I am addicted to Christmas. I am one of the few people who get a happy smile when the first decorations show up in the shops in early October, who buys special Christmas magazine editions and can ask my husband what theme we want for the tree this year on a hot summer day at the beach. I say addicted but someone else might say that I am nuts.
I love candles, gingerbreads, advent calendars, snow flakes, sleigh rides, Christmas decorations, cookie dough, moss, Grinchen with Jim Carey, the smell of hyacinths and making wreaths for the front door. I like planning gifts, making gifts, wrapping gifts, baking, drinking glühwine, eating oranges, wearing mittens, long johns and evening walks in the snow looking in through windows at other people’s decorations. I love making Christmas cards, sending Christmas cards, receiving Christmas cards, making snowmen, feeding the birds, decorate my house, decorate the tree and decorate me. I lo….. yeah I guess you get the picture!
