Today marks the day of the winter solstice, the longest night of the year, and the turning point from which the days will get longer and brighter from here on.
Time constraints meant that my roommate and I celebrated Yule this weekend, with our usual feast and exchange of presents. I’m sure you can imagine how excited I was when I opened my present from my roommate and found this:
Delight! I’ve been wanting to read this book since I first saw the movie (the original, mind, and not the North American remake), and I haven’t been able to find it in stores until relatively recently. Which is, of course, the time I have no money to spare on buying books for myself. I was going to order it from Amazon with some gift certificates that I have, but now I don’t need to!
I’m greatly looking forward to opening this one and reading it. I hear excellent things about it!
