For all those who are Christmas-challenged, and even if you’re not, the library may be a good place to visit. Each branch has books to help you decorate your home, prepare the feast, and host the gathering you've dreamed of. Not all of these titles are held in every branch, but all locations have similar items.
One book that is a great help for those planning to entertain this Christmas is Canadian Living’s The Complete Christmas Book. It is mostly a cookbook, but also includes decorating and craft ideas.
I know there are many who enjoy giving gifts from the kitchen. Company’s Coming: Gifts from the kitchen by Jean Pare is available in several branches. This book has been around for about ten years, but, as is the case with all Jean Pare’s books, it is timeless.
For anyone who enjoys making crafts with children during the holiday season, check out Christmas crafts from around the world by Judy Ann Sadler. The book includes a note about each easy to do, inexpensive craft.
And if all this is too much for you, check out Holiday Cocktails by Jessica Strand, curl up on the couch and watch one of the classic Christmas movies, which is what I’ll be talking about next time.
