Christmas Giveaway at The Christmas Spirit

I don't usually post about giveaways on other blogs but Michelle, from The True Book Addict, has started a Christmas blog which is just lovely and which I wanted you all to know about. She's got all kinds of great information about the origins of Christmas, beautiful pictures, and this terrific giveaway. Michelle is giving away Richard Paul Evans' "The Christmas Box Collection," which is a collection of three holiday stories.

You know the beautiful song "Silver Bells?" Turns out bells were rung to ward off evil spirits as part of the pagan winter solstice festivities.


  1. Oh my goodness....I just love a good Christmas story so I am off to check this out.

  2. I know what you mean... But Mr Rochester is just so mysterious and I always feel bad for him in the end. His wife has freaked out but and he falls in love with Jane.

    Haha, my mother cannot count my fictional crushes anymore, there are so many of them.

  3. Oh yeah, I do the You've Got Mail challenge because it is a great excuse for me to read some Austen. And I can count Austen to the Gilmore Girls challenge too. :)

  4. Hmm, fun little tidbit about SIlver Bells.

    I love Michelle's Christmas blog. I go there to listen to the cool music and look at her pretty pictures!
    Gets me in the holiday mood!

  5. I love learning little tidbits like that about various traditions--about their origins and history. Thanks for sharing the one about Silver Bells!
