can you believe Christmas is only a few days away? I have lots of fond memories of
exciting, crazy, and peaceful holidays. Besides the twinkling lights,
fragrant candles, cheerful decorations, and mouth-watering smells coming from the
kitchen, here are a few of my Christmas favorites.
Traditions: Since I was a kid, I've always made (or helped make) Christmas sugar cookies and Chex mix.
Pecan pie, my grandmother's white candy - made with Eagle Brand
milk & walnuts, Archway Nutty Nougat cookies, homemade hot cocoa
Gifts: I love presents! Nothing
beats the delight of giving or receiving a special little surprise.
Songs: White Christmas, I'll Be Home For Christmas, I Believe in Santa
Claus (Kenny & Dolly), Nuttin' for Christmas (Sugarland)
Christmas Vacation, Polar Express, A Charlie Brown Christmas
It's wonderful when we get a white Christmas, but it doesn't happen often. I love
snow anytime, so I'd settle for flurries.
Santa: I believe! Whether I've been naughty or nice, he always manages to leave me a little something.
