Celebrating Christmas in July with Christmas Reflections by Joanne Jaytanie #RB4U #Romance #Christmas

This month we at Romance Books 4 Us, are celebrating Christmas in July. It may be hot and sunny outside, but at Forever Christmas tree farm, every day is a celebration of that one extraordinary day of the year. 



Forever Christmas Tree Farm is the heart of Glenville. The place where locals and visitors gather and attend events, not only at Christmastime but all year ‘round. An enchanting place, a place of new beginnings, a refuge for those in need—a place of love.  


Just this past week, I was honored by author Kristine Raymond, as she chose to read the first few pages of Christmas Reflections, book one in the Forever Christmas In Glenville Collection, on her new YouTube channel - First Pages. Take a break from your ‘To Do’ list or your hectic schedule, grab a seat and enjoy.



I based this collection on my home town and my early Christmases. I believe my longing to write these stories are best described in the dedication in Forever Christmas in Glenville Collection.

DEDICATION

To my hometown of, Sherburne, New York. Where bringing home your Christmas tree meant, treading through the snow and hiking the hills to find that special one.

Where Christmas was celebrated with a life-size manger in the village square. Santa arriving on a big red fire engine, handing out oranges and candy canes.

Where brightly colored lights glistened though a thick layer of sparkly, pure-white snow.

Where carolers strolled from house to house, stopping along the way to partake in their neighbor’s offerings of piping hot apple cider and cocoa.

And children could spend the day sledding, building snowmen, making snow angels, and having friendly snowball fights.

Christmas is the time to give thanks. Take the time to reflect on your life and be grateful for those you love…

Immerse yourself in the spirit of the holidays.
  


Revel in today. Take time to lay on the beach, read a book, and soak up the sun. Because all to soon autumn with be upon us and will quickly slide into those long chilly winter nights. But that doesn’t mean we still can’t enjoy – Christmas in July!

Until next month…
Joanne
