Welcome to the Mistletoe Madness Blog Event!! I’ve teamed up with That’s What I’m Talking About and Blogging By Liza to bring you some fun holiday posts from a whole slew of awesome authors.
It’s is a two week event where authors with 2015 winter releases (November 2015 — January 2016) will take over our blogs with guest posts written from one of their character’s POV with a holiday theme (Christmas, Hanukkah, Festivus, New Years, etc.). There will be exclusive bonus scenes, recipes, top 10 lists… all manor of shenanigan is possible. Some authors are including giveaways, too, so be sure to check out each days’ posts! You can check out the full schedule on the Kickoff Post.
Today, Sara Humphreys, author of the upcoming THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE VAMPIRE, shares “The Good, The Bad, and The Fabulous” of the holiday season. (She also shares a contest at the end!!)
The Good, the Bad, and the Fabulous of the Holiday Season by Sara Humphreys
Like everyone else in the free world, I’m running around like a crazy person during this time of year but I didn’t want to miss out on the Mistletoe Madness! The fourth installment of my Dead in the City series will be released January 5th. In the spirit of THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE VAMPIRE…here’s my list of the The Good, the Bad, and the Fabulous for the holiday season.
Generosity of Spirit and Overall Kindness: We get our Christmas tree during Thanksgiving weekend and my four sons love to tease me about how early we put the decorations up. I love the overall feeling of the holiday season. Christmas day is lovely but it’s the whole season I really enjoy and I want to squeeze as much out of it as I can. People are generally kinder. There’s a spirit of goodwill in the air and who doesn’t want more of that?
Too much food and booze: I love food and wine and the holiday season brings a plethora of both. I simply can’t say no to a big glass of Malbec or some homemade cookies–or twelve. My goal this year is to enjoy the holidays without piling on any extra pounds. Put it this way, I don’t want to have to ask Santa for pants in a bigger size. We shall see.
Family time: There is nothing I enjoy more than spending time with my family and luckily the holidays create the perfect opportunity to do exactly that. When I’m with them, I laugh loudly and often. Love and laughter? Yeah, that’s about as fabulous as life gets.
How about you? What do you think is good, bad, and fabulous about the holiday season?
