This brings back lots of good memories... I remember how excited I got when it was time to bring out the Christmas books. I think I even recognize a few of these pictures. Hummm ^___^ Thanks for kindling up the Christmas spirit!

I bloody love 'Angelina's Christmas'.... Truly does remind me of the absolute magic and excitement of Christmas (that which I still feel very much today!) I love the intricate drawings - I have an especially mini edition at home from my childhood, such a beautiful series of books :)
