About the Book

This is a brief history of my life, woven around Christmas and our family’s love of partying, decking the halls, and feasting. Although in recent years the idea of Christmas has become associated with largess, I have always loved the lead-up to the event, the aromas, and the feeling of expectation that the Season brings. The fairy lights, music, and joy combine to make this season like no other. Any excuse for a party!
