Here we are in July week 3. My car is broken down, the kids activities are cancelled, and my July summer vacation was cancelled. When I am not puttering around my yard I play a few rounds of Emily’s Christmas Carol. It’s a video game you can download on the Steam app and it’s part of the Delicious series, which is similar to Diner Dash.

I like what they call “time management” games and this one has pretty Christmas music, graphics, and a story. My favorite level is one you play inside Santa’s house.

I got this game for less than $5 a couple weeks ago, when Steam was having a summer sale. I recommend it and now I am curious about other Christmas games!
