  1. hola amiga! i'm still deciding whether to join the challenge or not lol. i love Christmas. out here, the Christmas season begins September 1st and ends on Epiphany (January 6, 2013). i think we're one of those countries that celebrate the longest Christmas :)
    i read The Christmas Brides a couple of years ago and i enjoyed it!
    have a great weekend! :)

  2. Hola, amigo!

    Oh, it would be WONDERFUL if you joined!! I'd love to read your reviews of these Christmas books!!!! I sure hope you DO join!!!!

    How WONDERFUL that you guys celebrate Christmas over such a long period! I wish it were like that here... The Christmas season is my FAVORITE time of year. I'm always so sad when it's all over...the decorations, the gorgeous music, the anticipation, the gift's all BEAUTIFUL!!

    In Hispanic countries, the season does extend until Epiphany. In fact, the tradition is that the Three Kings are the ones who bring the gifts, not Santa Claus. I LOVE Santa Claus, but wish the season would end after Epiphany, anyway, just to hold on to it

    I'm glad you're recommending THE CHRISTMAS BRIDES! The cover pulled me in right away. Now that I have your recommendation, I know I'll definitely like it as well!

    Thanks for commenting, and you have a GREAT weekend, too!! : )
