The Holidays are Upon Us.

Halloween is over, the stores have Fall/Thanksgiving items on sale, and Christmas decorations are showing up on the shelves. Yes, it's that time of year again. The craziness that is the holidays.

I love decorating for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I don't over do, but I enjoy the festiveness of a house that is decorated.

Then there's the deep thinking of what presents to get family members and close friends. That's my favorite part. Finding gifts that fit the person. And making personal gifts. My mom did that for her grandkids and I like to do it for mine.

In the midst of all this decorating, cooking, and finding the right present, there needs to be some calm. The best was I find to relax at this time of year is to read holiday stories. Whether they are about Thanksgiving or Christmas or even the New Year they are all filled with hope and bring in the warmth of the holiday.

I'm in a historical western romance Christmas anthology, Silver Belles and Stetsons. It releases today and is an excellent collection of novellas set at Christmas time. The ten authors in the anthology have each written heart-warming stories.

Your description of the holidays matches my memories of my own family both as a child and then when I first set up my own house. Silver Bells and Stetsons looks like a fantastic bargain!!!
