THE KISSING BOUGH
Jerri Gibson McCloud's
"A 'THANK YOU' CHRISTMAS "
Just what IS
a Kissing Bough? Why do we
love Santa Claus or Kris Kringle so much?
Where do all those treasured customs and rituals come from? Why do we think it necessary to kiss under the mistletoe?
The Kissing Bough is a
wonderful collection of stories that explore the meaning of the holiday
season. Some of the stories
remind us why the spirit of Christmas is so important to individuals and
families. Other stories
remind us that human nature is what it is, no matter what the holiday
season says it should be! Long
buried secrets will out. Murder
happens even during this time of good cheer.
Envy, jealousy and loneliness will rub shoulders with seasonal
feelings of good will and brotherly love.
Along the way, The Kissing
Bough gives the reader insight into the ancient customs and traditions
that make modern day Christmas what it is.
