What joys will your #Christmas Bring?

By 22/12/2014March 4th, 2016Uncategorized

This Christmas, I’m going to take a reading break.

That Christmas tree you see to the left? It is two stories tall, and it is made entirely of books. (It’s bringing in the festive season at the Singapore National Library, from where I borrowed no less than eight books.)

This week, I’ll gather me those books, order me some food, curl up on the sofa and read. What with all the traveling, the work, and the writing, I’ve been having withdrawal symptoms– I crave days of uninterrupted reading.

Luckily, my family doesn’t mind my nerdy habits. 

What about you? Prayer, Goodwill, Friends, Food, Family? Downtime? 

Wherever you are, and whatever it is you’re planning for Christmas, I hope you have a good one. See you in the New Year!
