Holidailies Dec. 13: Holiday pet peeves. Everyone's got at least one. What's yours?
I hate cloying, manipulative, whiny appeals to my generosity. The Christmas Shoes comes to mind. I love being generous. I do not love "I'm spending my food money to buy my dying mother new shoes, because Jesus might judge her on her appearance, and her illness has made only her feet unattractive." Yes, I know I'm twisting and manipulating the meaning of the song. See how it feels?
25 Days of Christmas blogging asks my favorite Christmas book. Could it be anything other than A Christmas Carol?
