Elaine is a woman who loves to have the "perfect" Christmas, from the perfectly tied bow on a package to the perfect decorations for her home. When she finds the perfect snow globe to complete her centerpiece, however, she quickly learns that Christmas means much more to her than having a perfectly decorated house.

My Thoughts
This is the story of Elaine and how she was so bent on having the “perfect” Christmas she never truly took the time to just stop and take it all in. She was always stressed and running around that she never just lived in the present and enjoyed the holidays with her loved ones. Until one day when she found herself trapped in a snow globe, while there she slowly realizes what’s important and what isn’t. Yes this story is a stretch but it’s a fun way to show us what the most important thing about the holidays is. Sometimes we just rush trying to make everyone happy and wanting to make everything just so that we never just enjoy. This is a very cute read one that we all should read if we ever find ourselves getting to caught up in the craziness of Christmas and not enjoying what it’s really all about.
