Which camp are you in? The decorate/celebrate/listen to Christmas music early camp or the wait until after Thanksgiving is over camp? I’m in the first one (but my tree isn’t up yet. Maybe this weekend, though). My reasoning is that one month just isn’t enough to enjoy the season.
So this week I’m introducing my first Christmas book of the season into First Line Friday (and this impatient person **points finger and myself** read this book over a month ago, so I’ve done well to hold off this long).
This one is double special for me because Carnton Plantation is one of my favorite places to visit. The guides who take you through the home are wonderful story tellers and you can imagine the members of the household as a battle raged outside. But you don’t have to make a trip to Franklin, Tennessee to experience the beauty and wonder of Carnton. Tamera Alexander places it right in your hands in Christmas at Carnton.
