From: A Sticky Situation
Series: The Sugar Grove Mysteries
Author: Jessie Crockett
There isn't any snow here yet but that hasn't dampened the holiday spirit here in Sugar Grove, NH. With Christmas just around the corner all the family is sneaking round the house, secreting in shopping bags and wrapping up packages. Grandma has spent the last few days locked in her room. We can hear the rapid clacking of her knitting needles right through the door.
Holiday food preparations are underway too. Cooling cookies cover the counters in the kitchen. There's a turkey brining in the refrigerator and Grampa has made a last minute batch of maple popcorn balls.
Carolers stopped at the farm just last weekend, their cheeks rosy and voices slightly off key as they made merry in the crisp night air. My niece and nephew will appear in the holiday concert at the school celebrating the season with renditions of Jingle Bells and Deck the Halls.
It all feels like the holidays. It all feels like home.
Leave a comment about what you do for fun and festivity throughout the season for a chance to win a copy of one of Jessie Crockett's Sugar Grove Mysteries.
