Holidays on Ice

see MORE

I think one of the first times I realized I liked Josh was when we were spending an afternoon at Barnes and Noble last fall. We were browsing the short essays section (only the greatest area of the bookstore!) when I pulled out Dress Your Family in Denim and Corduroy by David Sedaris and told Josh to read the story Let It Snow (you can read the short essay here). I left him alone for a few minutes and wandered away. I was only a few book cases down when I heard him begin to laugh and realized I sort of liked Josh Davis …alot. Let It Snow is our favorite holiday story. So is Sedaris’ book of small holiday essays, Holidays on Ice.
Being obsessed with the holidays, I read this book twice last year before halloween came. Then I made Josh read it (after I discovered in the bookstore that day that he had the potential of loving David as much as I did). Then, for Christmas, Josh bought me all of Sedaris’ books on CD and I listened to this book again three more times. I just pulled out the CD’s today. It’s time. And highly recommended by the Davis family.
