It's the annual Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories! I've participated the past five years (2009 through 2013), and this year, the prompts and their sequence are the same as in 2013. Due to some pressing needs to get some other projects done (like gift books for my parents made out of the previous years' blog posts), I'm going to link to the appropriate post from 2013 (which also links to older posts, when applicable) in the prompt title, and add a relevant photo.
The prompt for December 17 – Christmas Stories
An author who lives nearby, Lori Wilde, writes romance novels set in the mythical town of Twilight, Texas - which is based on my home of Granbury. Three of the books are set in Twilight at Christmastime - which makes them Christmas stories, right? One of those (The Christmas Cookie Collection) is actually a compilation of four novellas, pictured below.
