Here at The Strawberry Fountain we love nothing more than a good book and a competition or two so a competition to win a book is the perfect combination. This week we have teamed up with Unbound to offer you the chance to win a copy of Merry Midwinter – How to rediscover the magic of Christmastime by Gillian Monks, all you have to do is following the instructions at the bottom of this page.
Merry Midwinter is a beautiful book tat will entertain and educate you. It is written to help you reconnect with the season and live winter well by rediscovering ancient festivals, easy recipes, traditional decorations and simple homemade gifts. Not only will it have you gripped and wanting to learn more but it will also leave you feeling inspired to put into practice some of the things you are reading about such as making solstice sun biscuits and mulled wine.
This book has a fascinating ability to make you re-address how you celebrate Christmas, the traditions you do follow and those you have long forgotten, as well as making you step back and really think about how commercialised the event has become and how so much of that is unnecessary.
