By Nancy Fraser
One of the many things I love about the holiday season are the beautiful Christmas carols. Not just the heartfelt, slow ballads … although those are wonderful. Especially when done by an amazing vocalist.
I also like the cheesy ones like "Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer." Every year I watch diligently as someone will invariably post a new version of an old classic to You Tube and, just as excited as one of my grandchildren opening up a new toy, I’ll be glued to the computer screen enjoying this new rendition.
One of my “new favorites” this year is the wonderfully comical take on the 12 Days of Christmas, complete with hilarious slapstick.
In honor of the holiday season, and taking into consideration those things important to most authors, I thought I’d put together my own version of a 12-Day’s Wish List.
