Imagine sharing your unluckiest Christmas memories with the world – and rewriting history.

That’s exactly what Megan Blake does in MY CHRISTMAS CURSE when she agrees to write a daily Christmas column chronicling her past misfortunes.

As Christmas and her trip home to Indiana near, Meg waits for her Christmas Curse to strike again. Or has it already, causing her father’s depression? In the meantime, her walk down memory lane is conjuring up startling revelations about her present.

She discovers that there is more to her mother than just being a parent. As Meg and her mom bridge their generation gap, can these two women help with her father’s depression?

When she learns that Crush—the first boy she ever liked—will also be in Indiana for the holidays, she can’t help but wonder if he’s still single or happily married with children. Will Crush turn out to be as meaningless as her ex-boyfriends of Christmas past?

Will her blasts from the past leave her questioning her future?

400+ Christmas Carols Book – Sheet Music For Piano

by Ironpower Publishing

It is not the compiler’s purpose to dwell upon the antiquity, the history, and the beauty of the custom of carol singing in connection with the Christmas Festival. There is an abundance of literature on the subject already.

The purpose of this book is to place in the hands of those who enjoy singing Christmas carols and holiday songs an abundance of good material. This book contains 424 titles, most of which are well over a century old.

These traditional classics have amongst them brilliant works by such famous composers as Mozart, Mendelsohn, Bach, Haydn, and Handel.

In no special classification of music has tradition persisted to a greater degree than in Christmas carols; and any collection that does not include the classics of Christmas song is not complete. So, in this book will be found the best examples of the ancient carols, together with more modern compositions embodying the same reverence, simplicity, and spirit of joy that thrill us in the older ones.

They have been compiled from various sources including rare old books that have long been out of print.
