Several years ago, Kristine Kathryn Rusch sent me an online Christmas advent calendar to share with my daughter, Nola. That one thoughtful gift has turned into a much-anticipated family tradition, in which Nola, my husband, John, and I eagerly check into that calendar each day to see what new and wonderful surprise awaits us.
It’s not a religious thing. It’s a magical Christmas calendar that helps us count down the days until Santa’s visit with games, computer crafts, fun scenes, and more. It’s lovely. I hope Kris knows just how very special it is to us.
I, in turn, started sending it as gifts to friends and family. And that is how Kris discovered it. That is the magic of the holiday season, to me.
So, when Kris proposed the idea of a holiday project that would be a Calendar of Stories, the staff here at WMG jumped at the idea. After a year in development, the project has launched on Kickstarter as the WMG Holiday Spectacular 2019!
