Today’s Boxing Day in Canada (like America’s Black Friday) but no one will take me shopping (I can’t drive). Oh well, I’m sure the sales will be on for a while.
My Christmas was nice. It was very much what I’m used to. That said, I am eager to have my own traditions and I hope to change things around a bit next year. When it comes to holidays or special occasions, I think of your five senses; smell, touch, sight, sound, taste. At Christmas I like to smell baked goods and candles (or a real fireplace like my parents have), touch a Christmas tree and scarves, see lights and snow and people I love, hear laughter and music, and taste spiked hot chocolate and shortbread…. among many other things. If I get that, I’m content.
A few of my received gifts:
My husband and I will have our own mini little Christmas when we get to our new home in California, mid-January. :)
