Don’t you hate it when people ask you that?

We all do. Because for most of us, the answer is a resounding NO!
There seems to be an endless list of things to do, things to clean and presents to buy and wrap. Not to mention all the food to buy, prepare and then clean up!

Never fear, your friendly neighborhood library is here to help!
