Harlequin Christmas Open House

Barbara Vey -- December 5th, 2012
Christmas Tree

I am not doing my son’s Christmas tree justice with this picture. It’s huge and loaded with special ornaments collected over the years. It could be called a memory tree.

We all have different ways of celebrating Christmas.  This past weekend I visited my son and his family in St. Louis and we exchanged gifts, sat by the tree and had our Christmas dinner.  Meanwhile at home, I don’t even have my tree up (maybe tomorrow).  But the folks at Harlequin are gearing up for the holidays with their annual virtual party.  Here’s the invitation from Jayne at Harlequin, so mark your calendar.

Hi Everyone, I am Jayne and I’m Christmas-aholic. I love everything about Christmas and the holidays: the preparation, the cookies, the gift wrapping, the decorations, the snow, the reindeers and cinnamon and Christmas themed books… I could go on and on (aren’t you glad I stopped though?) So of course now that the weather is becoming chilly I am looking forward to the Big Day. And, what better way to start the preparations than partying with old and new friends in our week-long virtual party, the Community Open House.


Starting Monday, December 10th, we’ll devote the conversations on our message boards and chat rooms to a different Harlequin Series and/or Genre each day, and readers who comment on the posts are automatically eligible for our giveaways until the party winds down on Friday, December 14 at 11:59ET.

What can you expect during our week-long event?

You might find yourself sipping margaritas served by shirtless, brooding billionaires, learning to line dance with a Texas Wrangler or sharing a truncheon of roast boar with a Viking while sharing giggles and great conversation with your fellow princesses and super heroines. You can download FREE stories, screensavers, recipes, knitting patterns, brainteasers and more. And this year stop by Rudolph’s Reindeer Reading Games to uncover coupon codes for discounts on print and ebooks at Harlequin.com

So whether your holidays twinkle, sparkle, glisten or glow, please join us for a jolly good time at our Community Open House – don’t miss out on the prizes and visits by all your favorite Romance characters and authors!!

You can register here to participate in Community.

Bottom Line:  I really just put up a 2 foot tree, so it’s not a big deal and worst of all I keep it decorated all year long. I just throw a garbage bag over it…tell me I’m not the only one.

    Your tree sounds like my husbands that stays wired to a milk crate. The tree might be 2 foot tall and has small heinken lights on it someone gave him at some event. It’s pretty funny for a Charlie Brown tree. :)

    I LOVE Christmas so much! Yet we wound up with a tiny tree this year too. All things winter, all things munchy and cute put together —

    I liked the recommendation of Iced Chiffon too — nothing like reading the perfect cozy over the holidays. That sounds like a good one. :)
