats that she always has laid out for us.
This morning, she is talking about Holiday Traditions, something that has been on my own mind lately, and brought more into focus with a humorous book that I just finished.
On Strike For Christmas, by Sheila Roberts, is a lighthearted story of a group of women, each for their own reason, goes on strike, getting ready for the holidays, and their husbands are forced to take over. This isn't a torrid romance novel, but there is love in the air, with a warm hearted ending. Any woman, or man, for that matter, who has always done everything to get ready for the holidays, will get a few laughs, and will relate to the women in this book.
Sarah mentions that her hubby is going to bake this year, and she is going to go put her feet up and watch Harry Potter. Well, the movie may be different, but that is exactly what one of the women does! Sarah, did you read this book too? :-)
More on my own traditions later. Right now, I'm off to finish baking a new-to-me cookie recipe. Results to follow later!
Wishing everyone a very festive day!
