Happy Sunday, friends! Are you recovered from your Thanksgiving turkey coma yet? Or still forcing down leftovers and trying to come up with creative ways to serve turkey? 😉

We are officially in the Christmas season now and I could not be happier. I adore all things Christmas!! It’s by far my favorite holiday!! Ahhhhhhhh!! I’m seriously so excited 😀

A group I belong to on Facebook was discussing a week or so ago which fictional world we’d love to visit. I’m going a step further today and asking which fictional world/family would you love to visit for CHRISTMAS?

For me, definitely Narnia and Hogwarts. But I’m convinced that there’s a portal to Narnia somewhere inside Hogwarts so it’s entirely possible to visit both at the same time 🙂 I think I would also love to visit Laura Ingalls Wilder’s family from the Little House books during Christmas – I wouldn’t want to stay overly long because I want my creature comforts y’all but Christmas in those books always seemed so delightfully cozy.  And the Binders from Cynthia Ruchti’s An Endless Christmas. They totally captured my heart.

Ok, now it’s your turn! Which fictional world or family would you love to visit for Christmas?

    Brighton (Rachel Hauck’s Royal Christmas Wedding). Seems like such a magical place, especially during Christmas.

    I love the original version of “Miracle on 34th Street” with the grand departments stores, downtown parades and magical atmosphere.

    I’ve actually visited Sunriver and Bend which is on Kimberly Rose Johnson’s Book – The Christmas Homecoming.
    It’s a great book!
    And Christmas in Central Oregon is VERY BEAUTIFUL!

    I would love to be a part of the family in While You Were Sleeping. They are such a fun and welcoming group.

    Definately the Victorian period from “A Christmas Carol”. I love the Victorian era, the clothes are so lovely and the scenes in “A Christmas Carol” are so inviting,with all those charming stores and their decorated Christmas windows.

      that would be so delightful to visit at Christmas, wouldn’t it?

    I’d like to visit the Callahan brothers and their New England Christmas Tree Farm from Denise Hunter’s Summer Harbor series. I wouldn’t mind if they adopted me into their family. Assuming I was a single and another Callahan brother was discovered. 😉

    Laura, Hogwarts, and Narnia for sure…..Hahaha!!!! It’s like we have similar tastes or something. I would add Green Gables to my list too. Haha

      ooooo yes!!! I forgot about Green Gables! That would be delightful.

    Oh my gosh! To have to choose is torture! There are SOOOO many! Definitely Narnia and Hogwarts like you mentioned! But I would also include The Shire from Hobbit/Lord of the Rings; Bilbo’s home seems so comfy and inviting! I would also include the village from A Christmas Carol with all the Victorian holiday traditions and food! I would also like to visit the village of Mitford from Jan Karon’s world with Father Timothy and Cynthia, Dooley and the rest of the town. I am sure there are more…but that is all I will put down…..for now 😉
