Keeping Christmas by Dan Walsh

     A heartening tale of a couple who do not feel like celebrating and decorating for Christmas.  The wife is very depressed since all the children have left home and just can't find it in her to decorate.  The husband tries to help her out by bring up some of the more memorable handmade ornaments, but she keeps resiting.  What takes place to change things is a sacrifice on the husband's part.
     While I can sympathize with the wife, not wanting to just decorated for the two of them, I felt like she should have given in some when the husband want to help.   It can be hard to want to carry on traditions when you feel like the people you normally celebrate with are not around to celebrate with.
     I was given a copy of this book to read for free from the publisher.
