「一封來自插畫家的信」----Tony Ross

從過去到未來,聖誕節始終是我的最愛。雖然第二次世界大戰讓我的童年過得一塌糊塗,但即便在那樣的時期,聖誕節依然充滿了獨一無二的魔力。那些年,我們全家和當時借住在家中的軍人們共享聖誕晚餐。我們有居家風格的裝飾和餅乾、一隻來自某個農夫朋友的烤鵝,以及我木製的新玩具們—因為爸爸說所有的金屬都要拿去製造飛彈。在我長大之後,我可能偶爾會和多數人一樣,抱怨聖誕節精神已經被商業氣息給污染了,但無論商人們有多麼貪婪和囂張,那些不曾消散的美好記憶,依舊讓聖誕節跟過去一樣美好。

對我來說,對於聖誕節興奮之情大多來自事前的期待。而這也是我之所以想創作本書的原因—透過一系列的聖誕故事,讓讀者們倒數聖誕夜的到來。在我小時候,聖誕節在篝火之夜(11月5日)之後,便宣告開始。學校裡頭開始布置,學生們也開始排演話劇,當節慶氣氛高漲,課程似乎也一天比一天更輕鬆。聖誕夜是我的最愛,包括廚房裡頭忙進忙出的兩位祖母、父母為我準備的聖誕驚喜、我的第一口雪利酒和訪客們的敲門聲。最後我還得早早上床睡覺,否則聖誕老人就不會來了。

對現在的我來說,聖誕節最美好的部分,依然發生在事前的準備期間—例如裝飾聖誕樹時,那些像老朋友一樣的聖誕裝飾們。不論您的信仰、習俗和回憶是什麼,我都希望您能享受本書所帶來的樂趣,並在等待聖誕節到來的過程中,讓本書成為您的家族傳統的一部份。

祝您聖誕快樂,也祝您有個美好的夜晚。
