You won’t be disappointed, we can promise you that.
And now off to our lovely guest, Nicky Wells.
As the song goes, “I don’t want a lot for Christmas…” Really, all I want for Christmas is to see the big beaming smiles of my children and husband, and for all my family to be there, and be well. If we’re talking perfect Christmas, throw in some candles, some nice food (it doesn’t have to be turkey; in fact, anything but turkey, LOL), music, and snow. Snow would be good!! We don’t get enough snow at Christmas in the UK. I would love a few inches, please, and more of the heavenly stuff falling all through Christmas day. I wouldn’t object to a howling gale, either. That would be very Christmassy indeed.
As for actual presents… well. I struggle with the whole present thing. I love giving presents, but I’m not very good at receiving them. I get all emotional and embarrassed and uncomfortable. I don’t know why, really. I didn’t used to be like that as a kid! Maybe it’s because my perspective has changed with time, and now the absolutely best thing — and the thing I want most — is for people around me to be happy and have a good time. (And snow. Did I mention snow?)
Wishing you all a Very Happy Christmas indeed ~ and now I want to know what YOU want! 🙂

Yet Jude doesn’t see how badly his life has derailed, not until a ghostly procession of legends passes through his bedroom with a series of vivid and powerful wake-up calls.
Will the Spirits help Jude put the friendship, love, and rock music back into his Christmas?Spirits of
