Serendipity Experience 76: Candy Canes and Christmas Carols

5:28 AM

Candy canes seem to be featuring very strongly in our Christmas preparations this year! My daughter is busy preparing us spectacular Lindt hot chocolates and milkshakes with candy cane stirrers, whilst my son and I are sharing a nightly reading of "The Christmas Carol" accompanied by a glass of milk and mandatory candy cane. We are thoroughly enjoying our nightly reading sessions and have decided we should read more Christmas stories.
We have decided that the next in line will be "The Nutcracker" and "Twas the night before Christmas"
If you have any good Christmas story suggestions please let us know!!!
