People don't usually question holiday traditions or their origins, but maybe they should. Over centuries, explanations of how and why holidays exist may have been lost or changed.
Some holiday histories might only be known by a few individuals. Ancient magic spells could have influenced how we celebrate today. Fairies, zombies, or demons may have shaped our holidays.
Consider the following...
Why do people give red roses and cards on Valentine's Day?
Is there more to the story of Purim than is traditionally told?
Why do people wear green on St. Patrick's Day?
What happens to spirits that are captured during the Japanese Doll Festival?
Where does Santa get his helpers?
You may think you know the truth, but you can't be too sure.

Yes, I may be a little bias -- but let me tell you right now that Holiday Magick needs to be added to your Must-Read list! I have read all the stories in the book and they are fun, whimsical and a great escape from your everyday perceptions about certain holidays!

Having something officially published has been on my bucket list for a VERY long time and I'm so happy that I can now cross it off (although I will never give up on my dream of publishing a full-length novel as well!) I don't think I ever would have done it if it hadn't been for Good Choice Reading, Damaris, Wanda, Amanda, all of our other amazing reviewers, AND YOU -- our followers. Everyday, you all remind me how much I love books and words and reading and writing. And I want to thank you all for that!

So now, here's the giveaway!!! I will send you a paperback copy of Holiday Magick (signed by me!)
