It's day two of this great challenge and I'm super excited about today's topic. Again the 7 Day Holiday Blogging Challenge is being hosted by the wonderful Parajunkee. To learn more about this challenge, CLICK HERE.
Today's Topic is Fave Holiday Scene in a Book
Now this one was hard for me to figure out. I have so many favorite books that have Holiday scenes in them and most of you are going to say the obvious, which of course is Harry Potter. Before anyone yells at me for not picking Harry Potter, it is one of my favorites, but I didn't want to use the example everyone was going to use. So instead I picked one that I'm thinking not many will even think of.
My favorite holiday scene in a book comes from The Ultimate Gift. Now this book was turned into an amazing movie on the Hallmark channel and I love the movie so much. The book is way better of course, and there are three books to be exact in the series.
The scene I'm talking about is one where the main character gives a little girl her Christmas wish, to ride a horse, but come to find out the little girl is scared of horses and the real wish was for her mom to get to ride. She also really wanted to see snow and Christmas lights and of course he does that for the little girl as well.
The main character in this story is one that was used to having everything handed to him and the grandfather ends up dying, he leaves him little tasks to do or tests and if he can complete them he will get what the grandfather called the Ultimate gift. Well he met the little girl when he had to help a stranger and it all falls into place after that. Oh and I don't want to give anything else away, but this book will make you cry. Fair warning, don't come back to me yelling because I didn't warn you! It's a fantastic story though, about love and not giving up.
and Merry Christmas (Even though it's a few day's early still)
