I hope everyone has been having a fun, safe and happy year. This is my favorite season to celebrate. The festivities of Halloween leading into Thanksgiving, celebrating Christmas and then ringing out the New Year. So many events packed into just a few months. Celebrating Christmas has always been a festive and cheerful time for my family. My family has always liked to give small gifts or tokens through the month of December. This year I was gifted an advent calendar but with a twist: Tea. I love tea, and my mom actually found an advent calendar that has a different tea every day. Now, I can try out different flavors of tea and buy them if I like it. Each day of tea also gives a small saying behind it, which is cute. I was also gifted some comfy socks and a sloth ornament!
What are some of your Christmas Holiday traditions?
Herbs to help you feel like new for mornings after or nights before. Day 1
Cool mint and delicate rose. Perfect partners for a winter’s day. Day 2
This is the cup that’s the carol singer’s friend. Sing loud with herbs that ease and tend. Day 3
“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
Traditionally my family will celebrate Christmas Eves Eve with a family party! Usually one of my aunties will throw a HUGE family party and we celebrate with good food, fun drinks and a Christmas gift exchange. This year it’s a little different since today fell on a Monday, still a workday. So instead we’re moving it to tomorrow and will celebrate on Christmas Eve which is a little different but still fun none the less. Will there be a gift exchange like The White Elephant? Who knows? Either way we will be decked out in cheer, toasting to the holidays and singing Christmas songs at the top of our lungs!
