Book Find: Frohe Weihnachten: Gedichte und Gedanken zum Fest
The story of this latest Book Find starts with a Christmas ornament. My wife and I have had a long-standing tradition of adding one ornament to our tree each year. Ever since our kids have come along we have done the same for them. Early in our marriage before we had kids we occasionally picked a Hallmark ornament. I know, that is so cheap and commercial, right? But one year, Cheryl fell in love with one of those Hallmark ones with a rabbit next to a watering can. It has always been one of her favorite ones.
