Blogmas Book Quotes | Anne of Green Gables
Hello! It has been snowing so much the past few days. Where I live, it has been transformed into a winter wonderland. So, when I came across this little passage from Anne of Green Gables, it reminded me of how magical snow truly can be!
Christmas morning broke on a beautiful white world. It had been a very mild December and people had looked forward to a green Christmas; but just enough snow fell softly in the night to transfigure Avonlea. Anne peeped out from her frosted gable window with delighted eyes. The firs in the Haunted Wood were all feathery and wonderful; the birches and wild cherry trees were outlined in pearl; the plowed fields were stretches of snowy dimples; and there was a crisp tang in the air that was glorious. Anne ran downstairs singing until her voice reechoed through Green Gables.
“Merry Christmas, Marilla! Merry Christmas, Matthew! Isn’t it a lovely Christmas? I’m so glad it’s white. Any other kind of Christmas doesn’t seem real, does it?”
~ L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
