I couldn’t find a list so I wrote one myself.


  1. You hope not to discovery you forgot a relative’s gift at the last moment when you see them coming up the walk way for Christmas dinner

  2. You hope the dog doesn’t pull the tree down or eat the ginger bread ornaments

  3. You hope the cat doesn’t climb the tree and send it crashing to the floor.

  4. You hope you’ve cooked enough for everyone in case an unexpected guest drop in.

  5. You hope and pray hubby doesn’t fall off the ladder putting up the outside decoration.

  6. You hope you didn’t forget the batteries for the toys and if so, you hope the store opens before the kids get up. You hope they sleep until at least 8 a.m,. But no, they get up early Christmas morning and when January rolls around they are like zombies in the morning.

  7. You hope your mother-in-law doesn’t criticize your cooking.

  8. You hope the baby stay sleep until you finish all these things.

  9. You hope it doesn’t snow for everyone will be tracking snow and mud in the house. The kids will be outside until they are Popsicles if you don’t make them come inside.

  10. You hope your charitable work was enough through out the year and double down to make sure others have a wonderful Christmas.

  11. You hope everyone go easily on the spike eggnog and your teens have not stole a sip while your back was turned.

  12. You hope the turkey hurry up and get done for you are tired of the kitchen.

  13. You hope the exquisite dessert you made your husband and kids doesn’t eat it all on Christmas Eve night and blame it on Santa or the dog.

  14. You hope no one is on a special diet since you last saw them and they can’t eat peanuts, salt,  sugar, gluten or the list they hand you omits everything on the table.

  15. You hope the latest hot toy your child wants doesn’t cost as much as the house.

  16. You hope when you go for Christmas Mass, the kids aren’t so excited about the next day they can’t sit still. Or if they are in the Nativity play they don’t forget their lines. Let me explain, some denominations besides Catholics have church service on Christmas Eve.

  17. You hope you sent everyone on your list a card.

  18. You hope no one decides they are going to try and watch football in the middle of your dinner.

    All of this is before Christmas. Now we get to after Christmas. Now comes after Christmas.

  19. You wished you had shopped online so the postal service would do your returns.

  20. You postpone taking decoration down until the last moment. Again, you hope hubby doesn’t hurt himself.

  21. The hot new toy is locked in your bedroom closet because the kids were fighting over it.

  22. You hope a blizzard doesn’t form so everyone who came for dinner is stuck in the house and you run out of sleeping space and sheets.

  23. You hope no one complains about eating leftovers for the next two or three days.

  24. By New Years Eve, you hope you haven’t taken your last Tylenol and forgot you took it and all the streets are crowded and often blocked waiting for the ball to drop welcoming the New Year.

  25. By New Year Day you have ran out of “hopes” and is beat! You are asleep and nobody better not dare awake you if it is not an emergency. So this is why some moms don’t get depressed for the holidays. But we do it every year and wouldn’t have it any other way. 🙂

She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
