Holiday Cheer! - Dara Girard

In my latest release PAGES OF PASSION, Noreen Webster is a bit of a Scrooge when it comes to the holidays. Bitter from a divorce and devastated by a betrayal and the loss of the man she loves, she can find no joy in the holiday cheer around her. It’s only because of her friends Suzanne and Claudia and her sister Arlene that she tries to get into the holiday spirit. Near the end of the book she ends up cooking a big meal and decorating the house—and reuniting with her true love.

Personally, I don’t need much to get into the holiday mood. I like the smell of fresh wreaths, the sound of holiday music, the sight of holiday movies and colorful candles. But what I like most about the holiday season is the food especially if it’s sweet—apple cinnamon pie with cream, dark or milk chocolate, red velvet cake and warm breads of all shapes.

Food makes me think about friends and family and how lucky I am.

So what do you like most about the holiday season?

The cool weather setting in. Once I start decorating for Autumn and Halloween and then Thanksgiving (outside), it starts. By the day after Halloween, I am out there putting up the lights (I have no desire to climb a tall ladder in the snow and ice) and planning on what I want to do and what I need to buy and I start buying lights and stuff as soon as I find them.

I enjoy watching the great grandkids next door ooh and ahh about my lights and blowup Santa and the seniors in the home across the street love them.

I love to shop and buy and give (and get), but the lights and decorations just bring me joy.
