Reply Catherine Leipciger on December 26, 2018 at 3:20 pm December 24, Christmas Eve, 1944: Some definite Christmas feels there. A touching war-time holiday tale. The fact that it is based on the author’s mother’s experiences really brings it home. Lots of great detail—I will have to keep my eyes open for the novel. I remember seeing one of those Clubmobile-type vehicles at the War Museum in Ottawa—means a bit more now. Loading... Reply annelogan17 on December 26, 2018 at 4:36 pm Oh wow, very cool to learn that’s real! Although, what a thing to make up. Sometimes reality is stranger than fiction Loading... Reply Catherine Leipciger on December 26, 2018 at 3:26 pm December 25, The Age of Doubt: I wish I could frame this one. The author totally captured the “ghost of childhood”. I think 9 must be the age one starts questioning—it was for me. I distinctly remember finding the stash of Easter baskets in my parents’ closet and thinking, “If there isn’t an Easter Bunny, that must mean…” The dots were connected; but, like Laurie, I still believe in the “spirit of Santa”. What a gift this story was—the whole collection, really. Thanks, Anne, for sharing your wealth of knowledge and taking time out of your very hectic holiday schedule to discuss these stories.

I can’t say I have a wealth of knowledge, but I of course have lots of opinions hahah Loading... Reply FictionFan on December 26, 2018 at 5:43 pm Well done – very enjoyable videos! That advent calendar is so annoying, though – I can’t believe they stuck an ordinary choc behind that huge square! Still at least it wasn’t one of those chocolate squares… 😡 Glad the last two stories had a festive theme, but I’m a bit concerned – are you suggesting that Santa isn’t real??? You’ll be on his naughty list next year, for sure… Loading... Reply annelogan17 on December 26, 2018 at 6:47 pm haha you know as I was filming the video I thought to myself “What if a child watches this? Am I ruining the myth for them?” so I should have included a disclaimer at the end-OF COURSE Santa is real 🙂 Loading... Reply FictionFan on December 27, 2018 at 9:56 am Phew! 😀 Loading... Grab the Lapels on December 26, 2018 at 7:12 pm It’s strange: my brother and I were told about Santa, but I don’t recall ever believing. Maybe my parents aren’t sneaky enough. I had a nice Christmas that was made weird when Granny gave everyone pillows made out of my grandpa’s shirts. He’s been dead 4.5 years. 😐 Loading... Reply annelogan17 on January 6, 2019 at 5:18 pm Huh-that’s quite the Christmas memory! Loading... Reply Naomi on January 10, 2019 at 8:01 am I skipped to the end, and I’m a bit late, but I thought after all your hard work, you deserved a big Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and Great Job!! 🙂 Loading...
