I’m very happy to announce that I have an essay in Chicken Soup for the Soul, Merry Christmas! which releases today. When I’m not writing about mother-daughter book clubs, reading, and books, I enjoy writing about family life. The essay in this edition of Chicken Soup is a story about a holiday tradition my husband and I started after we got married 25 years ago: We give each other a heart ornament to go on the Christmas tree. It’s hard to believe, but we’re now up to 49 ornaments, and I expect our collection to grow for many years to come.
There are 101 personal essays about the holidays in Merry Christmas! They fall into broad categories such as The Joy of Family, A Different Kind of Christmas, The Perfect Gift, Holiday Shenanigans, and more. If you’re looking for a holiday-themed book to read or give away, this one is sure to be appreciated.
