Midwinter’s Eve Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the 2017 Midwinter’s Eve Giveaway Hop, hosted by Bookhounds!

Today is the shortest day of the year, at least in the Northern Hemisphere. And tonight, well, tonight is the longest night. And possibly a chilly one as well, depending on where you live.

Unlike all the holidays that center around this time of year, the longest night is a phenomenon that simply happens, whether we chose anything to mark it or not. One has to wonder how its been marked in the past, and how it will be in the future. Or how it might be, on some other planet in some other universe, if the planet tilts towards its sun at the right angle to make it happen.

One of the books I read this holiday season, Amid the Winter Snow, shows the Winter Solstice celebration in four completely different fantasy universes. If you’re looking for a holiday book with a bit of a twist, I highly recommend it.

But however you will be whiling away the longest night, here’s a chance to win a $10 Amazon Gift Card or a $10 Book to help you while away some of the chilly winter nights yet to come.

  1. I don’t know! I live in Florida, and it’s been in the upper 70s-lower 80s. I wish it would get cold. It never seems like winter here 🙁

  2. A pile of warm blankets is traditional, but this year I’ve discovered the amazing powers of tea and infusions. Both together = warm, toasty, cozy me (for a while, at least!)

  3. I warm up on a cold winter day by putting on a heavy sweatshirt, curling up on the couch with a fleece blanket and drink a hot chocolate or tea.

  4. I like to cuddle up under a fleece blanket with my cat! Hope you have a great holiday! Thanks for this amazing giveaway – I would love to win!

  5. Wool socks and lots of tea. I especially love this warming tea recipe: black tea, with half a teaspoon of a spices mix (ginger and cardamom, with a bit of cloves, coriander and black pepper) per pot added. Delicious with or without milk.
